Ever since Kuldeep Yadav was introduced into the international circuit, he has bamboozled batsman all over the world with his trickery.
‘The Chinaman’ is a rare breed and not many batsmen in the world have played them, in training or during a match scenario.
Kuldeep has used that to his advantage in all three formats and is slowly cementing his place as India’s prime wicket taker during the middle overs.
He did it again today, getting the prized wicket of JP Duminy during the middle overs, getting him with the wrong one, that Duminy just didn’t pick.

All the batsmen looked uncomfortable against him, trying to pick him off the pitch rather than off his hand. A grave mistake!
Kuldeep was ecstatic with the dismissal, doing his little run around the pitch, happy with his effort against the experienced Duminy.
South Africa had started their innings on a very strong note, with both Amla and QDK getting into their groove and taking the attack to the Indian bowlers.
Until the spinners came on.
Chahal and Kuldeep stamped their authority on the game, slowing things down with respect to run-scoring and picking him crucial wickets.
South Africa are currently 142/5 in 32 overs, with Morris and du Plessis in the middle, trying to string a partnership together in order to get a respectable score on the board.
Virat Kohli and co. would be hoping to restrict South Africa to a score of 250 and then chase it down under lights.
India have never won an ODI against South Africa at Durban, but the by the looks of it, it seems that this Indian side can break the Durban woodoo today.
