Virender Sehwag has narrated a hilarious incident involving Sachin Tendulkar and Shoaib Akhtar that left the former Pakistan fast bowler fearing for his international career

The social media exchanges between Virender Sehwag and Shoaib Akhtar make for an entertaining read for the users. Time and again they end up trolling each other on Twitter but Sehwag says it’s because the two gel really well  together and Akhtar is his closest friend among the Pakistan cricketers.

Sharing an anecdote from his  playing days, Sehwag revealed how during a function, Akhtar was left fearing for his career following an incident with batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar.

“We were at a function. Shoaib tried lifting Tendulkar who wasn’t light weight. However, in his attempt resulted in both Shoaib and Tendulkar taking a tumble. His (Akhtar’s) expression changed. I warned him how BCCI will now complain with the PCB about this incident involving their top player and you will be thrown out of the team. Your career is finished,” Sehwag told Ranveer Allahbadia on his YouTube channel TheRanveerShowHindi.

Sehwag continued, “He requested Sachin to keep the incident to himself and not complain while apologising. Even today whenever Sachin paaji and I meet, we recall that incident.”
