Shadab Khan, the vice-captain of the Pakistan cricket team in the World Cup 2023, is considered to be the best all-rounder in Pakistan. Shadab, an aggressive right-handed batsman and right-arm leg spinner, has single-handedly made Pakistan win many matches. Pakistan team has high hopes for him in the World Cup also. In the press conference held in Hyderabad on September 1, Shadab Khan gave an important statement regarding Indian players.
Shadab Khan considers these two players as a big threat:
In the press conference, Shadab Khan said on the question related to Indian players, ‘I consider Rohit Sharma and Kuldeep Yadav to be very dangerous players. These two can snatch the match from you at any time.’ Pakistan’s vice-captain also named Rohit Sharma and Kuldeep Yadav as his favorite batsman and bowler in Team India.
Shadab Khan did not forget the last match:
The last match between India and Pakistan was in Asia Cup 2023. In this match, Rohit Sharma spoiled Shadab Khan’s line length by washing him badly in his first 2 overs. Kuldeep Yadav played a big role in India’s victory by taking 5 wickets in that match. India won that match by 228 runs.
Questions raised on the form:
Shadab Khan’s performance was not good in Asia Cup 2023. He was not able to show his impact with the ball and bat. This was the reason why the news of his exclusion from the World Cup team was also in the news, but considering his talent, ability, and experience, the PCB not only kept him in the team but also retained his vice-captaincy. Pakistan team is expecting a bright performance from this all-rounder in the World Cup. Let us tell you that Shadab Khan has scored 734 runs in 39 innings of 64 matches at an average of 26.21 with 4 half-centuries and has taken 83 wickets in his name.
