Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi has supported retired fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar’s claims that Indian batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar was scared of his pace.
In his book, ‘Controversially Yours’, Akhtar wrote that the Sachin was scared of his bowling.
When asked about Akhtar’s claims, Shahid Afridi said that he saw Tendulkar’s legs shivering while facing Akhtar.
“Shoaib is telling the truth. Tendulkar was afraid of him, and while fielding, I saw Tendulkar’s legs shivering while facing his bowling”, Afridi said.
“There are times when every batsman feels the pressure, it happens against [Pakistani off-spinner] Saeed Ajmal even,” said Afridi.
