Brad Hogg Makes Massive T20 World Cup Prediction For Indian Batsman
Former Australian spinner Brag Hogg has made a huge prediction for an Indian player. That is with regards to the upcoming T20 World Cup. The former Aussie star has picked a player from the Indian team to be the Player Of The Series for the upcoming tournament. The ex-player turned Pundit made this prediction on a YouTube video recently, saying that Indian batsman Suryakumar Yadav would get this accolade.
A lot of former players and commentators have been talking about the competition. They have been giving their takes so far and make predictions. Brad Hogg also was up for commenting on what he thought would happen.
What Did Brad Hogg Say About Suryakumar Yadav And Why Does He Feel That He Will Be The Player Of The Series At The T20 World Cup?
The cricketing world has been impressed by the impact made by Suryakumar Yadav (SKY). He is not a young player like some of his teammates. However, he has been really impressive in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and since making his debut for Team India. This has given a lot of confidence to the selectors to pick him on a regular basis and he has even impressed in Sri Lanka so far.
Consistency is the name of the game and Hogg had this to say, “I think Suryakumar Yadav is definitely going to be in the World Cup. Virat Kohli will open with Rohit Sharma. You will have Suryakumar Yadav coming in at No. 3. I just think he has now expanded his game… The range of shots that he has got. He is unorthodox as well so he can play different ramp shots on both leg and offside. To add to that, he can also attack you and use his feet.”
“I just think he is going to be the difference in this particular tournament. If he stands out and puts the bowlers off with that array of shots, I think he is going to set the tournament up for India. For me, I think Suryakumar Yadav is the man for India and I think he is the man to watch at the T20 World Cup. I think he might be Player of the Series at the T20 World Cup. That is a very big call so far out.”
Despite that, a lot of Indian fans may agree with Hogg. SKY has looked brilliant so far and has made his presence felt. However, a World Cup and that too the T20 World Cup is a different ball-game altogether. It will be interesting to see whether things actually work out or not.
