Sachin Tendulkar feared my pace: Shoaib Akhtar

God of cricket Sachin Tendulkar Friday declined to comment on controversial Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Akhtar's remark that he and team-mate Rahul Dravid did not have the ability to finish matches.

Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar said here Friday that people should read his autobiography first to ‘understand his remarks’ about Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid, and added that they are ‘world class cricketers’.

In the book, Akhtar has claimed that god of cricket Sachin Tendulkar and wall of Indian cricket Rahul Dravid, who have scored 56,000 between them in Tests and ODIs, lack the ability to finish matches.

Harbhajan Singh Said, "I don't know what Shoaib is up to and what made him say so. If you talk about Sachin Tendulkar, obviously I would say that he is not only the best cricketer in India but in the world as well.

Everyone will vouch that Sachin is the best starter and best finisher in cricket. That he is still going strong speaks volumes. Dravid has been amazing in the manner he has batted.

Tendulkar's childhood friend and former cricketer Vinod Kambli,said Sachin was never scared of Akhtar's bowling, as claimed in the Pakistan cricketer's book.

'Sachin was never scared of Shoaib or anyone. Look at the way he played his cricket and scored highest runs.
"Nobody is even close to him and nobody ever dares talk to him"
like that," Kambli said.
