The Australians have failed to play Kuldeep Yadav on most occasions, however he still does not rue himself as a mystery spinner IANS

Already having made a name for himself, India‘s Chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav has been deemed as the next guy to replace either of Ravichandran Ashwin or Ravindra Jadeja. However, Kuldeep feels the other way as he feels that both Ashwin and Jadeja are great spinners and have done enough for Team India, as there is no question of replacing the duo. In the ongoing series against Australia, Kuldeep, along with Yuzvendra Chahal have made a good impact, as India won the ODI series 4-1, while they lead the three-match T20I series 1-0. The Australians have failed to play Kuldeep on most occasions, however he still does not rue himself as a mystery spinner. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: India vs Australia 2017, 2nd T20I at Guwahati

“I don’t think of that far. Both Ash and Jaddu-bhai have been consistent performers for India in all the three formats. There’s no question of thinking about replacing them. We are very young, and there’s a lot of cricket left in us. It has never crossed my mind,” said Kuldeep, as reported by PTI. “I’m not a mystery bowler who will bowl from different hands. Obviously after two-three years they will pick you and it becomes easy for them. For me, if your basics like alignment and accuracy are right, it becomes easy for you. For me it does not matter if someone tries to pick you from video analysis. If you bowl in right areas, have good variations, landing on the spot and beating the batsmen in air, no matter how many times you see the video it won’t matter,” he added.

“In T20s you can get wickets anytime as batsmen always try to hit you out of the park. Your basics need to be right without thinking much about the batsmen. If you focus on your strengths, you become more successful,” he continued.

Speaking on the roles played by Brad Hogg and Shane Warne in his career till date, Kuldepp said, “Both play a very important role in my career. I’ve followed Shane Warne since childhood. He’s my idol. My life will be a success if I could achieve 50 per cent of what he has achieved. I stay in touch with him. I’ve been with Hogg in KKR for two seasons, I’ve learnt a lot from him as well. I still talk to Hogg on my bowling. It’s very important when you talk with senior players who have played a lot and legends in their games. Your career gets a boost even if you gain some experience from them.”

“Warne’s wrist work, flight and drift, and the way he deceives any batsman. I will be successful if I get to learn something from him. Hogg is 46 now with a career span of over 23 years. For me, it’s just the start of my career. It’s great to learn from him. All these small things are useful for me,” he added.

Kuldeep also spoke on his understanding with Chahal in the series so far. “I have a very good partnership going on with Chahal. We know each other for five years. It’s easy to understand each other’s plans. It helps on the ground if we keep talking to each others. There’s a good understanding going on between us. We bowl in partnerships in a match as well, the difference is evident. We talk about the wicket, whether it’s fast or skids. I ask him how the ball is responding on a particular wicket, and things like that. It’s very useful for me and the team,” he said.

He concluded by speaking on the upcoming second T20I against Australia at the ACA Barsapara Stadium in Guwahati on Tuesday, which would be the first international match at this newly built stadium. “We were welcomed with traditional culture. It is very overwhelming to experience different cultures of the country. Every part of India has a different culture,” he concluded.
