Sehwag terms Inzamam-ul-Haq 'Asia's greatest middle-order batter'.

LAHORE -- Former Indian opener Virender Sehwag spoke highly of legendary Pakistan batter Inzamam-ul-Haq and termed him Asia's greatest middle-order batter.

Sehwag during an interview on a YouTube channel, said everyone heaps praise on Sachin Tendulkar's greatness but Inzamam was on the other level.

'Inzi Bhai was so sweet. Everyone talks about Tendulkar but I believe that Inzamam was the biggest middle-order batter in Asia,' he stated.

Virender Sehwag continued to laud Inzamam-ul-Haq by mentioning his ability to remain composed in tense run chases where his team needed around eight runs per over.

'Tendulkar was out of batters' league, he was above it. But, Inzamam was best in middle-order. I am talking about 2003-04 when an average of around eight was just an imagination. Teams used to panic in such situations but Inzamam at that time used to stay calm while scoring runs at an average of around eight,' he added.

Besides his orthodox batting skills, Inzamam-ul-Haq, one of his exceptional strength was his match-finishing abilities and he showcased them on multiple occasions by steering his side to glory after a tricky run chase.
