In reference to the India star, Ricky Ponting said, “Bit Like AB de Villiers Did When He Was Actually Prime.”

Ricky Ponting, who is widely regarded as one of the best cricketers of all time, has been effusive in his praise for Suryakumar Yadav, adding that the Indian batsman boasts a 360-degree game, just like the South African prodigy AB de Villiers.

Ricky Ponting, who is widely regarded as one of the best cricketers of all time, has been effusive in his praise for Suryakumar Yadav, adding that the Indian batsman boasts a 360-degree game, just like the South African prodigy AB de Villiers.
In the Indian batting order, Ponting felt that Yadav should be batting at number four. “Surya (Yadav) scores 360 degrees around the ground, which is similar to what an AB de Villiers did when he was in his true prime,” the commentator said. The ramps over the keeper’s head, the lap shots, and the late cuts are all examples of this. Ponting stated in the most recent episode of The ICC Review that Warner possesses the ability to knock the ball down the ground.

“He hits exceptionally well over the leg side, flicks to deep backward square particularly well, and he is a good player of both fast bowling and spin bowling.” [Cricket] “He is a good player of fast bowling and is a strong player of spin bowling.” Yadav, who is 31 years old, has played in 23 T20 matches and has amassed 672 runs while maintaining a strike rate of 175.45. He is now ranked No. 2 in the ICC T20 Batter Rankings, trailing only the captain of Pakistan’s team, Babar Azam.

Ponting, who witnessed Yadav during his formative years with the Mumbai Indians, commented that “He’s someone that’s going to find himself in their team, not just their squad.” Ponting was able to get a close look at Yadav during those years. “He’s a very, very exciting player,” Ponting remarked.

I have a feeling that he will be playing for them in the Twenty20 World Cup. And if he is on that team, then I believe that every fan in Australia is going to get a chance to see a guy who is extremely talented.

“He’s such a confident person. He has confidence in himself, and he will never back down from a challenge or any situation that may come up when he is playing a game. I get the impression that he believes he can emerge victorious from that circumstance and, as a result, lead his team to victory in the game. When the former Australian captain was asked whether Yadav would make it into India’s best XI, he responded that Yadav had “performed better than anybody else in the Indian squad over the previous couple of series” and that he should be placed at the top of the batting order.

“I believe that it should be considered one of the top four. “I said continue with him (Virat Kohli) in his regular slot, which has been number three,” recalled Ponting, who captained his team to victory in the World Cup on two separate occasions.

“It comes down to one, two, or four for Surya. I believe that he is capable of starting, but I also believe that he is probably, you know, if you could maybe just keep him away from the new ball, let him manage the middle part of the game outside of the Powerplay, through in the middle, and if he’s in at the end, you know what can happen.” In the last overs of a Twenty20 international match, Yadav’s strike rate climbs to a staggering 258.82. He has scored 88 runs in just 34 balls, with 15 of those deliveries going for four boundaries.
