Kuldeep’s ability to get wickets is one of the main factors which has given India the edge in the middle overs, and it is an essential part of the innings in a 50-over match.

 

Kuldeep Yadav’s ascent in restricted overs cricket since making his debut in 2017 has been outstanding. The left-arm wrist spinner has assumed a significant job alongside spin partner Yuzvendra Chahal, in aiding Virat Kohli’s team to become one of the most consistent and effective teams throughout the entire existence of the 50-over match. The way to Kuldeep’s success has been his ability to get wickets, which has given India the edge in the middle overs, the most essential part of the innings in a 50-over match. On Wednesday, when Kohli and his men take the field against West Indies in the third and result maker  ODI, Kuldeep will make his efforts to add a major record to his kitty.

Kuldeep Yadav has 96 wickets to his name in 53 ODIs and just four-wickets will enable him to turn into the quickest Indian to take 100 ODI wickets. He at one point was about to turn into the quickest to the 100-wicket mark on the world, yet a fairly baffling excursion during the 2019 ICC World Cup, 6 wickets in 7 matches, implied he missed out on the chance.

Kuldeep, however, can at present beat Mohammed Shami’s record (56 matches) of being the quickest to 100 ODI wickets for India on the off chance that he gets these four wickets either in this match or in the following one. In his short span, Kuldeep has just gotten four 4-wicket hauls and one 5-wicket haul.
