Former Team India cricketer Virender Sehwag had troubled the bowlers with his bat and things. Sehwag could face any bowler fearlessly. In 2004, Team India traveled to Pakistan under the leadership of Rahul Dravid. Team India won the historic three-match Test series 2-1, their first Test in Multan. Sehwag scored 309 in Multan while India won the match by an innings and 52 runs. Sehwag was called the Sultan of Multan after these innings. Sehwag harassed Pakistan’s Shoaib Akhtar in the match. Former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar shared anecdote between Sehwag and Shoaib in the match, which is quite funny.

Manjrekar said, “There are many funny anecdotes in cricket and one such anecdote is the 2004 Multan Test between India and Pakistan. Sehwag hit a triple century. During this innings of Sehwag, Shoaib Akhtar became very upset and then started to throw the bouncer ball constantly. Sehwag then scored over 200, and every bouncer was going to duck the ball. Akhtar went bouncer bowling and Sehwag went to duck him. To motivate Sehwag, you have scored over 200 and I am bowling such a bouncer, show at least one pull shot, ”Akhtar said.
