Veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh heaped high praises on Suryakumar Yadav after his amazing batting display in Sri Lanka. Harbhajan believes Suryakumar Yadav is the most complete batsman after Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.
Suryakumar Yadav was knocking on the door of national selectors for a long time and after a sensational IPL season in 2020, the selectors gave him a national call-up for the series against England earlier this year. He made his international debut in a fine fashion in a T20I against England with a fiery fifty.
When a second-string Indian team was announced for the tour of Sri Lanka, everyone expected Suryakumar to grab the opportunity with both hands. And he did the same. He enjoyed a good ODI series and bagged the man of the series award. He stretched his good form in the T20I series as well, where he hit a fine fifty in the series opener on Sunday to help his team win the match by 38 runs.
Harbhajan talked of Suryakumar Yadav in high regard while comparing him with India’s dynamic duo of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.
“I have followed Suryakumar Yadav for years now. When I was captaining the Mumbai Indians, he was a young boy and in today’s time, after Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, he is the most complete player in terms of batting,” Harbhajan said on Sports Tak.
Bhajji believes SKY is the best player of spin in India and that makes him a must in all the Indian squads.
“Over the years, I have seen him grow as a player. He is a phenomenal batsman, who can play fast bowling. He has plenty of time and in terms of playing spin, you will not find a better batsman in India in today’s time. So, in my opinion, Suryakumar is a must whether it’s World Cup squad, one-day squad, T20I or Test squad,” Harbhajan added.
