Kuldeep Yadav in his maiden test for India has impressed one and all and has left the Australian batsman bamboozled with his different variations. The Australian batsmen haven’t had a clue against the chinaman bowling of young Kuldeep, with each and everyone present at the picturesque HPCA stadium in Dharamsala, left impressed with the 22-year old and his mastery of the turning ball. The young Kuldeep picked up 3 wickets in the session, which has helped India turn the tide in their favor. After a lackluster first session, the young Kuldeep stood up and delivered, when his country needed him the most. He has picked up the valuable wickets of quality batsman like the dangerous David Warner, Australia’s best player of spin Peter Handscomb and the mercurial Glenn Maxwell. His efforts have meant that India are now in the pole position of the match, after tea on Day 2.
Even legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar was left in awe of Yadav’s performance, which showed maturity way beyond his age. Sachin knows a thing or two about handling pressure at the very young age and was left impressed by Kuldeep’s skills and temperament.
He took to Twitter, to praise the efforts of the young left-arm chinaman bowler.
