With the third and the final Test scheduled to start from tomorrow, left-arm chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav is hopeful of the fact that despite being some grass left on the Pallekele wicket, he will be able to perform for his team. He made a brilliant debut in the Dharamsala Test against Australia and bagged 4 crucial wickets in the 1st innings.

Kuldeep said that the pitch doesn’t bother him.

“For me, the wicket doesn’t matter,” said the Chinaman. “I don’t see the wicket at all. In childhood, I used to bowl on cement wickets and there can be no better wickets [for batting] than cement wickets. On grassy wickets, some balls can bounce and some can skid through. So there is still some advantage even if there is no turn.”

The presence of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja hasn’t allowed Kuldeep to break into the team but Jadeja’s suspension from the final Test will surely pave way for him despite the inclusion of Axar Patel. “You cannot walk into the team so easily, and you have to wait; that’s the rule of cricket.

“It is good that I have worked with them [R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja], and I have been in the team with them for last six-seven months. So I have got to learn a lot from them, especially playing Test cricket with them. You gain experience like this and it helps in the future. I try to stay with them mostly and keep talking to them; they help me a lot.”

Kuldeep has appeared in 5 ODI’s and a Test for India and his performance has been pretty good up till now. In his debut Test against Australia Kuldeep bagged 4/68 in the 1st innings and in the ODI series in West Indies, the left-arm chinaman bowler bagged 8 wickets in 4 ODI’s. He will be looking forward to making his mark in the final Test starting from tomorrow.
