Indian cricket crew has had some extraordinary batters over time however nobody has been in a position to match the greatness of the legendary Sachin Tendulkar. The Grasp Blaster had an enormous profession of 24 years and broke quite a few data with the bat. Nevertheless, one bowler who at all times used to hassle Tendulkar was Pakistan’s former all-rounder Abdul Razzaq. There was once a tough-time for Tendulkar every time he can be going through Razzaq and after his retirement he even praised the all-rounder for his greatness.

Speaking about Sachin’s reward, Razzaq expressed his gratitude in the direction of the Indian legend for mentioning his title among the many greats and said that it was his variety and humble nature that he did it.

“First of all, Sachin Tendulkar was and will always remain a world-class batsman. However, the star that he was and the kind of fan following which he had, Sachin didn’t need to say it (that Razzaq was a tough bowler to face). I never understood Sachin’s need to take my name. He could have named anyone – Glenn McGrath, Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Ambrose and Walsh, Muralitharan and Shane Warne. So he didn’t need to,” Razzaq said on The Nadir Ali podcast.

“It was his greatness. The words he chose for me – and I’ve said this earlier as well – he was being too kind. Not once; he said it quite a few times. Even Sehwag did. A bunny is someone who constantly troubles a batter. But I never gloated in it too much,” he added.

Earlier in March, Razzaq had revealed that it was Virender Sehwag that the Pakistan crew thought of the ‘most harmful’, with Tendulkar occupying the second spot within the checklist.

“Virender Sehwag was the most dangerous player. After that Sachin Tendulkar. Pakistan used to plan against Sehwag and Tendulkar. Our plan used to be like – if we get these two wickets – Sehwag and Tendulkar – we will win the match. In bowling, our batsmen used to plan against Zaheer Khan. Irfan Pathan was there too for some time. Harbhajan Singh was there. These were the big names who played big matches and performed for their country,” Razzaq revealed in a chat with the Occasions of India.
