Pakistan’s all time favorite ‘googly boy’ Shahid Afridi, in a meeting with Wisden Cricket Monthly, named West Indies’ unbelievable batsman Brian Lara as the hardest batsman he at any point bowled to.
The 40-year-old uncovered that he was constantly apprehensive while bowling to the Lara in light of the fact that he could hit you for a limit on any ball.
“That would need to be Brian Lara,” said Afridi. “I got him out a couple of times however at whatever point I was bowling to him I generally had the inclination in the rear of my psyche that he is going to hit me for four the following ball. He affected me. I never bowled with any certainty to him.”
The previous all-rounder expressed that Lara was a world-class batsman who commanded the best spinners in the game.
“He was a world-class batsman who commanded the best spinners he faced, even any semblance of Muttiah Muralitharan in Sri Lanka. His footwork against spinners was splendid and the manner in which he batted against such bowlers was a great sight. He was sheer class,” he closed.
