Summary

  • If he hadn’t done so already, Kuldeep Yadav announced himself upon the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 with a delivery he described as perfect, that too against arch-rivals Pakistan.
  • The 24-year-old literally turned the tie against Pakistan in favour of India at Old Trafford, Manchester when he removed Babar Azam in one of the moments of the tournament so far.
  • In front of a packed and tense Old Trafford crowd, Kuldeep enticed Babar forward before the ball dipped late, turned between bat and pad from off to leg and crashed into the stumps.
  • Kuldeep revealed that he was so pleased with the Babar ball that he watched it during the rain break that temporarily halted the latest victory charge.
  • But the killer stat is his strike rate of a wicket every 27.40 balls, the best of any India bowler in their 45 years of ODI cricket to have sent down a minimum of 1,000 deliveries.
