This bowler made a big disclosure
Shoaib Akhtar, the former fast bowler of the Pakistan cricket team, believed in injuring the batsmen more than getting them bowled. Akhtar has shared an anecdote with fans about India’s tour of Pakistan in 2006, in which he himself has revealed that he also wanted to injure Tendulkar. Test series was played between India and Pakistan in the year 2006. Akhtar wanted to do this in the third Test match of the series.
Akhtar (Shoaib Akhtar) said in a conversation with Sportskeeda, ‘I am disclosing this for the first time. In that Test match, I was deliberately trying to injure Sachin. I had thought that I have to hurt Sachin at any cost. Inzamam told me many times to keep the ball stump to stump, but I was intent on hurting Sachin. I hit a ball on his helmet and I thought he had hit his head. But then when I saw the video, I found that Sachin had saved his head.
Irfan Pathan took hat-trick
This is the same Test match in which fast bowler Irfan Pathan had completed his hat-trick in the very first over. In the first over of this match, he got his hat-trick in Tests by dismissing Salman Butt, Younis Khan and Mohammad Yusuf. But in this match, Team India had to face defeat. In this match, Pakistan defeated India by 341 runs.
