For a batter, there is nothing better than praise from a bowler, especially if that bowler is the legendary Wasim Akram.

“When I play a player like Gill, even in T20 format, it’s like playing Sachin Tendulkar in one-day cricket in the first 10 overs when only two fielders were allowed (outside the 30-yard box). circle)”. said the legendary Pakistani cricketer.
“If I had to play Jayasuriya or Kaluvitarny, I knew I had a chance. I can knock them out as they hit every ball. But players like Sachin and Gill make the right shots in cricket. a player who consistently scores in all three formats, he is the future superstar of world cricket.
