Former cricketer Irfan Pathan has given a big reaction to the comparison between Suryakumar Yadav and AB de Villiers. He has said that both the players cannot be compared but AB de Villiers is better than Suryakumar Yadav because he has more power. At the same time, he also praised Jos Buttler a lot.
Suryakumar Yadav, the main batsman of the Indian team, is in tremendous form at the moment. Suryakumar Yadav is being called 360 degree player for his unique shots. This tag was also in the name of AB de Villiers who was famous for such shots. For this reason Suryakumar Yadav started being compared with AB de Villiers.
During a conversation on Star Sports, Irfan Pathan reacted to Suryakumar Yadav. “It is very difficult to draw comparisons between the two players. You can’t compare him with AB de Villiers because I think AB de Villiers has more power. He was far ahead of Suryakumar Yadav in terms of hitting long off or over the covers. If we talk about Jos Buttler, he also has a lot of power. Although the range of Suryakumar Yadav is quite large. He can also play the cut shot, can hit over the covers, can play in the mid-wicket and can also sweep.
Let us tell you that earlier Suryakumar Yadav also gave a big reaction on being compared with AB de Villiers. He had said that there is only one 360 degree player in the world and I am just trying to play like him. According to Suryakumar Yadav, there is no one like AB de Villiers.
