Suryakumar Yadav has come a long way, never seen it happen: AB de Villiers | Cricket News 1


NEW DELHI: The best batsman on show in the T20 World CupSuryakumar Yadav, may call the growing comparisons with AB de Villiers premature, but the original ‘Mr 360 degree’ South African finds it quite fair.
Surya set the World Cup on fire with 225 runs from five matches, including three fifties at a staggering strike rate of 193.97.
He left the pundits and fans in awe with his incredible streak of shots. A late entrant to international cricket, the 32-year-old made batting look ridiculously easy, even in the toughest of conditions, as India experienced against South Africa in Perth.
Amidst constant talk of his ABD-like playing style, Surya recently said there can only be one ‘Mr 360’, but de Villiers himself begged to differ.
“I am very happy for Surya. I think he has come a long way. I never saw it happen, the way he is playing.
“He was very conservative and stuck to his game plans at the beginning, but he is now laying the platform and foundation and then starting to dominate the bowlers. It is fantastic to see and he has a bright future ahead of him,” de Villiers told PTI.

When asked if it is the right time to compare Surya with him, de Villiers, one of the most versatile batsmen in the game, said: “Yes they are. The only thing he will have to focus on is his consistency. He will have to do it for 5 to 10 years and then he will find himself in the golden books of cricketers.”
De Villiers left the cricketing world in awe as he played some outrageous shots all over the park. But was he bowled over by Surya’s game?

“Any player coming into form… I think of quite a few guys who are really starting to play at the peak of their powers, that makes me very excited. Every sportsman for that matter…
“It’s beautiful to watch when they’re really free and having fun out there. Great to see Surya playing the way he’s playing now,” said the 38-year-old, who will retire from all forms of cricket in 2021.
‘Four best teams in T20 World Cup semi-finals, but more games needed’
India, England, New Zealand and Pakistan reached the World Cup semi-final in Australia. The tournament has seen many upsets, making it one of the most unpredictable ICC events in recent times.
Twelve teams including four from the preliminary qualifying round formed the Super 12 stage with teams divided into two groups of six. Teams played five games in the league phase and this number is not enough for De Villiers.
“I feel the top four teams in the world are in the semi-finals of the World Cup. I feel there should be more matches. There are not enough matches.
“If you have 10 teams, you play nine games and you get the top four and then you have the IPL play-off-like system where one plays two, three plays four and if one or two lose they play the winner of three and four .

“It’s a fair system to me. 99 percent of the time you’ll get the best team winning the tournament,” he said.
Regarding his future, de Villiers said he has no long-term plans.
“I haven’t decided anything yet. Take it easy this year and we’ll see what happens in the future.”
