Former Australia spinner Brad Hogg said legendary fast bowler Brett Lee was scarier to face than Pakistan speed demon Shoaib Akhtar.
Hogg’s comments come after he was asked whether he was more afraid to bat against Lee or Akhtar.
Since he never faced Akhtar, he chose Lee as the most frightening out the fast bowling duo, who have both bowled at speeds over 160 kph.
Faced Binga in the nets didn't face Akhtar in the nets. Scarier in the nets so Binga. 😂😂 https://t.co/pVwL4EXrHm
