Karachi: Former Pakistan spinner Sakhlian Mushtaq said bowling against Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid was the biggest challenge he faced in his career. Sakhlian said on Nadir Ali’s podcast that both have been dismissed several times but it was not easy.
I have dismissed Sachin and Dravid many times, but I have waited patiently for a long time. Because tigers cannot be caught like mice. I have thought for hours about how to get them both out. I have not been able to get both of them out despite bowling 20 overs often. It is not an easy task to get both of them out who are world class batsmen.

Only if you think carefully, something will find a way. Similarly, you should be patient and keep trying. Sakhlian also said that the former Indian batsman Ajay Jadeja, who bowled well against Sachin, Dravid, Ganguly and Azharuddin, was really afraid of him.
Jadeja’s face would turn pale when he saw me coming to bowl. I knew he wouldn’t survive mine. He was always out of my balls. But Sachin, Ganguly, Dravid and Azhar were all dangerous batsmen, Skhlian said. Sakhlian has dismissed Jadeja six times in ODIs. In the 1997 ODI series, Jadeja was dismissed by Sakhlian three times in a row.
