Former Pakistan Speedstar Shoiab Akhtar denies the words said by Indian most destructive Opener Sehwag during the match ‘baap baap hota hai’ – Shoiab said if Sehwag said any of these words – there was no chance after I would have let him go so easily –
While in a conversation with Bollywood actor Shahrukh Khan, Virender Sehwag revealed this incident while batting along with Sachin Tendulkar who was at the non-striker end, while Sehwag said to Shoaib who was sledging him – as Sehwag said tries to bowl some short length to Sachin Tendulkar if you can – Here was that incident during Group stage match of 2003 between India and Pakistan
” ‘Woh tera baap khada hai wo non-striking end pe, uss ko bol woh mar ke dikhayega.’ Non-striker end pe Tendulkar tha. Next over mai jab usne Tendulkar ko bouncer mara toh usne chakka mara, maine kaha beta beta hota hai aur baap baap hota hai,” Sehwag told Shahrukh Khan.
It means ‘that’s your father at the non Striker end tell him to hit you’ and when Shoiab in next over bowls the short length ball to Sachin he smashed it for Six and Sehwag replied now you understand the variation between greatest and legendary batsman.

Bowling to Sachin Tendulkar was not a big deal for me –
“I heard Sachin was the god. I said this is a god? Iss ki khairiyat nahi. He didn’t recognise me, and I didn’t recognise him. He was in his own attitude and I was in my attitude. But I wanted to get him out on the first ball and that happened,” Shoaib Akhtar said
