    The millions of cricket fans across the globe are eagerly waiting for the heavyweight clash between India and Pakistan scheduled to be starting on 28 August at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai. Former Pakistan legendary cricketer Wasim Akram has named the most dangerous Indian batsman who will pose a definite threat for the Pakistani side. Akram has surely surprised everyone by picking Suryakumar Yadav as his current favourite batsman in this Indian side that also includes the likes of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul.

    Wasim Akram mentioned that Surya has been phenomenal in the shortest format of the game recently. The right-handed Mumbai batsman scored an amazing century during the third and final T20I against England and also smashed an excellent fifty while opening the batting against West Indies.

    “And since he has made it to the Indian squad, he has been a treat to watch. I think he is a very dangerous player against either spin or fast bowlers once he sets in and he is actually 360° player who can play either this side, that side… the lap shot, towards cow corner, equally good against spinners,” added Akram.
