is one of the players that the former all-rounder said is similar to how he batted

“I think when I see Abhishek (Sharma), he reminds me a lot about myself.

The pull shot, the backfoot shot he hits, I felt I was very much like him,” Yuvraj said on Sports18.

Abhishek has impressed with consistent performances for SRH this season.

He has scored 331 runs at a strike rate of 132.40 and is his team's highest run scorer.
