“If one Sachin wasn’t enough, we’ve got another”- Brett Lee praises Virender Sehwag

Brett Lee and Virender Sehwag

Former Australia pacer Brett Lee has praised Virender Sehwag and said that he was one of the hardest batter to bowl to. Lee was one of the fastest bowlers in the cricket history and had consistently bowled at 150 kmph or faster. His duels with Sachin Tendulkar, Jacques Kallis, Brian Lara, and Sehwag are quite popular. He considered Tendulkar the toughest batter to bowl to but Sehwag also comes to one of the toughest he had bowled to.

“The guy that looked a little bit like Sachin Tendulkar when he was batting. And I thought ‘here we go again. Another Sachin Tendulkar. If one wasn’t enough, we’ve got another one and he is opening the batting’. We in the Australian team had a ploy for Sehwag and even start the Test match with a third man, trying to suck him in to hit one down there. We tried that in an ODI match one day and he wacked it… he absolutely nailed it out of the ground. I just thought ‘this guy is too good’. And he would give you that cheeky little wink. The best thing about Sehwag was that he was a character. ” Lee said on his YouTube channel.

“You think of the word cruel. You think of the word swashbuckling. Think of the world unpredictable, I think of none other than Virender Sehwag. He played with a smile on his face, with intent… the type of guy that would quite likely want to hit the first ball of a Test match for six… and he has done it. He is a guy that is so hard to bowl to because, as I mentioned, the unpredictability. You would bowl that beautiful line and length, thinking, I’ve got him… ball shaping away. And that big smile, Sehwag would go bang, hit you over cover for six,” he added.
