Chinaman spinner Kuldeep Yadav has stated that he doesn’t have any mystery ball up his sleeves and will focus on getting his basics right to place the deliveries on correct areas against the Australians. The UP spinner has also heaped praise on the guidance of Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni to him excel.

Yadav has previously played against Australia in the Dharmasala Test earlier this year where he took four wickets and gave away 91 runs in 28 overs. However, the 22-year-old believes that the Kangaroos will be under pressure to counter him despite being acquainted with his style of bowling.
He said, “I have no worries as long as I turn the ball both ways if I flight or deceive the batsman… I am not bowling any mystery ball, my basics are normal and hence I like to keep things simple. Yes, they might start picking me better but if I can keep bowling in the correct areas then I will keep troubling the batsman.”
Despite having many variations in his arsenal that includes the effective flipper, Yadav believes that chinaman delivery is his strongest suit and he falls back to it whenever in doubt or under attack.
He said, “I have been learning all the variations since my childhood and now my aim is to control them. I always back my strength which is my chinaman delivery. They are useful when the batsman tends to attack but when I am under pressure I always back my chinaman delivery to get me wickets.”
The boy from Kanpur also revealed how skipper Virat Kohli and Mahendra Singh Dhoni have helped him to express himself without many worries and providing him crucial insights at every step.
