Young wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav has thanked veteran keeper MS Dhoni and skipper Virat Kohli for their guidance.
Before the match started there was a lot of hype around the match and rightly so. The most important factor that was being stressed upon by the commentators and the cricket experts was that how England play the Indian spinners.
Kuldeep who bagged the Man of the Match award said, “It is my first tour of England and things are going really well. The conditions are prefect, felt like home. The wicket was dry and that’s why I stuck to my line and length. It’s important that when you bowl a wrong ‘un it has to be in the perfect area.
“Obviously when you have two legends (Virat Kohli and Mahendra Singh Dhoni) you need to take all the advice you can. Things are going well and hopefully I’d like to take it into the next match.”
The England bating collapsed as they could not pick Kuldeep Yadav’s variations at all. On the very first delivery that Jonny Bairstow faced, he got a wrong one from Kuldeep Yadav. Bairstow did not read the ball from the hand and tried to go for a booming drive and was stumped.
On the very next delivery Joe Root received another beauty from Kuldeep Yadav to which Root danced outside the crease. The ball hit MS Dhoni’s gloves and bounced towards his helmet. However the veteran keeper collected the ball in time and got the bails off before Root could ground is back.
Kuldeep also bagged the Man of the Match award in the 1st T20I against Ireland. Belonging to a rare breed of chinaman bowlers, Yadav is expected to have a very successful England tour.
