Former Indian batsman Virender Sehwag was known for his explosive game. He has been on fire with the bat against good fast bowlers in his career. Also, many record towers have been set. Even though he has retired from cricket, he is still in the news for one reason or another. He constantly makes some statement about cricket. In this way, he has once again come into the limelight due to a statement. He has made that statement about former Pakistan batsman Inzamam-ul-Haq.
Virender Sehwag commented on this in an interview. He said, “Everyone talks about Sachin Tendulkar, but I consider Inzamam-ul-Haq the best middle-order batsman in Asia. Eng Bhai was very good. Sachin Tendulkar was also on top of the list of batsmen. We cannot measure him. However, I have not seen a better batsman in Asia than Inzamam.”
‘Inzamam used to keep his cool with an average of around 8’
Speaking further, Sehwag said, “In 2003-04 when scoring 8 runs per over was considered difficult, he used to say, don’t worry, let’s take it easy. Any team would be scared to score 80 runs in 10 overs, but Inzamam kept calm at an average of around 8 during that period. He used to say that it will be done, don’t worry.”
Inzamam ul Haq is one of Pakistan’s best batsmen ever. He played 120 Tests, 378 ODIs and 1 T20I for Pakistan between 1991 and 2007. He was also part of Pakistan’s World Cup winning team in 1992.
Inzamam unhappy with PCB’s selection based on data
Recently, Inzamam had expressed his displeasure over the selection based on the data of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). He had said, “I have doubts about the new selection committee and so do many people in the cricket world. It would have been better if they had included the cricketers who go out and perform on the field.”
‘Never heard of data-driven selection’
He further said, “I have never heard of data-based selection and it is not possible anywhere. Selection should be done on the basis of field performance. With whatever knowledge I have of cricket, I don’t think it’s a good decision.”
The selection committee announced by the PCB last month includes chief selector Haroon Rashid, team director Mickey Arthur, head coach Grant Bradburn and Hasan Cheema. (inzamam ul haq was biggest middle order batter in asia says indian former cricketer virender sehwag)
