“To be honest, it’s Inzamam-ul-Haq. See my action is very complicated unlike Bret Lee’s but I could not bowl him out even once in the nets in 10 years. I think he could read the ball a second faster than others,”

the 44-year old Shoaib said.

He also praised former New Zealand cricketer Martin Crowe and former India batsman Rahul Dravid. “To be honest, it’s Inzamam-ul-Haq. See my action is very complicated unlike Bret Lee’s but I could not bowl him out even once in the nets in 10 years. I think he could read the ball a second faster than others,” he said.

Shoaib took 444 wickets in 224 matches in international cricket.
