Facing former South African bowler Morne Morkel at his peak was the stuff of nightmares for many batsmen around the world. But according to the Proteas pacer himself, he was in complete awe of Indian legend Sachin and felt paralysed before bowling to him in the 2006 series.

Morkel had made his debut in that series and he still remembers how his hands froze at the thought of bowling to the Little Master.

“I’ll tell you what. When I made my debut in 2006… I bowled my first over to Sachin. I remember Polly (Shaun Pollock) game me the ball and I felt paralysed. I thought ok ‘I am going to have to bowl this ball,” he said on a Star Sports’ Cricket Live show.

Sachin was simply sensational while touring South Africa, scoring six centuries in total.
