Just In: Ahead of the Pak-Ind clash, Former Pakistan all-rounder Wasim Akram was quizzed to pick an Indian Batter that could damage Pakistan. Instead of naming Kohli, Sharma, or Rahul, Wasim Akram has picked an entirely totally different India batter, “Suryakumar Yadav”.
Wasim Akram, who coached Suryakumar back at the Kolkata Knight Riders camp, said, “Of course, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and KL Rahul are there, but one of my favorite players these days, in this shorter format is Suryakumar Yadav. He has been exceptional.”
“I saw him the first year when he 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.”
