De Villiers reacts to Surykumar Yadav’s remark about him
The swashbuckling middle-order batter Suryakumar Yadav has mesmerized everyone with his shot-making ability in the ongoing 20-20 World Cup. The new Mr 360-degree has been lauded by many former cricketers and some even compared him with the legendary AB De Villiers. However, in an interview with Star Sports, the cricketer revealed how there can be only one De Villiers in cricket.
“There is only one 360-degree player in the world, and I will try to play like him,” Yadav said after smacking 61 off 25 balls against Zimbabwe. Courtesy of his brilliant innings, the Indians put 186 runs on board after 20 overs and eventually won the match by 71 runs. Yadav was later adjudged as the Player of the Match for his extraordinary batting.
Minutes later, the former Proteas captain reacted by lauding the cricketer and assures that the 32-year-old is quickly getting there.“You’re very quickly getting there dude, and even more! Well played today,” the former South Africa international tweeted.
