Shadab Khan also picked up Kuldeep Yadav as the most dangerous Indian bowler.

Pakistan all-rounder Shadab Khan expressed his admiration for Indian captain Rohit Sharma and said he is the most difficult to bowl. The swashbuckling opener faced Shadab in the Asia Cup and stamped his authority over him in the Super 4 clash, however, the leg-spinner eventually got him out.

The leg-spinner talked about bowling to Rohit in the press conference in Hyderabad.

“I admire Rohit Sharma a lot and among the leading batsmen in the world he is the most difficult to bowl to. Once he gets set he becomes very dangerous,” Shadab said in the presser.

He also picked up Kuldeep Yadav as the most dangerous Indian bowler. Kuldeep has been in sensational form and recently won the Player of the Tournament in the Asia Cup.

“Among the bowlers, since I am a leg-spinner, it will be Kuldeep Yadav given his recent form,” said Shadab.

Shadab was in a light mood while addressing the media persons.

Glancing at the top cop from Hyderabad police manning the media conference room, the leg-spinner couldn’t help saying

“Singham bhi aaye hain yaha pe. (I see Singham is also present here).”

The reference of super-hit Bollywood cop movie wasn’t lost on anyone as Shadab spoke with a lot of warmth about how the ‘City of Nizams’ have received their cricket team with open arms.

“The welcome was fantastic at the (Hyderabad) airport and also a lot of people have been thronging the team hotel and hospitality wise it’s been really good,” Shadab told mediapersons during the first official media conference organised by the team.

Hyderabadi food is meant to tickle everyone’s taste buds and Shadab is no different.

Shadab is hoping to get the same amount of love from Indians when they arrive in India for the marquee clash against India at Narendra Modi Stadium.

“The food has been really tasty and the support staff (all South Africans) are worried that we end up increasing our fat percentage (laughs). Hope, we get the same love in Ahmedabad where we play India (laughs),” said Shadab referring to his team’s much-awaited clash against the arch-rivals on October 14.
