The whole world is at a standstill due to the corono virus outbreak. In such a situation, current and former cricketers are interacting with fans on social media as sports activities all over the world have either been postponed or canceled. Meanwhile, former Australia captain Ricky Ponting has described one over of former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar as the fastest over of his career that he faced.
Ponting posted a video on Twitter, in which he said, “The fastest over thrown by Flintoff, which I faced. Then there is Shoaib Akhtar, whom I faced the fastest over in my career so far. ‘
Ponting has also mentioned Justin Langer in his tweet. He had previously stated that Andrew Flintoff’s magical over was the ‘best over’ during the Ashes Test 2005 against England at Edgbaston, which he faced during his playing days. England had a thrilling two-run win in that match.
