Karachi: Pakistan's tainted pace bowler Mohammad Asif described former India stars Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman as technically the best batsmen he bowled to in his roller-coaster career.

Asif's career hit rock bottom in 2010 when he was banned for five years from the sport, and subsequently jailed for spot-fixing. "Dravid and Laxman were technically very good and could whip the ball from the off-stump to the onside flawlessly. It was a challenge bowling to them," Asif said.

Asif, who picked up 106 wickets in 23 Tests and was rated as one of the best new ball operators, said India's star batsman Virat Kohli reminded him of Dravid and Laxman.
