Feared Virender Sehwag The Most – Inzamam Ul Haq

Virender Sehwag was nothing short of a menace for the opposing bowlers, as when he was in the mood; the right-hander would decimate records for fun. Sehwag had the reputation of being a nightmare for all bowlers, and barely any opposing bowler was left unscathed from the fury emitting out of Sehwag’s willow. Out of all oppositions, though, Sehwag had a key affair with Pakistan. The Nawab of Najafgarh averaged a jaw-dropping 91 runs per innings against Pakistan in Test matches.


Former Pakistan captain Inzamam Ul Haq, who was time and again on the receiving end of Sehwag’s onslaughts, admitted that he feared the Indian opener the most. In his conversation with Geo in Lahore, Inzamam added that when Sehwag got going, stopping him was a big headache for everyone in the Pakistan camp.


“Sehwag was a dangerous player because if he scored 80 odd runs it meant his team would end up scoring 300 or more in a Test or ODI. The more time he spent time at the crease the more he dented the morale of the bowlers, which was worrying for me as captain,” Inzamam said.

The batting legend went on to say that the Indo-Pak rivalry was even bigger than the Ashes. “People want to see Indo-Pak matches but there is nothing one can do about it until things are normal at the government level. Personally, I always enjoyed the challenge of playing against India and it made a better player. To me an Indo-Pak series has always been even bigger than the Ashes,” Inzamam added.

He urged the two nations to resume their bilateral relationship as it would benefit everyone involved. “Overall it is not good for cricket and for both countries not to play bilateral series. But from a Pakistani perspective it has done us more damage as already foreign teams are also not touring Pakistan and our young players are not getting chances to play matches against international sides before playing for the senior team.”
