In front of Biru, Shoaib Akhtar lost his strength
We would like to inform you that in the Multan Test match played in March 2004, Virender Sehwag told Shoaib Akhtar that ‘Baap-Baap Hai, Beta-Pun Hai’. In this match, Virender Sehwag played a historic 309-run innings against Pakistan, for which Biru was also called the Sultan of Multan. In 2004, during a Test match against Pakistan in Multan, Shoaib Akhtar kept throwing bouncers at him and provoked him to play pool shots. Sehwag also had trouble playing this shot.
‘Give dad a bouncer if you have the guts’
While Akhtar was constantly commenting, Biru said to Akhtar, ‘Tell the non-striker to hook. At that time Sachin Tendulkar was standing on non-strike. After that, Shoaib Akhtar hit four to Sachin. Biru then went to Akhtar and said, ‘Father is father and son is son’.
Biru said, are you bowling or begging?
Sehwag further said about this Test match that Shoaib Akhtar was deliberately trying to annoy him after every ball, saying, ‘See the foursome, see the foursomes’. When Shoaib repeatedly said this, Sehwag also responded well and said to Akhtar, “Are you bowling or begging.” At the same time, after replying with his tongue, Sehwag also responded to Akhtar’s statement by hitting four with the bat.
