Wrist spinner <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/kuldeep-yadav/news/">Kuldeep Yadav</a> says <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/india/">India</a> have showed they can defend relatively smaller totals with victories over West Indies and Afghanistan in the ongoing <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/icc-cricket-world-cup-2019-200898/">World Cup</a>. <p></p> <p></p>The Indian attack defended 224 against Afghanistan and 268 against West Indies on Thursday, with almost all the bowlers playing a part in these wins. <p></p> <p></p>The all-round efforts shows that India's bowling attack is not just about the world's number one bowler Jasprit Bumrah. <p></p> <p></p>"Jasprit has been bowling really well and has been for a couple of years since his international debut," said Kuldeep, who took 1/35 including the crucial wicket of Nicholas Pooran for 28 against the West Indies. <p></p> <p></p>"Then you have (Mohammed) Shami, who was only playing his second game and bowled really well. We've got a good fast bowling attack, as well as spinners. <p></p> <p></p>"We're just looking for the team combination. We're doing really well as a bowling attack and that is important. In the last game (against Afghanistan) we defended 225 and showed we can defend a total like this." <p></p> <p></p>Although the match finally turned out to be one-sided, the West Indies seemed in the hunt at the halfway stage. <p></p> <p></p>Kemar Roach's three wickets had helped them put India under pressure, but Mahendra Singh Dhoni (56 not out) and Hardik Pandya (46) made crucial contributions. <p></p> <p></p>"We played really well. At one moment we were looking at 250 and then Dhoni and Hardik gave us a good total," Kuldeep said. <p></p> <p></p>"270 was really good on this track. Later the ball was spinning a bit and that gave us the momentum. Shami picking up two early wickets was huge for us, then Hardik got one and I got one so it was a really satisfying performance."
