Whereas Lee has all the time regarded Tendulkar because the hardest batter he has ever confronted, there may be one other Indian participant he holds in excessive regard: Sachin’s ODI opening associate, Virender Sehwag.
Virender Sehwag Was A Swashbuckling Batter: Brett Lee
“You consider the phrase merciless. You consider the phrase swashbuckling. Consider the world as unpredictable, I consider none apart from Virender Sehwag. He performed with a smile on his face, with intent… the kind of man that will fairly possible wish to hit the primary ball of a Take a look at match for six… and he has carried out it. He’s a man that’s so onerous to bowl to as a result of as I discussed, of the unpredictability.
You’ll bowl that stunning line and size considering I’ve acquired him… ball shaping away. And that large smile, Sehwag would go BANG, hit you over cowl for six,” Lee mentioned on his YouTube channel ‘Brett Lee TV’.
“The man that seemed a little bit bit like Sachin Tendulkar when he was batting. And I believed ‘right here we go once more. One other Sachin Tendulkar. If one wasn’t sufficient, we’ve acquired one other one and he’s opening the batting’. We within the Australian group had a ploy for Sehwag and even begin the Take a look at match with a 3rd man, making an attempt to suck him in to hit one down there. We tried that in an ODI match sooner or later and he wacked it… completely nailed it out of the bottom.
I simply thought ‘this man is just too good’. And he would provide you with that cheeky little wink. One of the best factor about Sehwag was that he was a personality. He cherished taking part in cricket and people little battle scars in opposition to the bowler. He acquired the power to make folks get hooked on to seats,” added Lee.
