“Mujhe toh lag raha ye kisi aur planet se aaya hai (I think he is from some other planet). He is totally different from anybody else. The amount of runs he has scored. I mean he is the only batter to score 1000 runs T20I in 2022. He’s just a treat to watch and not just against Zimbabwe, against the top bowling attacks in the world.”
