“I’ve known Surya since visiting the IPL. Having the chance to see him commentating has been a gift. He grows before your eyes year after year. You could tell he had the ability simply by looking at him. Additionally, it’s comparable to watching AB.
“His thinking has started to match his skill and ability to play the correct strokes at the right time,” Graeme Smith stated during the India launch of SA20. “He’s at the same level as talent and ability to play the proper shots at the right moment.”
In addition, he noted the vigor and excitement that players like SKY bring to the squad because of their appealing shot-making talents. These qualities draw more fans to the game, which is particularly significant in the T20 format since it’s the shortest.
