No matter how great a batsman or bowler one is, at some point against a certain batsman or bowler they have always suffocated. Sometimes a pace attack, a spin or rather a mere medium pace bowling may instill fear in a batsman. The story can be similar on the other side too. But we fans have no complaints as we witness epic battles in 22 yards.
All over this years, we have witnessed some great faceoffs on the field and here we list for you the best five of them. Get ready and tighten your seatbelts!
1. Sachin vs Warne
The best batsman in the world versus the best bowler and the result is more than what we want. Sachin Tendulkar has ripped off many bowling attacks but millions went speechless to witness the epic Warne and Sachin clash. It was 1988 when Australia toured India for tests and a triangular series. Much to everyone’s surprise Sachin with his brilliant strokeplay destroyed Warne’s bowling. Sachin smashed his first double century in first-class cricket and Warne`s figures read 16-1-111-0. In the test series that followed Warne won the first one as he dismissed Sachin in the third ball of the first test but the next two saw Sachin scoring. The story continued in Sharjah. Sachin scored 80,143 & 134. He won the man of the series award and Warne still says that Sachin’s sixes are a nightmare for him. Sachin has dominated Warne throughout his career both outside and in India!
