India‘s Chinaman spinner Kuldeep Yadav is having a good time off late, especially against Australia as he always gets to get rid of their swash-buckling opener David Warner. Owing to this, Kuldeep believes that the openers tend to be under pressure each and every time he faces him. Ahead of the second One-Day International (ODI) at the historic Eden Gardens Stadium in Kolkata between the two sides, Kuldeep said that if a bowler is all over the batsman, there is hardly any pressure on the bowlers, which puts him in the advantage to get rid of him at anytime. He also said that he feels good while bowling against Warner and has a plan for him for the next four games. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: India vs Australia 2017, 2nd ODI at Kolkata

“If you are all over a batsman, you don’t feel the pressure. I think Warner is under pressure when he is playing me. He feels I can get him out any time. I feel good when I bowl to Warner. I set up a plan when I bowl to him. Hopefully, I will get him out on more occasions in the next four ODIs,” said Kuldeep, as reported by IANS.

Speaking on the toughest batsman to bowl to in the current Australian side, Kuldeep instantly picked up skipper Steven Smith as the one. “In Tests, I have seen him reading the balls well. He knows how to eke out singles. I feel it is tough to bowl to him. Generally, he prefers playing on the leg stump. Whenever he feels, he hits a four and likewise takes a single at will. So I feel it is tough to bowl to him,” he said. Steven Smith: Excited to play my 100th ODI

He also spoke on getting rid of the top order early. “In any team if you get the top two batsmen out it’s helpful. We always want to get Warner out as early as we can as he can change the game from any stage. Smith is also a quality player and once he gets in, he can strike well and stretch the game,” he said.

Speaking on the impact of two wrist spinners in the side, he said, “Whenever I played, I played with a left-arm spinner. Or in Ranji Trophy, I played with Piyush Chawla bhai but not for a long time. Now good experience as we have two wrist spinners in the side. The chances of taking a wicket increases. If you have two attacking spinners wickets come more. Left arm spinners don’t have much variations so the batsman won’t take much chances. But a wrist spinner can deceive him, I feel.”

“We have a lot of responsibility. We are two young spinners and we can go through spells at times when we won’t be getting wickets. So it’s a good experience also for us because the more we will do well now, we will form a partnership for the future in Indian cricket. We still have lots to learn. We will mature series by series,” he added.

He ended by speaking on Hardik Pandya’s contribution to the side. “It is very important to have a bowling all-rounder in the side. He can change the game and the momentum of the game. It’s great to have someone like him in the side. He will play for a long time,” he said.
