Pradeep Sangwan never bothered to listen to my advice: Manoj Prabhakar

Prabhakar is sad that no one could ever convince Sangwan that merely possessing muscular and broad shoulders doesn't increase the pace in one's deliveries. Prabhakar said he was also surprised at the way a talented pacer like Sangwan spoiled himself.
