Pakistan National Team former star fast bowler said that Rahul Dravid is Nightmare of his life, also said Sachin Tendulkar make him an International Star.
During the discussion with Wisdon India, Shoaib got wicket of Sachin Tendulkar of the very first ball of that match and said Sachin make me star and I am very thankful to him.
Former Fast and furious bowler Shoaib Akhtar also known as Rawalpindi Express debut in Test in 1997 and in ODI debut in 1998, but that test match was of 1999 against India where he got consecutive wickets of Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar where he got heights of fame in a night.
You should always know about the batsman mentality which shot he will play, I was known Sachin will play shot against me, he gives me space and I got benefit of that, I was known that I have to dodge him with swing even not with speed. Shoaib said, no doubt Sachin Tendulkar was a great batsman. He can play well to any player. When the day recognized with Sachin then he is the Nightmare for bowler.
But for me Rahul Dravid was a nightmare ever, he makes me bore. He is the first batsman from where I feel fear because when he come in cricket ground with bat I was known that I need atleast two session of fielding’s.
He said just Wasim Akram was the bowler who could handle him; I have not that ability to control him. I think he is the hardest batsmen ever for me in test matches because not only mentally but also physically he makes you tired. He is the Muhammad Ali (The Great Boxer) of Cricket.

Ii just these peoples in board since i opened my eyes, and the will stay ever. Pakistan cricket face many losses just because of these peoples.

I wish we have a true leader, just because me, Razzaq, Saqlain, Azhar and Afridi all of them might be the best cricketers.
