BENGALURU: Australian all-rounder Shane Watson is mighty impressed with young Indian batsman Sarfaraz Khan, who he says is an incredible batsman with amazing control over his shots.
Sarfaraz smashed 35 runs off just 10 balls, hitting five fours and two sixes, to propel Royal Challengers Bangalore toa 200-plus total against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Tuesday night.
“He is an incredible young man and there is no doubt that he has worked extremely hard to get all kinds of shots right. The control over shots he has… never seen before for a young talent like him. It shows he has practised hell of a lot, and we saw him this tonight,” he told reporters at the post-match press conference. Watson also said it is a pleasure to watch AB de Villiers bat. The South African batsman hammered Hyderabad bowlers around the park with a whirlwind knock of 82, that was laced with seven fours and six shots over the ropes.
“What I saw tonight is as good as batting I have ever seen. He didn’t look like taking risk at all in his entire innings. One shot he played off the backfoot for a six is an incredible shot to play, and he does it with so much of ease is really a pleasure to watch. He executes his shots incredibly well,” he said.
