IND VS AUS: “Was Always There”: Gautam Gambhir

Spin has historically been a major factor in determining a series’ fate in India. Former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir predicts that Kuldeep Yadav, rather than veteran off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and left-arm spinner Axar Patel, will be India’s “X-Factor.” In the second ODI against Sri Lanka on Thursday, Kuldeep, who has frequently been ignored by the Indian think-tank, once again showed why he is valuable.

After returning with figures of 3/51 in 10 overs, Kuldeep was named Man of the Match.

“He was always there. It’s just about his confidence. Whatever we have seen of Rohit Sharma, he can give that confidence to young bowlers. Now it’s time that they should persist with Kuldeep Yadav. If you keep him in the sheds and don’t make him play one-day format and you suddenly bring him for the Test series, there’s going to be less bowling under his belt.”

Gambhir said in a conversation with Star Sports

During the most recent Test series between India and Bangladesh, Kuldeep Yadav was a member of the team. He demonstrated his batting prowess in the first Test, scoring a solid 40 runs (114) while partnering with Ashwin for an essential 87 runs that helped India amass 404 runs. Following that, he claimed five wickets, leading to Bangladesh’s defeat for 150 runs.

Kuldeep took three wickets in the following innings and was named Player of the Match for his skill with the bat.

“I feel that he should be playing every 50-over format game till the Australia Test series because he is going to be a very important factor in that series. For me, he is going to be the x-factor ahead of R Ashwin, and Axar Patel.”

Gambhir said

KL Rahul remained undefeated at 64 as India defeated the opposition by four wickets. India now has a 2-0 series lead after Kuldeep and Rahul’s performances in the first two games.
