Former Australia spinner Brad Hogg has pointed out how Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar’s battles with Glenn McGrath and Shoaib Akhtar had their own subtle differences.
In a Twitter Q&A session with fans, Hogg was met with the question from a user on Tendulkar’s famous battles with the star fast bowlers.
“Sachin vs McGrath or Sachin vs Akhtar Which one is your favourite rivalry ? #Hoggytime,” the user asked.
Responding to the question, Hogg wrote, “Sachin v McGrath a war of attrition. McGrath trying to win the patience game, you are in for the long haul. Sachin v Akhtar more erratic, with Akhtar trying to blast him out with sheer pace + it’s India v Pak, which adds a little more spice to the contest.”
