Shoaib Akhtar names the most dangerous player he ever faced: It’s not an Indian player!

Former Pakistani pacer, Shoaib Akhtar was undoubtedly the most lethal bowler ever cricket has got. He was one of the fastest bowlers ever with his record of bowling at 161.3 still remains unbroken. He used to bowl at an average of 150 during his days which is unachievable for many pace bowlers.

Upon being asked who was the most dangerous batsman Shoaib Akhtar has ever faced in his career, the Rawalpindi Express took the name of former Australian wicketkeeper-batsman Adam Gilchrist.
