Ahmedabad – India’s left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav is throwing spins in this year’s Cricket World Cup. In the match against Pakistan too, he scored 35 runs and dismissed two batsmen. Against this backdrop, Kuldeep Yadav said after the match, Pakistan batsmen could not recognize my bowling on the Narendra Modi Stadium pitch. They did not understand which direction the ball would go in the hands. So he was in a dilemma whether to play a sweep or a normal shot. I always like to dismiss batsmen like this.
Kuldeep Yadav was bowling the 33rd over. Saud Shakeel was dismissed on the second ball of that over and Iftikhar Ahmed on the sixth ball. Kuldeep clinched the deal; So Ahmed was made Triphalachi. Regarding the ball on which Ahmed was dismissed, Kuldeep said he did not plan to get Ahmed behind leg, but tried to googly the ball. This ball was challenging for Ahmed. He was born in Triphala.
Kuldeep got two wickets in one over. He was not going to bowl this over. After interacting with captain Rohit Sharma, he was handed the ball. He said about this, Mohammad Siraj dismissed Babar Azam. After that I was given an extra over. Pakistan batsmen play the sweep shot very often. I thought they would play similar shots on my bowling, but their batsmen were not hitting sweeps, said Kuldeep.
A challenge of 270 runs
Regarding the Narendra Modi Stadium pitch, Kuldeep Yadav said, no one was getting help on the pitch here. Whether spinning or fast; None of these bowlers were able to achieve much success, but the pitch was good for the batsmen. It should have been a 270-run challenge here, but we managed to bowl out the Pakistan team for fewer runs.
Lucky against Pakistan
Whenever Kuldeep Yadav has represented India against Pakistan, Team India has won. It means he is lucky. He says about this, I have played three to four matches against Pakistan. India has won all these matches. It’s a pleasure. The best moment for me is the victory in the 2019 World Cup. Meanwhile, Kuldeep likes to bowl in the second session of the match; But captain Rohit won the toss and accepted fielding first. He laughed and said, likes to bowl in the light, but Rohit doesn’t listen to me.
