Kuldeep Yadav, who is an integral part of the Indian team's scheme of things in regard to limited excess cricket, had a difficult time in England when the format changed to Pruebas. Speaking of his fight with the red ball during the Lord's Test, Kuldeep said the transition was not easy, but he hopes to impress and get a team retirement for the series of two home games against the Antilles in October. "There the conditions were such that only one spinner was needed, I had some opportunities here because being out of the team does not really help.From this perspective, these two games are very important.I can build my experience red ball. I will be in a better place against the West Indies when they come here, "Yadav said, citing icc-cricket.com.
Kuldeep was in India playing XI for the second round of the five-game series, but it was completely ineffective, as he admitted 44 runs in nine overs and remained without a wicket. The 23-year-old Chinaman bowler did not have a second start, with England winning by innings and 159 runs at the cricket house.
However, Kuldeep was almost unplayable for England's hitters during the limited leg of the tour. He recorded figures of 5/24 at the first Twenty20 International and also claimed a brilliant 6/25 on the first international day in Nottingham.
"You must change your thinking when you play red ball," Yadav said.
"You have to be patient." For me, it was very difficult to use the red ball after a space because I was quite used to white-ball cricket, and then I was selected for the test team.
"In ODIs and T20s, you tend to try many variations, but with the red ball you need to focus on your line and length."
After his lackluster performance, Kuldeep was eliminated from the team after the third test. He returned to India to play in the four-day games against Australia A. India A lost the first of two games for 98 races, but Yadav redeemed himself well, collecting 2/63 and 2/51.
Virat Kohli's India Team gave an irreproachable 3-1 lead to England with the fifth and final game to be played at the Kennington Oval in London starting Friday.
