Indian middle-order batsman Suresh Raina has recently praised the Indian chinaman sensation Kuldeep Yadav, who has pushed a break into the Aussies. Kuldeep has played from Uttar Pradesh under Raina’s captaincy and the skipper believes that the spinner is a product of former Indian coach Anil Kumble.

The young spinner has represented India in all the three formats of the game and has bagged an overall 32 wickets in international cricket. Raina was present at an event to launch the eighth Skechers Performance Goa River Marathon to be held on December 10. Long-distance runner Kavita Tungar (Raut) was also present.
Asked about Kuldeep’s remarkable ability, bowling left-hand wrist spin, Raina told the media, “Yeah, he’s doing good. I guess credit goes to Anil (Kumble) bhai. He worked really hard with him. When I was speaking to him during the IPL and first-class cricket, he always used to message Anil Bhai and he’s a product of Anil Kumble.” He further added,”He’s done so much for him. And he’s done well with Brad Hogg as well, the Chinaman for KKR. I think he’s the guy who’ll change everything in the bowling department,”, Raina said.

The Off Spinner did not stop here and further expressed, “Look at the Aussies, they were somehow smashing another spinner, but couldn’t rotate the strike against him. That’s the mind he has. He’s done well for Uttar Pradesh, he’s done well in the u-19 World Cup and you’ll see him shining very soon.”
Australia will look to clinch the T20I series after facing defeat in both Tests and ODIs earlier this year. From India’s point of view, the spinners will once again be the key to success. There will be eyes on Kuldeep, on whether he can continue his good job and win the game for India in the all-important final match of the series. Both the teams have won a game each and will look to win the series in Hyderabad on Friday.
