Just a few days before the epic clash of Ind vs Pakistan. Wasim Akram the former Captain and legendary pacer were asked to pick the most dangerous player from a rival team. Akram picked the player who can be really dangerous for men in green. Although the skipper Rohit Sharma and ex-captain Virat Kohli were obvious choices. Akram selected the newly added player as the one he believes is very dangerous.

The men in blue will be back with their best players in the squad for the upcoming Asia Cup. The likes of Virat Kohli and others will be back after a very long break. Along with Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, and Jadeja will be back in the Indian colors. India will start their Asia cup with a match against their arch-rivals Pakistan on the 28th of August. It’ll be the first time both teams meet after India tasted their worst defeat against Pakistan in T20 WC last year. India will be looking to get over that loss and start their campaign with a win.

Akram’s favorite player

After being asked about the player who would hurt the men in green. In addition, Akram took no time to express the belief he has in Suryakumar Yadav. Yadav made his debut for India in 2021 in the month of march. However, while talking to the media. Wasim Akram expressed his views and also said

“Of course, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, and Virat Kohli are there, but one of my favorite players these days, in this shorter format is Suryakumar Yadav. He has been phenomenal. I saw him the first year when he joined the Kolkata Knight Riders and he played a couple of games batting at No. 7 and 8. And a couple of shots he played – the one that he picks from the middle of his bat towards fine leg – that’s an unusual and difficult shot to muster,”
