AB de Villiers reacts after Suryakumar said there is only one 360 degree player in the world

India’s star batsman Suryakumar Yadav has been one of the vital performers for the national cricket team in the shortest format of the game ever since he made his debut in T20Is.

The right-handed batter has been quite consistent in the ongoing edition of the ICC Men’s Twenty20 World Cup 2022 in Australia.

He is known for his incredibly ability to play a wide range of shots all over the park with relative ease. This is mainly the reason why his style of batting is compared to that of AB de Villiers.

He is currently the third leading run-scorer in the ongoing edition of the T20 World Cup. Having played all five games for India in the Super 12, he amassed 225 runs at an average of 75.

Overall, he has slammed as many 25 fours and 8 sixes in this showpiece event.

When the former India cricketer Irfan Pathan asked about the comparison between him and AB de Villiers, Suryakumar Yadav gave an epic reply. There is only one 360-degree player in the world, and I will try to play like him,” responded Suryakumar when being called ‘Mr. 360’.

Later, AB de Villiers responded on Twitter by saying, “You’re very quickly getting there dude, and even more! Well played today.”

While speaking to Star Sports, former Indian cricketer, Gautam Gambhir also reserved the highest respect for Suryakumar Yadav. “There are players like Virat Kohli, KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma, who are very orthodox players. Suryakumar Yadav is different. Enjoy, watch and relish it. Because you don’t get these kind of players that often and India has never had this kind of player, especially batting at No.4.

“You will get traditional players who will give you much more consistency, but imagine the strike rate if Suryakumar, what was it, 180 I guess? Above 200 runs, three fifties…he is the Player of the Tournament for me already even if India don’t go on to win it. He is already the best because the kind of impact he has had,” he added.
