Kuldeep, who was called as a replacement for injured skipper Virat Kohli, dismissed David Warner, Handscomb, Glenn Maxwell and Cummins, while giving away 68 runs in his 23 overs.
His excellent bowling performance helped the hosts to restrict Australia to 300 runs in their first innings in the decisive fourth Test in Dharamsala.
Kuldeep was in tears after getting his maiden Test wicket. After the over, Kohli was seen having a chat with the youngster at the boundary line.
Every wicket that the youngster got had coach Anil Kumble stand up and applaud.
In the three Test matches, India opted for seven batsmen, and four bowlers. But in Dharamsala, they have opted for six batsmen, five bowlers.
