Sehwag like a terrorist when he gets going: Sadiq
Kolkata: Former Pakistan opener Sadiq Mohammad Tuesday likened the batting of Virender Sehwag to a "terrorist", saying it was tough to stop the dashing batsman when he gets going.
"When Sehwag starts batting, he looks like a terrorist. With due respect to my words, it is very hard to stop him when he gets going," said Sadiq at the Eden Gardens here.
He is in India as a goodwill ambassador for the bilateral series between India and Pakistan.
Sadiq was also all praises for current Pakistan opener Nasir Jamshed saying he had the capability to play long innings.
"Jamshed is technically sound and can play longer innings which makes him dangerous. If he settles down, he tries to carry his bat through making life easier for the other batsmen," he said.
Comparing Sehwag and Jamshed, he chose his compatriot over the Indian.
"Sehwag takes a lot of chances. There are 25 percent chances of him getting out early. But if Jamshed settles down, it is difficult to get him out," added Mohammad.
