Twenty four  hours after claiming that he saw Sachin Tendulkar's legs trembling while facing Shoaib Akhtar, Shahid Afridi has now said that he did not intend to question Tendulkar's greatness and was only talking about one incident. "I am not denying what I have said.

I have seen that Tendulkar was not at all comfortable against Shoaib in Kolkata Test in 1999. It was Shoaib's first tour of India and he bowled out Sachin without giving him a chance to open his account," Afridi told PTI-Bhasha.

"Shoaib was in full form on that tour and had tremendous speed. He terrorised all the batsmen in the world at that time.  "But this was only one incident. He never spared Shoaib after that. We all have seen what happened in 2003 World Cup," he added.
