As long as Sachin was on the field, he did not think he would win: Waqar
Waqar said in The Greatest Revelatory Podcast, “We took a new ball and Nayan Mongia hit it in the air on the first ball. I think he was in a hurry or I don’t know what was going on in his mind. He said That the game was over and they won that game, and they got a little complacency, especially Nayan Mongia. Once he was out, we were still thinking, ‘This is not going to happen, we can make this match You are not going to win. As long as there is Sachin, it will not happen. “
Sachin was the biggest difficulty after Mongia’s dismissal
Mongia shared a 136-run partnership for the sixth wicket with Sachin in the second innings. After Mongia’s dismissal, Sachin stood between Pakistan and victory. Waqar said, “To be honest, I had absolutely no idea what Sachin was thinking at the time. He still had four wickets left and needed 16 runs.”
Sachin bat outside the world
He said, “The way he was batting, he was out of this world. Then in the very next over, I think, Sachin hit Sakaleen Mushtaq, a four in the air. After this four we said that Started that we will not let them score 15-16 runs. That was also necessary. “
Best of 1999 in Test match so far
The former fast bowler said, “Then Saqlain dominated them all. It was difficult for him to save the match, or he was losing wickets due to getting hit out. I think he lost all four wickets in five or six overs. I would like to say that one of the best tests I have seen is one that I played and I watched. “
