If I was bowling, I would go wider of the crease and pitch the ball up: Shoaib Akhtar on Virat Kohli

“I had a good time bowling to Sachin Tendulkar. He is one of the greatest batsmen of all-time but I dismissed him 12-13 times as well. Although, Indians only remember that one six which he hit me in Centurion [during the 2003 ICC World Cup] as it makes them really happy,” the Rawalpindi express said.
“If I had known that one six makes 1.3 billion people happy, then I would have let him hit me for a six every day,” he added.
