Hyderabad: Pakistan’s vice-captain and leg-spinner Shadab Khan has hailed Indian skipper Rohit Sharma as the ‘most difficult batter to bowl’ ahead of the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup 2023.
The Pak spinner also rated Kuldeep Yadav as the most lethal spinner considering his recent form.
“I admire Rohit Sharma a lot and, among the leading batsman in the world, he is the most difficult to bowl at. Once he gets set, he becomes very dangerous. Among the bowlers, since I am leg-spinner, it will be Kuldeep Yadav given his recent form,” Shadab told reporters in Hyderabad.
After losing the first warm-up game against New Zealand, Pakistan will play second warm-up game against Australia on October 3 in Hyderabad.
Pakistan will start it’s official campaign on October 6 against Netherlands at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, in Hyderabad.
