The world’s fastest bowler Shoaib Akhtar has come out and spilled the name of the player he liked a contest with and hitting him the most. Not surprisingly it happens to be the beefy Australian left-hander Matthew Hayden. The two have had many fights in the past or let’s say duels, the crowds loved it totally. He has also had many duels with the great Sachin Tendulkar, who can forget Sachin’s stumps sent for a walk of the first ball and a stunned silence at the Eden Gardens!

Shoaib Akhtar in a tweet of his revealed the name, he is the former Australian opener, Matthew Hayden. The Rawalpindi Express posted on Twitter that he has hurt 19 batsmen in total but enjoyed it only once – when he hit Hayden. He said, “It was Matthew Hayden I wanted to hit badly during my playing days & I did that many times during test & practice games&now we r best mates.”

That’s quite honest of the Rawalpindi pacer!

May be just in an attempt to cover it up as they are colleagues now as a part of the Star Sports broadcasting team, he tweeted again. His tweet read, “But now we are best of friends now & I think he’s 1 of the most generous & kind human being I ever met is Matthew Hayden.”

The tweet that is second is the one that has been posted with the intention of calming everything. Shoaib Akhtar is currently acting in a Pakistani serial alongside Wasim Akram as well. The serial is aired in Pakistan.
