Wahab Riaz has said that he would try to dismiss Suryakumar Yadav if he had to bowl him either get out or take the attack to the opposition bowler as well. However, Yadav has an exceptional record in T20I cricket, having scored 1408 runs at an outstanding strike rate of 180.97 in 42 matches so far as well. He plays aggressively and can play shots all around the park also.
During an interaction with News24 Sports, Riaz said: “Such a player either gives you his wicket or attacks you. So you have the chance of both things. I will try to get him out, the rest will depend on the match. As a bowler, you need to know that if he is a 360-degree player, where you can trap him. Every player has a weakness and Surya also gets stuck somewhere or the other. If you bowl around the off-stump, on the fourth or fifth stump, it is normal that every batter struggles.”
Although Yadav has a stunning record, he has struggled a little against Pakistan. He has also managed just 57 runs at a poor strike rate of 123.91 in four innings against them as well.
“He is a good bowler, he has good skills, he has the swing and is a mature bowler. He knows when to bring the ball in and when to take it away. He bowls good line and length, so he is a good prospect for India. What can I tell India about where they can improve? India are one of the best teams, they have proved that everywhere. But for any team to click in any tournament, they need to have three to four players performing continuously,” Wahab Riaz concluded.
