Mumbai: Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly on Saturday, made light of former Pakistani speedster Shoaib Akhtar's claim in his autobiography that Sachin Tendulkar was uncomfortable against his pace in the Faisalabad Test in 2006.
"I don't think even my daughter will believe that Sachin was scared of fast bowlers. You don't get 100 centuries, he is almost there (99 international centuries), and play for 20 years being scared of fast bowlers. You have good form and bad form, but that does not signify you cannot play fast bowlers," Ganguly told reporters here at a promotional event.
He said the controversy surrounding Shoaib's autobiography "Controversially Yours" has not come as a surprise as it has happened before with ex-cricketers penning their books with misleading anecdotes.
