Details for Kuldeep Yadav: Shivalkar praises Kuldeep Yadav for accuracy, loop:
Indian player Kuldeep Yadav is doing very well in the India tour of England 2018. Kuldeep has taken 9 wickets in two games out of three matches of ODI series against England. That’s why English batsmen are struggling very hard.
“I have not seen much of Kuldeep. If he is getting so many wickets, he must be having control over the ball, that’s the main thing. When does a bowler become successful – first (because of) his accuracy. He has a particular loop and without giving loop nothing happens,” the 78-year-old Shivalkar told PTI.
In the first ODI game at Nottingham, Kuldeep returned with figures of 6/25, his first-five wicket haul.
“The leg-spin which he (Kuldeep) bowls, he does not turn much, but he just uses his fingers over the ball and releases it. Since he has accuracy, nobody must be taking chances against him,” added Shivalkar.
To prove his point, Shivalkar – who has played only unofficial “Tests” for the country – cited the example of English skipper Eoin Morgan, who was one of Kuldeep’s victim in the second ODI at Lords. He was caught in the deep after hitting a full-toss.
Shivalkar also noted that Indian team has got a big option as Kuldeep and Chahal. As these players are accurate, Shivalkar thinks the team India should take benefit of them to win the match series.
