Ricky Ponting on Suryakumar Yadav: Anyone who sees the young India team batsman Suryakumar batting becomes a fan. They make shots around the field. He has the ability to stroke almost 360 degrees. Fans have been comparing him to former South African captain AB de Villiers for a long time. His hitting has exactly the same combination of feats and spontaneity seen in de Villiers. Now former Australia captain Ricky Ponting has also joined those who have said yes to SKY batting fans.

Ponting compared Suryakumar Yadav to AB de Villiers, saying that he too has the ability to play on all fours in the field like a great South African and should bat at number four for India in the T20 World Cup.

Said Ponting in the new episode of ‘ICC Review’, “Suriya (Yadav) has the ability to make shots all over the field like AB de Villiers used to do. He can play all kinds of shots, whether it’s a late cut or a shot through above the goalkeeper’s head, he can also hit the ground next to him.

Praising Suryakumar, the former Australia cricketer further said: “He makes very good shots on the side of the leg, especially his deep square leg moves, they are worth watching. He is a good spin and fast bowler.

Suryakumar has so far scored 672 runs in 23 T20 matches for India. He is second only to Pakistan’s Babar Azam in the ICC T20 batsman rankings. In the shorter format of the game, he is being considered as the trump card of the India team.

Asked what number Suryakumar should bat at in the Indian Playing XI, the former Australia captain said: “I think he should be in the top four. I don’t want him to open the innings. I think number four would be the most ideal for him.” “.

The T20 World Cup will be played in Australia starting on October 16 this year. India is placed in Group 2 and has to play its first match in this mega event against Arch Rivals Pakistan.
