The young chinaman bowler from Himachal Pradesh, Kuldeep Yadav has made excellent debut today against Australia at Dharamshala Cricket Stadium. Well appreciated by team members on taking three big wickets in the first session of 4th test.
Laxman Sivaramakrishnan gave him his maiden cap against the backdrop of the Dhauladhar range. He was absolutely exciting yet calm enough to bowl well in his very first international appearance. A Little pressure on the head but managed to take 3 important Wickets of Australia followed by Warner, Handscomb and Maxwell.
He became the first Indian to take a hat-trick in the Youth World Cup, against Scotland in Dubai.
Kuldeep is few amongst the cricketer who made his first-class debut in the Duleep Trophy before entering for the senior state team. He took three wickets and made a half-century in his maiden game to help Central Zone take the first-innings lead over North Zone and qualify for the final. He finished with 466 runs including his maiden century, and 35 wickets, which had two five-wicket hauls.
“My plan has always been to not bowl flat. My strength is taking wickets, and you control runs also by taking wickets because a new batsman can’t hit you straight away. In T20 it’s obvious that you’ll get hit sometimes,” Kuldeep said before the big final.
“I will continue to bowl that way because that is my strength. I can’t bowl flat. Seriously the ball doesn’t go flat out of my hand,” he added further.
