'Suryakumar Yadav will leave everyone behind' - Danish Kaneria heaps praise on Suryakumar Yadav


The former Pakistani leg-spinner Danish Kaneria has come up with a bold statement that people will forget the modern-day giants Virat Kohli and Babar Azam after witnessing Suryakumar Yadav's innovative batting in the limited-overs format.

Danish Kaneria's statement came up after the Indian batter played a swashbuckling knock of 69 runs off 36 balls against Australia in the series decider game at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on last Sunday.

Moreover, India's top-ranked T20I batter has slammed 115 runs in the three-match series against Australia where he played at a strike rate of well around 190s.

After witnessing his recent knock against Australia, Danish Kaneria heaped praises on the 32-year-old on his Youtube channel and said, "I have been saying this for a while now, Suryakumar Yadav is one of the best. With his 360-degree repertoire, I'd say that the sky is high. The way he bats, it's like he is announcing himself. He was outstanding in the third T20I."

He has a different way of playing: Danish Kaneria

Following that, the former Pakistani leggie also said, "He has a different way of playing and he is surely going to be a very big player. The way he bats, he will make people forget all the other batting greats.

Yes, Kohli will score a lot of runs and Babar will be very successful, but Yadav will leave everyone behind. A lot of people have been saying that Virat Kohli is Adam Zampa's bunny. But Kohli took him to the cleaners this time. He was exceptional."

Danish Kaneria applauded Virat Kohli for his contribution in the third and final T20I against Australia and also for guiding Suryakumar Yadav well throughout the end.

"Kohli guided Yadav well, and there was a clear understanding between them. The Australian bowlers had no answers against these two batters. If they continue to bat this way, India will surely overpower every team in the T20 World Cup," he further added.
