Kolkata, Jan 2: Former Pakistan opener Sadiq Mohammad on Tuesday compared Team India's dashing opener Virender Sehwag to a terrorist, when he gets going.

The former Pakistan cricketer said it is very hard for a bowler to get rid of him when he is going for big shots.

Sehwag bats like a 'terrorist': Sadiq

"When Sehwag starts batting, he looks like a terrorist. With due respect to my words, it is very hard to stop him when he gets going," said Sadiq ahead of the second ODI at Eden Gardens.

The cricketer who is in the city as a goodwill ambassador for the bilateral series also picked Nasir Jamshed over the dangerous Virender Sehwag when asked about the openers.

Praising Pakistan opener, Sadiq said "Jamshed is technically sound and can play longer innings which makes him dangerous. If he settles down, he tries to carry his bat through making life easier for the other batsmen."

"Sehwag takes a lot of chances. There are 25 percent chances of him getting out early. But if Jamshed settles down, it is difficult to get him out," added Mohammad.
