India wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav picked three Indian batters that are difficult to bowl to in all three formats of the game ahead of the game against Australia in the T20 World Cup 2024.

In the T20Is, Kuldeep Yadav picked Suryakumar Yadav. The spinner while talking about the reason behind his choice claimed that the the batter is very attacking and plays different types of shots. He admitted that spinners face a lot of difficulties in bowling to him. Speaking to journalist Vimal Kumar, he explained: 

"Surya in T20. I think he plays very well against spinners. He is very attacking. His shots are also very different. Sweep, reverse sweep, slog sweep. So, spinners have some problems." 

Suryakumar Yadav no doubt is one of the most difficult batters to bowl to in T20I cricket. The No.1 ranked T20I batter in the last few years hasn't put a foot wrong in the shortest format of the game and has set new bars for how T20 cricket should be played. 

Suryakumar Yadav's ability to hit the shots all over the park makes him unique. The middle-order batter has been often compared to AB de Villiers and many even rate him better than the former South Africa batter, which speaks a lot about his caliber as the batter.

Talking about the one day, Kuldeep Yadav went with skipper Rohit Sharma, and in Tests, he backed Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara. He stated: "In one day, obviously Rohit Bhai. In the Test, I think Puji Bhai and Virat Bhai." 

Rohit Sharma has been an absolute beast in the ODIs. The India captain since the last one decade has been sensational and has been the backbone of the team. He is rated as the best opening batter in the 50-over format and also has slammed three double centuries, which is the most by any batter. 

On the other hand, Virat Kohli has been nothing short of exceptional in Test cricket. Not only in the longest format of the game but is currently amongst the best batters across formats. Cheteshwar Pujara is rated as the modern wall and it's fair to say what he can do in Test cricket no one has that pedigree. 

Kuldeep Yadav spins the web around Bangladesh batters in the T20 World Cup 

Kuldeep Yadav is currently part of the Indian team for the T20 World Cup 2024. He was last seen in action during the game against Bangladesh. The spinner was one of the main reasons behind the Rohit Sharma-led side winning the game and inching closer to the semi-finals of the tournament. 

Kuldeep Yadav bowled 4 overs in the game and tilted the game in his team's favor. The spinner picked 3 wickets and returned with the figures of 3/19. His sensational effort saw India restricting Bangladesh to a total of 146 runs after posting 196 runs and winning the game by 50 runs.
