“Of course, Rohit SharmaKL Rahul and Virat Kohli are there, but one of my favourite 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,” Wasim Akram said in a press conference organised by Star Sports.

“Since he made into the Indian squad. he has been a treat to watch. He is a very dangerous player against spin and fast bowling. Once he sets in, he is a 360-degree player. In my opinion, he will be one of the dangerous players not just against Pakistan, but for all the teams.”

One of the most successful teams – India will play their first match against their arch rivalry Pakistan on August 28 – the second day of the tournament.

The Super Four rounds will be played between September 3 – 9 and the final match is scheduled to play on September 11 in Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai. All matches will be played on 7:30 PM IST / 02:00 PM GMT.
