Currently, the Indian team is practicing hard in full oscillation for T20 World Cup. Despite some significant blows ahead of the T20 World Cup 2022, men in blue have some relieving points, as well, for this tournament. Skipper Rohit and his opening partner, vice-captain KL Rahul performed very well in the home series, and they might continue the great show. Virat Kohli returned to his peak just before the T20 World Cup.
But a one-star player who is getting praised from all world cricket fraternity. His performance was at its peak during recent India’s bilateral series, and it will be interesting to see how he will play on the bouncy pitch of Australia. South African legend Dale Steyn praised young versatile batter Suryakumar Yadav and said he is a 360-degree player. He could be the AB de Villiers of the Indian team. “He is a wonderful 360-degree player and reminds me of AB de Villiers. He could be India’s version of AB de Villiers, and with the red-hot form he’s in right now, he’s a player to watch out for this World Cup. He’s the kind of player that likes to use the pace of the ball. He likes to get in behind the square. There is a little extra pace in places like Perth, Melbourne, and all of these grounds. So, you can use the pace and hit on the fine leg, behind, and all along the carpet. And he’s also outstanding when standing still and getting off the back foot.” Said, Dale Steyn

“He has played some fantastic back foot cover drives, and some beautiful cover drives off the front foot too. So, he’s an all-around player, and it’s in Australia, where the wickets are so good, they are batter friendly. You can also get away when a bowler tries to bowl full, place the ball left, and use the pace of the ball well, given some room,” Steyn added.
The sky had hit three half-centuries in the home series against Australia. Recently, a practice match against Western Australia in Perth, he played a blistering knock 53 runs in just 35 balls.
