Virat Kohli Is All Praise For Spinner Kuldeep Yadav, Says He Is ‘Lethal On Dry Wickets’

Published on 27 June, 2017 at 9:15 pm By

Indian skipper Virat Kohli was all praise for left-arm leg spinner, Kuldeep Yadav, for his three-wicket haul in the 105-run victory against the West Indies in the second ODI cricket match at Queen’s Park Oval.

Kuldeep Yadav in his 3/50 on Sunday picked up West Indies opener Shai Hope (81), middle order batsman Evin Lewis (21) and Jason Holder (29). Caribbean opener Hope looked in good touch, scoring at a strike rate of 92.04 but failed to lead the team to victory as he was adjudged leg before wicket off Yadav’s delivery.

Middle-order batsman Lewis and Holder fell prey to Yadav in similar fashion after being stumped by Indian wicket-keeper, Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

As per a report, Kohli reveals,

When batsmen try to attack, he can slow his pace down, just beat the batsmen halfway into the pitch. So he (Kuldeep Yadav) is quite amazing with what he does with the ball. I’ve faced him in the IPL as well, he’s not easy to get away — especially when the wicket is dry like it was today.



He becomes even more lethal. Credit to him for putting in a performance like that in his first bowling performance in ODIs.

Kohli added,

It becomes difficult when he bowls cross-seam deliveries turning both ways. Usually bowlers bowl seam-up deliveries turning in and cross seam bowling the googly. But he can do both bowling cross seam, so that it becomes difficult to pick from the wrist.

Pumped about the performance of these young players, the Captain gushed,

The 2019 World Cup, we’ve got 15 players here, then we’ve got a pool of 10 or 12 back home who will probably be tested over the next two years, see how they react in pressure situations, and who’s able to make more impact through the middle overs for us, especially with the ball. That’s something we need to look at as a side, to improve upon going ahead, then figure out who the best guys are.
