Kuldeep claimed his maiden fifer on Australian soil

Australia legend Shane Warne is extremely proud of Kuldeep Yadav claiming his first five-wicket haul in his maiden Test match in Australia on Day 4 of the final Test in Sydney. His fifer helped India enforce the follow-on after the hosts were bowled out for 300 on Sunday. 

Warne took to Twitter to congratulate Kuldeep. His caption read,'Well bowled & congrats on your 5 wicket haul @imkuldeep18 also, thankyou for your very kind words - it’s been a pleasure to work with you & watch you bowl my friend !' 

Earlier, Bad light forced an early tea as umpires took players off the field with eight minutes remaining in the belated session with Marcus Harris (2) and Usman Khawaja (4) the unbeaten batsmen in the second innings.

This was after Australia were bowled out for 300 runs (104.5 overs) in their first innings and were asked to follow on, surrendering a lead of 322 runs. Kuldeep took 5-99 in his first game of the series.

After the morning session was washed out, play resumed at 1.50 pm local time with 230 minutes lost to bad light and rain since day three.

India took the second new ball immediately and made quick inroads. Mohammed Shami (2-58) bowled Pat Cummins (25) with a ball that kept low on the sixth ball after resumption of play.
