Former India offspiner Harbhajan Singh has said that he found difficult to bowl to former South African great Jacques Kallis but it was Pakistan legend Younis Khan who made him with his sweep shot.
Harbhajan Singh was in a live session on Instagram with Team India batsman Rohit Sharma and was asked to name five troubling batsmen in which he named the legendary Pakistan batsman Younis Khan along with former Pakistan skipper Inzamam-ul-Haq.
“I found Jacques Kallis very difficult to bowl at in Test cricket. Then, I would say Mathew Hayden and number three would be Brian Lara,” said Harbhajan.
“Younis troubled me a lot. He used to sweep me all the time and used to make me cry. Inzamam is also someone I found hard to dismiss.”
Meanwhile, the cricketer was asked to reveal his top five off-spinners and in which he named doosra inventor Saqlain Mushtaq.
“My favourite off-spinner right now is Nathan Lyon. I loved watching Graeme Swann because of his consistent length. [Muttiah] Muralitharan would be number one on the list,” he said.
“Also, Saqlain was a world-class bowler and a match-winner. No one could pick his doosra at that time. He was someone who used to bowl between the 45th and 50th over and win the match for his team by picking one or two crucial wickets.”
