Multan’s Sultan said, ‘I did not answer him at that time, because it was my first match and I myself was nervous. There 20 to 25 thousand spectators came to watch the match. I had never even imagined playing a match in front of so many spectators. But when my place in the team was confirmed and I went to Pakistan in 2004, I retaliated and avenged him through a triple century in Multan. Whenever I used to play against Pakistan, my hair would automatically go up and I always did well against them at the best average.
