“He (Rahul Dravid) wanted to speak with me after that game because we collided. Previously, Mohammed Kaif… When I ran in, he (Kaif) moved away just as I was about to deliver the ball. I didn’t say anything to him, but I was furious. So I got him out first, and then Yuvi. We came very close to winning that game “Shoaib Akhtar stated in a video posted on social media by Star Sports.

“Rahul Dravid collided with me. We collided, and I told him to run on his side while I ran on mine. So Rahul Dravid became enraged. ‘Rahul, are you aggressive?’ I asked. How? I’m aware that the climate is changing, but I had no idea tu bhi lad sakta hai?’ Rahul is a gentleman, and this is a one-time occurrence. But I bowled really fast during that spell. I made certain that I had an impact on India following the 2003 World Cup.
