Ind vs Eng – Kuldeep Yadav – “Bazball has made the bowlers plan how to restrict runs” – LSB

4 Min Read

Indian left-arm pacer Kuldeep Yadav said he enjoyed his first taste of England’s paceball approach in Visakhapatnam because it not only created more wicket-taking opportunities but also made the bowlers think about restricting the batsmen in Test cricket.

“Normally, in tests, you’re not used to teams attacking you with that kind of approach [Bazball]But it also includes you a lot,” Kuldeep said ahead of the third Test against England starting on February 15 in Rajkot. “As a spinner, it makes you more focused on how you want to bowl and what your style is.

“Normally when you play Tests, you don’t worry about the batsmen attacking you, you just focus on how you want to get them out. But here the approach is different, they are in attack mode so you also have to plan how to restrict them. When they play shots, you have many chances to take wickets It’s interesting. The last match was my first [against Bazball]“I enjoyed it a lot, it’s good for cricket.”

The Visakhapatnam Test was only Kuldeep’s ninth Test since making his debut in March 2017. It was his first in over 15 months. Kuldeep picked up three of his four wickets in the first innings as India took a 143-run lead helping them level the five-Test series 1-1.

“It was good,” Kuldeep said with a smile when asked about finally getting a chance in Test cricket. “Whatever tests I had, I did well. I had three five-putts, so yeah, it feels good when you see the stats. I’m very happy.”

The pitches for the first two Tests of this series have not been a turnaround in the order, and if the trend continues in Rajkot, Kuldeep could retain his place in the XI even if Ravindra Jadeja returns. Kuldeep’s accuracy and extra bounce made him more effective than Axar Patel in Visakhapatnam.

“I am not sure about my position,” he said when asked about his chances of playing in Rajkot. “If I have the opportunity, I will be more than happy. I don’t think too much about whether I play or not. I just enjoy my day and keep working hard. Integration is important in the team.” Game. that simple.”

“It will be a wicket,” he said when asked about the pitch for the upcoming Test against England. “This does not mean that there will be 700-800 points scored.” It will be a good wicket. “It will not be a change of order, it will be a straight wicket, which is good for cricket.”

Why has there been a sudden shift in the nature of the presentations for this series?

Kuldeep said: “I did not play on changing the order. I do not know what the approach or idea is. It is a team management decision.” “Obviously everyone wants to watch good cricket. I don’t know if I’ll get a chance or not, but whether it’s flat wicket or bowl cricket, I enjoy it. I think batting is important too, not just fast bowling.” Bowling is in the game too. It’s a good game of cricket. It’s not like you’re just going to see toppers, but hopefully you’ll see [laughs]”.
