Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar's rivalry with former India opener Virender Sehwag is well known around the cricketing world. For many years, the battle between these two former greats of the game has entertained their fans whenever India have played against arch-rivals Pakistan.
However, the foes have now turned into friends with Akhtar describing Sehwag - once his fierce enemy as his biggest friend today. Both the players are part of Sachin Tendulkar's Blasters team in the three-match Cricket All-Stars T20 league played in the United States of America.
Tendulkar and Australian cricket icon Shane Warne are leading 28 of the world's greatest cricketers for the inaugural Cricket All Stars series in New York, Houston and Los Angeles this month.
