Nannes is the fastest bowler I ever faced, says SehwagApril 30th, 2009 - 11:33 pm ICT by IANS
Centurion, April 30 (IANS) Delhi Daredevils captain Virender Sehwag said his teammate and Victorian tearaway Dirk Nanes is the fastest bowler he has ever faced.
Nanes, who won his first Man of the Match award, gave away just 16 runs from four overs and bagged two wickets to stop Deccan Chargers’ four-match winning streak here Thursday.
Sehwag, who received five stitches on his hand during fielding, showered the Victorian with praises and said: “Nannes is a genuine fast bowler. I think he is the fastest I have ever faced.”
Nannes was humble in accepting the praise from his captain and said he was happy his efforts have helped Daredevils win.
“Very happy that we won today. I always try to swing the ball but pace always makes it difficult for the batsmen,” he said.
The five stitches have made Sehwag doubtful for Saturday’s match against Chennai Super Kings.
“Maybe I will be unavailable for the next game but will be back soon. We have a very good squad and will do well in the tournament,” said Sehwag.
