Who is the biggest threat to Pakistan?,
Ahead of the blockbuster match, former Pakistan captain and great fast bowler Wasim Akram was asked to pick a player from the Indian team who can really hurt Pakistan. With Rohit, Kohli and KL Rahul in the squad, Akram named Suryakumar Yadav as one of his favorite players. That is, he is considering Surya as the biggest threat to Pakistan.
Wasim was surprised by Surya’s batting
Suryakumar made his debut in the Indian team in March 2021 and has since become a prominent part of the Indian batting line-up. Akram worked with Suryakumar in Kolkata Knight Riders. Recalling the old era, he told that some shots of Suryakumar had surprised him. He said- Of course, there is Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli, but one of my favorite players these days is A Suryakumar Yadav. He’s been superb. I saw him the first year when he joined Kolkata Knight Riders.
This shot of Surya was praised
Wasim, who showed the stars of the day with his balls to the legends of the world, said, “In Riders, he played a few games batting at number 7 and 8. He played a few shots (which he takes from the middle of his bat towards fine leg). It is an unusual and difficult shot (scoop shot). In his international career, Suryakumar has played in 23 T20s. He has scored 5 fifties and a century during this period.
Akram considers Suryakumar a threat not only to Pakistan, but to every team in the world. Akram said, ‘Ever since he came to the Indian team, he has grown even more. I think he is a very dangerous player against spin or fast bowlers and he is really a 360-degree player.
