Australian wicket-keeper Matthew Wade has picked up his perfect batter list, and three Indians are part of it.
He took Virat Kohli’s name when it came to attitude and temperament. Steve Smith got his vote in terms of drives, primarily cover drive.
Ricky Ponting, who is widely considered the best hooker of the cricket ball, made it to the list in this department of the game.
Wade took late Phillip Hughes’ name in the cut shot category as he had mastered this shot during his career.
The current Wall of the Indian cricket, Cheteshwar Pujara, was hailed for his defence by the 34-year old Aussie player.
For the aggression part, the left-handed batter went with another Indian player. He lauded Hardik Pandya for his attacking batting.
David Warner, who likes to celebrate animatedly after reaching any milestone, got thumbs up from Matthew for his style.
