With the T20 World Cup on cards, everybody has their eyes tight on the high-profile event already. Starting from October 17 in the UAE and Oman, the World Cup excitement of the cricket onlookers has reached a crescendo. India, who finished as the semifinalist in the last edition. is highly anticipated to be the strong contender and the chatter about players making an impact in the marquee event just never ends. The former Australia spinner Brad Hogg has expressed his opinions on a player he thinks will be a star performer for India in the tournament.
The Men in Blue under Virat Kohli would be determined to taste victory of an ICC trophy and it is certain that they would leave no stone unturned for it. The team combinations for the World Cup are in constant talks but one name that has designed its layout to make it certain in the side is that of Suryakumar Yadav. Brad Hogg feels that Yadav is the one to watch out for in the tournament and predicted that he arguably can be the one who would bag the player of the series in the tournament.
“I just think he is going to be the difference in this particular tournament. If he stands out and puts the bowlers off with that array of shots, I think he is going to set the tournament up for India. For me, I think Suryakumar Yadav is the man for India and I think he’s the man to watch at the T20 World Cup. I think he might be Player of the Series at the T20 World Cup. That’s a big call so far out.” Hogg said on his YouTube channel
Brad Hogg lavishes praises on Suryakumar Yadav
Suryakumar Yadav has gone on to impress everybody with his sheer flair. Ever since he made his debut for India against England he has consistently scored runs. With the plethora of shots he has under his sleeves, Hogg feels that he has expanded his game and pinned his hopes on the batter to play at number 3 in the World Cup.
“I think Suryakumar Yadav is definitely going to be in the World Cup. Virat Kohli will be opening with Rohit Sharma and you’ll have Suryakumar Yadav coming in at No. 3. I just think he’s expanded his game… the range of shots that he’s got… he’s unorthodox as well so he can play different ramp shots on both leg and offside, but he can also attack you and use his feet,” Hogg said
