Inzamam took the name of 3 batsmen, said- they changed cricket
Former Pakistan cricket team captain Inzamam-ul-Haq has said that Sir Vivian Richards, Sanath Jayasuriya and Abraham de Villiers are the three players who have changed the game of cricket. Inzamam-ul-Haq named cricketers of three different eras and said that these players completely changed cricket on the basis of their brilliant game.
Inzamam, the great batsman of his time, told a YouTube channel, “Richards worked to change the game of cricket many years ago. At that time, batsmen used to play fast bowlers on the backfoot, but he showed everyone how fast bowlers can also be played on the front foot. He told people that fast bowlers can also be attacked. ”
Inzamam said to Jayasuriya, “Second change brought Jayasuriya. He decided to attack the fast bowlers in the first 15 overs of the inning. Those who played air shots before their arrival were not usually considered batsmen, but they changed the definition by playing shots from above the infield in the first 15 overs. “
The former Pakistani captain said of the de Villiers, “The third player who worked to change the game of cricket is de Villiers. Today, I blame de Villiers for the fast cricket played in ODIs and T20s. Earlier batsmen used to play shots straight off the bat, but de Villiers started applying paddle sweeps and reverse sweeps. “
