Harbhajan recalls how Younis' technique frustrated him

Veteran Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh has named champion batsman Younis Khan as one of the toughest batters to bowl to. Younis reigns as Pakistan’s all-time leading run-getter in Test cricket and his astounding record against spinners epitomizes his immense caliber.

Always ready to employ the sweep shot to nullify any amount of turn found by a spinner, Younis stood tall against slow bowlers and punished them fervently. His prolific record against India also exemplifies his class as Harbhajan ranked him alongside a group of elite cricketers including Jacques Kallis, Matthew Hayden and Brian Lara, who always troubled him.

“I had a lot of trouble while bowling to Younis. He used to sweep me every time I bowled to him and I used to be in tears,” Harbhajan told Indian batsman Rohit Sharma in an Instagram live session.
