He believes that the game of Cricket in itself is a test of nerves, skills, patience, intelligence for the players. During our time, all the batsmen and bowlers from India and Pakistan tried to give their best when the two nations played against each other. Few days earlier, former Pakistani fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar proposed a Charity three match ODI series between India and Pakistan, to help people fight against Coronavirus with the funds that the game will raise. I am not supporting Shoaib or for that matter opposing Sunny Bhai ( Sunil Gavaskar ) or Kapil Dev . The off-break bowler also laments about the fact that the shortest format of the game effecting the emergence of quality finger spinners these days. A plan to bowl batsmen between the gap of bat and pad, to get him caught on the slips, to even get him run out. If the emphasis continue to be on the shorter formats, instead of Test Cricket, it would be difficult to find quality spinners.” The former England Spin-bowling coach is still confident of getting rid of the modern greats like the way he bamboozled batsmen of yester years. The fastest bowler to reach 250 ODI scalps, oozes confidence when he says, “I’ve got the likes of Ben Stokes and Joe Root in the England nets and I’m confident that I can get Virat out in the nets too. If in the near future, India-Pakistan bilateral series resumes, I challenge that I would get Kohli out in the nets,” the wiley customer concludes.
