As India gear up to start their T20 World Cup 2021 campaign on Sunday, Wasim Akram has praised Suryakumar Yadav for his batting skills and feels the Mumbai Indians (MI) cricketer is crucial for his side in the tournament. It is possible. Speaking at the Sports Tak Par Salaam cricket show, Akram said that Suryakumar could be India’s game-changer after the powerplay overs and also felt that he has “improved as a cricketer”. “India have got a player in Suryakumar Yadav. I think he will change the game in the coming times after those 6 overs. I have seen his shots. He was with me in KKR too, now he is a cricketer. As it has improved.” he said.

He further added, “He plays his shots, plays safe shots and doesn’t stop. So, he needs to go the way he has been playing in his career.”

Akram also pointed to the improvement of Indian cricket in recent years and attributed it to investments in first-class cricket.


“I haven’t watched Indian cricket very keenly. I clearly watch the big games. The way they won the Test series in Australia and then their performance in England. Indian cricket is at a high level, no doubt about it. All this is because of the investment for first-class cricket, which is why so many young and promising players are coming up through the ranks,” he said.

India will open their campaign against Pakistan at the Dubai International Stadium on Sunday and look to win. The team led by Virat Kohli played two warm-up matches (England and Australia) and won both the matches.
