Pakistan allrounder, Shadab Khan has recently given an interview in which he has shown admiration and respect for India skipper, Rohit Sharma.

It is no surprising fact that India has a plethora of stars in their current lineup who are keen to win the World Cup for the third time.

Also, the Pakistan Cricket Team has arrived in India after a gap of seven years to play the World Cup.

Meanwhile, Shadab feels that Rohit Sharma is a very dangerous batter to bowl to for any bowler.

Says Shadab,

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

Shadab Khan in full praise of the welcome they received in Hyderabad

Talking about the warm welcome that the Pakistan team received at Hyderabad airport, Shadab Khan is extremely thankful.

He has also talked about the food and the other hospitality that they have received so far from everyone.

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.

Adding further, he says,

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).

Meanwhile, Pakistan has already lost its first warm-up game to New Zealand and will look to defeat Australia today.

Moreover, they begin their World Cup campaign on the 6th of October against the Netherlands.
