Akhtar angers Sachin, Dravid
The bad boy of Pakistan cricket speedster Shoaib Akhtar made some truly tall claims in an autobiography - Controversially Yours - questioning the abilities of two of the greatest batsmen in the game's history, India's Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid.
''....Vivian Richards, Ricky Ponting, Brian Lara and the likes of them are great batsmen who dominated with the bat and were truly match-winners. Initially, when I bowled against Sachin, I found these qualities missing. He might have had more runs and records, he lacked the ability to finish the game,'' he said in the book.
