In the latest episode of the Nadir Ali Podcast, Shehzad said that India has bowlers like Ravichandran Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja but they are not dangerous in his opinion.

Moreover, Ahmed Shehzad drew comparison with the Pakistan team which has historically produced world-class fast bowlers.

“No disrespect to them. But there hasn’t been any threatening bowler from India that the opposition batter is scared to play him. They have good bowlers like Bumrah, Jadeja and Ashwin, but there has not been a dangerous bowler as such. Their batters are dangerous,” Shehzad said on the podcast.

Dangerous Bowler Ahmed Shehzad Faced

When asked about the most dangerous bowler he has faced, Shahzad picked legendary pacer Shoaib Akhtar and recalled his experiences facing Akhtar in the nets. He explained how disciplined Akhtar’s bowling was and how he made sure that no batters were ever injured.

“I can’t recollect any other bowler apart from Shoaib Akhtar. When I was new to the team, he was already the Shoaib Akhtar. So I faced six-eight balls from a reverse-swinging old ball against Akhtar.”

“He had 2 great qualities. First, he never bowled no-balls in the nets. Second, he never bowled unnecessary bouncers to the batters in the nets. He knew the batter would get hurt,” he added
