Many schooled Pandya about Khan’s achievements including his performance in the 2011 World Cup where he took 21 wickets in the tournament and finished as the joint highest wicket-taker along with Shahid Afridi.
“Despite being a bowler he has 53 gorgeous international sixes. He has smashed bowlers like Brett Lee, Shoaib Akhtar out of the park. He would have crushed your toe with an inswinging Yorker if u played him in his prime. He is a legend,” read one of the many comments on Pandya’s tweet.
