Legendary Pakistan pace bowler Shoaib Akhtar has picked former West Indies batsman Brian Lara as his favourite batsman of all time.
Lara achieved so much during his illustrious career and still holds the record for the highest score in Test cricket of 400 not out.
Having scored over 10,000 runs in both Tests and ODIs, Lara is without a doubt one of the best batsmen the West Indies has ever produced.

Akhtar bowled to many great players in his time, including the iconic Sachin Tendulkar, but he still opted for Lara as his favourite batsman during a question and answer session on Twitter.
