New Delhi: In a scathing attack on his inconsistent batting form during the Indian Premier League, former Pakistan Test captain Wasim Akram has called Virender Sehwag a "No. 11 batsman." This is probably the worst compliment Sehwag has ever got in his career.
A former Kolkata Knight Riders bowling consultant, Akram has always been a Sehwag fan. At a time when selectors gave the former Indian Test batsman the cold shoulder, the Pakistani legend has always stood by Sehwag.
"He is one innings away from striking good form," Akram would always say. But to label him a "No. 11 batsman" only shows Akram's frustration at Sehwag's consistent failures for Delhi Daredevils.
