Ever since the departure of Ravichandran Ashwin from the ODI scene, Kuldeep and Chahal have gone around the world and tasted success in white ball cricket. In fact, when it comes to Kuldeep Yadav he even has a five for in Australia in a Test match in Sydney. His recent lack of form not withstanding, he has been a vital cog in the Indian wheel.
Going into the 2019 World Cup, it was the two wrist spinners that made India force to contend with as their wicket taking ability in the middle overs was second to none. In the match against Pakistan, on the back of a brilliant Rohit century, India posted a mammoth total of 336. When it came to Pakistan, it was Babar Azam who had the potential to change the game but Kuldeep took care of him in stunning fashion.
The China-man bowler produced the ideal delivery and bowled Babar through the gate. Kuldeep described the delivery in his own words and said “That was something different. A spinner’s ball that drifted away and then pitched and turned to come inside. Sometimes you wonder how you did that. That too a white ball, not a red one. A white ball does not even turn much.”
