Virender Sehwag, the legendary Indian opening batsman, has chosen a former Pakistani captain as the best middle-order batsman in Asia, snubbing his former Indian teammates like Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman, and Sourav Ganguly.

The cricketer in question has amassed nearly 20,000 runs in international cricket for Pakistan, playing a total of 499 matches across different formats.

Sehwag, who holds the record for scoring two triple centuries in Test cricket for India, disregarded other prolific run-scorers like Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene from Sri Lanka.

Speaking on the show Breakfast with Champions, the 44-year-old Sehwag praised Inzamam-ul-Haq, the former captain of the Pakistan cricket team, and stated that, in his opinion, there was no greater middle-order batsman in Asia.

Virender Sehwag admires Inzamam-ul-Haq, calling him “Inzi bhai” and praising his friendly nature. Sehwag believes Inzamam-ul-Haq is the best middle-order batsman in Asia, even surpassing Sachin Tendulkar.

Inzamam-ul-Haq’s ability to score 80 runs in just 10 overs, would cause panic among opponentsa impresses Sehwag. He claims no other middle-order batsman surpasses Inzamam-ul-Haq. Sehwag remembers Inzamam-ul-Haq’s unwavering confidence, reassuring his teammates with words like “Don’t worry, we’ll do it.”
