India vs Australia 2019: Kuldeep Yadav Sheds Light on Receiving Tips from MS Dhoni
The Men in Blue wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav has opened up on receiving vital tips from an astute thinker of the game; MS Dhoni. The chinaman added Dhoni has often lent a helping hand by suggesting things to youngsters behind the stumps. Kuldeep has praised the efforts of wicketkeeper-batsman for instilling confidence in him. In an ongoing India vs Australia 2019 ODI series, Dhoni has been no different, in approach.
“He carries a lot of experience, he shares things that are really important for youngsters, for me and Chahal, or for that matter, any fast bowler or spinner,” Kuldeep told Sportskeeda.
Kuldeep wants his partners to listen to Dhoni:
Dhoni, who’s smart behind stumps, has had his major contribution in setting up the opposition batsmen. His inputs have further helped bowlers to rely on their strength. Kuldeep believes it becomes vital for any of the slow bowlers to pay to heed what Dhoni would suggest while donning the gloves.
“It is important for any spinner, any bowler for that matter, (to listen to Dhoni) when you have got the best wicketkeeper in the world,” Kuldeep added.
Moreover, the prediction from Dhoni has often worked wonders for the young bowlers. Subsequently, it has paid rich dividends for team India with Dhoni knowing a lot about batsman at the crease.
Kuldeep calls it ‘fun’ on playing alongside MS Dhoni:
Kuldeep has enjoyed himself while playing alongside senior campaigner and former Indian skipper Dhoni. He remarked that Dhoni has inspired many on his road to glory.
The 24-year-old Kuldeep has further expressed delighted in playing alongside Dhoni.
“He just gives inputs, small tips, which really help us during games. It’s a lot of fun playing with him and I feel very lucky because I never thought there would come a time when I would be playing alongside Mahi bhai,” Kuldeep further added.
Kuldeep has continued his white-ball prominence by bagging eight wickets in three games in an ongoing ODI series against Australia. Besides, he is leading the wickets column in the five-match series.
Notably, Kuldeep alongside Yuzvendra Chahal has bowled in tandem to deliver for Team India. Besides, Dhoni has played a pivotal role in guiding the promising spin duo to achieve desired results for the national team.
“He has played such high levels of cricket, and done so much for India. (The tips) Sometimes work, sometimes don’t, but the loyalty remains. He knows everything. Sometimes, you might not know small things about the batsmen, but he does,” Kuldeep concluded.
So far, following a remarkable show across formats Kuldeep has bagged 164 scalps. In the ongoing ODI series against Australia, Kuldeep is followed by Australian paceman Pat Cummins and leg-spinner Adam Zampa. Both have shared a second spot by claiming seven scalps under their belt.
With India leading the series 2-1, hosts will fight it out at Mohali in the penultimate ODI on Sunday (March 10). Earlier, Australia won the Ranchi ODI by 32 runs to register a strong comeback. For India, Virat Kohli continued his merry run by slamming 41st ODI hundred in the third ODI.
