New Delhi. Former India coach Ravi Shastri is surprised by the fireworks of Suryakumar Yadav. The former all-rounder said that he is one of the best T20 players in the world and plays like AB de Villiers. In the year 2022, Surya made headlines in the shortest format of the game, hitting some of the finest strokes that very few had had the chance to see before.
He is one of the best players in the world, Ravi Shastri told Prime Video after India’s second match against New Zealand. He has all-round skills and is a dangerous player. If he plays 30-40 balls, he will win you matches. He plays very much like AB de Villiers. When AB played one of those special innings, he blew the opposition away and Suryakumar Yadav can do the same.
Shastri also talked about Surya’s ODI form when he was told about the batsman’s impressive returns in the longer format of the white-ball game.
He further said, if you look at the law of numbers and averages, he is bound to have an innings like that. But if he crosses the 15-20 mark, he makes it count as he has shown in his last few innings. Therefore, he supports his ability and attacking instincts.
