Lahore: Pakistan spin nice Saqlain Mushtaq mentioned that he charges Sachin Tendulkar’s 136 in the course of the 1999 Chennai Test higher than Virender Sehwag’s 309 in Multan 2004.
Saqlain, who was concerned in each matches, mentioned that Tendulkar’s knock got here towards a Pakistan staff that was properly ready and battling to win the match whereas Sehwag’s Multan knock got here on a primary day pitch.
“I rate the 130 odd runs that Sachin Tendulkar scored in the 2nd innings in the Chennai Test match ahead of the triple century scored by Virender Sehwag. Because we had gone with full preparation that time. It was a fight, there was a battle,” Saqlain mentioned on the Cricket Baaz speak present on YouTube.
“Here (Multan 2004), there was no fight or battle. And it was the 1st innings of the Test match, not the 2nd innings. It was the 1st innings, first day pitch, no preparation. Some good deeds of his parents or his own good deeds worked for him.”
Both innings are thought-about among the many best in the historical past of the Test rivalry between India and Pakistan. Tendulkar was preventing virtually a lone battle towards a star-studded Pakistan bowling assault that includes Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis and Saqlain as India have been trying to chase down 271 runs.
He got here in at quantity 4 and battled on for 273 balls. India have been on 254 when Tendulkar grew to become the seventh man to fall for the hosts after which the innings folded inside the subsequent six overs.
Sehwag’s 309 then again flattened Pakistan in the primary innings of the match itself in Multan and so they went on to lose by an innings and 52 runs.
