“Some batters in the world love sledging and get pump up by that. So I never sledge him because he gets pump up by that. I always tell my bowlers to get rid of him as early as possible,” Rahim told Star Sports.

“Whenever I play against him, he always tries to sledge me every time I go in to bat because he is a really competitive guy and he doesn’t want to lose any cricket match. I really love that rivalry with him and the challenge that comes with facing him and India,” Rahim added.
