“One of my favourite players these days, in this shorter format” – Wasim Akram on Suryakumar Yadav
Pakistan legend Wasim Akram recently showered praise on Suryakumar Yadav, calling him one of his favourite players at present. The right-handed batter is currently the highest-ranked Indian batter in the ICC T20I Ranking. He is placed second in the charts after Pakistan’s Babar Azam.
“Of course, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli are there, but one of my favourite players these days, in this shorter format is Suryakumar Yadav. He has been phenomenal, Akram said on Star Sports.
“I saw him the first year when he had joined the Kolkata Knight Riders and he played a couple of games batting at No. 7 and 8. And a couple of shots he played – the one that he picks from the middle of his bat towards fine leg – that’s an unusual and difficult shot to muster,” he added.
