Rawalpindi/Kolkata/IBNS: Former Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Akhtar, who is known for his lethal bowling during his heyday, picked ex-Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly as one of the toughest batsmen he had faced in his career.

In a latest Instagram post, Shoaib said Ganguly, under whose captaincy the Rawalpindi Express had played in the Indian Premier League (IPL), was one of the toughest challenges he had faced in his illustrious career.

Shoaib said in the post, "I welcomed any opposition, because i was determined to see the battle through. One of my toughest opposition was the man himself @souravganguly. Not only a tough opposition but a great captain having played under his leadership for @kkriders."

During his IPL stint, Shoaib had played under Ganguly's captaincy for Kolkata Knight Riders.
