Saqlain still cherishes his battles with Tendulkar

Dec 24 2012, 9:24am CST | by

New Delhi, Dec 24 (IANS) Former Pakistan off-spinner Saqlain Mushtaq said it was an honour playing against India batting great Sachin Tendulkar and he enjoyed bowling to the master blaster.

New Delhi, Dec 24 — Former Pakistan off-spinner Saqlain Mushtaq said it was an honour playing against India batting great Sachin Tendulkar and he enjoyed bowling to the master blaster.

Mushtaq, who played his last international match in 2004, said the cricket world has suffered a huge loss with the retirement of Tendulkar.

"The world of one day cricket has suffered a huge loss with Sachin Tendulkar's retirement from one day internationals. There will never be another cricketer like Tendulkar. He's been at the top of the game for twenty three years which is simply amazing and the way he has conducted himself throughout his career has been exemplary and a lesson to all young cricketers around the world," Mushtaq was quoted as saying by PakPassion.net MOnday.

On playing against Tendulkar, Mushtaq said: "I feel honoured to have played cricket in an era when Tendulkar played. It's been an honour to have bowled to Sachin. I've dismissed him, been hit for four, hit for six by Sachin, beaten him with deliveries. He's out thought me at the crease and sometimes I've got the better of him and it's always been an absolute pleasure."

Mushtaq recalled the time he spent with Tendulkar in England.

"I've always got on very well with Sachin and when I was playing for Sussex alongside Mushtaq Ahmed, the touring Indian team was playing a three day match against the County. Most of the Indian squad had dinner at Mushtaq's house every night during that match and I was present too. We had a few great evenings with the Indian squad in Sussex, all sat on the floor eating and talking about past matches that we had played in and it was an honour to be in the company of Sachin, memories that I still cherish," he said.

On resumption of cricket ties between India and Paksitan, Mushtaq added: "It's fantastic news that India and Pakistan are on the verge of a limited overs series and I sincerely hope that this is the start of regular cricket between the two teams. There's nothing quite like the Indo-Pak cricketing rivalry. The Ashes is also a huge rivalry but I think India versus Pakistan is a bigger cricketing rivalry."

India's New Generation of Batsmen See Their Reputations Torn to Shreds

As more than 1.2 billion Indians celebrated their nation’s 68th Independence Day, 11 others haplessly surrendered to their erstwhile rulers on the cricket field. August 15, 2014, could now well be remembered as the day India’s hopes of being buoyed by their new generation of cricketers came crashing down and plunged deep into the ocean. When Sachin Tendulkar had retired in November last year, Indian fans looked ahead to the ...

Sri Lanka's Kumar Sangakkara Further Cements His Place at Cricket's Top Table

Aug 9 2014 9:33am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Kumar Sangakkara’s latest double-hundred against Pakistan in the first Test at Galle has only served to reaffirm the Sri Lankan’s status as one of the game’s all-time great batsmen. The erudite law graduate was finally out just before tea on Day 4 for 221, having added 119 more runs to his overnight score, in the process edging past West Indian legend Brian Lara with what was the 10th double-century of his Test career. And now only Sir Donald Bradman, with 12 double-tons, remains ...

Can India Stop Varun Aaron's Talent as a Fast Bowler Going to Waste?

Aug 8 2014 2:47pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

"Imagine being able to bowl that ball just once in your life," ESPN Cricinfo's Jarrod Kimber remarked on Twitter.  "That ball" he was referring to was one from Varun Aaron that dismissed Moeen Ali on Day 2 of the fourth Test between England and India at Old Trafford. "That ball" was one delivered from around the wicket, one that started wide before viciously swinging into the left-hander, one that seemed like a heat-seeking missile as it ripped through Moeen ...

India need more than a miracle to save the third Test against England at Southampton, with the visitors staring down the barrel at 112 for four at the end of Day 4, chasing England's distant target of 445. Miracles are often talked about in the game of cricket, with its rich and eventful history abundant with instances that can be so classified. However, miracles should not be expected to be showered upon you with a swish of a wan ...
