Indian swing bowler Irfan Pathan picked his two favourite batsmen from Indian cricket team and those are non other than the his former teammates Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman. Irfan also declared Adam Gilchrist and Inzamam-ul-Haq, as his toughest opponents among his entire career.
Pathan said,”I have to say that I am very lucky to have played alongside two batsmen, VVS Laxman and Sachin Tendulkar. I had to bowl them in the nets and they were the best. Talking about internationally, I feel Adam Gilchrist and Inzamam-ul-Haq were the toughest to bowl to. Especially Gilchrist, he could hit you for a pull shot, he could loft you (and) the margin of error was quite small. Inzy (Inzamam) was (also) difficult to bowl to.”
Pathan also told about his hat-trick wicket performance against Pakistan Cricket team in Karachi Test match and also about his match winning spell in 2007 World T20 Final,”Well that’s a difficult question but it was really fun bowling the hat-trick. Any performance that helps to contribute in winning is memorable. So at the end of the day, you want your team to win. Hence, WT20 performance gave me more satisfaction.”
