- In cricket, there is maybe no more noteworthy competition than among India and Pakistan.
- During new cooperation with Sportskeeda, Akhtar reviewed a story from their 2007 visit.
While these challenges have become an uncommon event currently, happening just during ICC occasions – in the past, both the nations used to visit the other country for a visit.
A few previous Pakistan cricketers have conceded that they had a truly extraordinary time visiting India, and incredible speedster Shoaib Akhtar is one of them.
During new cooperation with Sportskeeda, Akhtar reviewed a story from their 2007 visit. The players of India and Pakistan cricket crews assembled at honours work in which he attempted to lift Sachin Tendulkar for the sake of entertainment. Nonetheless, the expert slipped from his hold and tumbled down.
What happened from that point, the Rawalpindi Express describes:
“After Pakistan, in case there is one nation where I have gotten a great deal of affection, it is India. I have a ton of good recollections from my visits to India. During the 2007 visit, there was honours work. So clearly, there was a social affair after the capacity. Then, of course, I needed to accomplish something else.
Along these lines, I attempted to lift Sachin Tendulkar for no reason in particular. I figured out how to lift him; however, he slipped from my hands at that point. Tendulkar tumbled down, not that severe, but rather I pondered internally that ‘I am dead’. I expected that if Sachin Tendulkar gets unsuitable or harmed, I could never get an Indian Visa. The Indians could never permit me to return to the nation or would consume me alive.”
Akhtar further expressed that Tendulkar was OK in the wake of tumbling down, and later, the Indian batting legend pounded Pakistan in the two-sided series.
“At the point when he tumbled down, I truly thought I am accomplished forever. I recall Harbhajan Singh and Yuvraj Singh were additionally there, and they were advising me, ‘What are you doing, man?’ And I reacted by saying ‘I don’t have the foggiest idea; it simply occurred.’ So, then, at that point, I proceeded to embrace Tendulkar and inquired as to whether he was alright. Fortunately, he said he was fine.
“Then, at that point, I advised him on the off chance that anything would have occurred, it might have raised a huge ruckus to me, particularly with the media and every one of the fans in India. Tendulkar later pounded us in the series. By then, I wished he was unsuitable,” Akhtar added.
