Kuldeep Yadav 260x260 image
Kuldeep Yadav Kuldeep Yadav Height: 5 Feet, 5 Inches DOB: December 14, 1994

With his undefeatable and rare in the continent left-arm chinaman bowling, young spinner Kuldeep Yadav has made a concrete place for himself in the Indian cricket team in a short period of time. Kuldeep was initially a fast bowler but on the perusal of his childhood coach in a cricket academy in Kanpur, he developed himself to become a left-arm wrist spinner, a rare breed of bowlers in India. The Uttar Pradesh-based spinner made his international debut on March 25, 2017, in a Test match against Australia in Dharamsala. Following an impressive Test outing, Kuldeep made his ODI debut on June 23, 2017, facing West Indies at Port of Spain. On the same tour of Caribbean islands, he managed to make his T20I debut on July 9, 2017 at Kingston. He, along with leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, charmed the national team selectors with his mystical bowling and replaced experienced spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja in the squads for the shorter format of cricket.
