Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal together form India's lethal spin attack

Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal together form India's lethal spin attack”

"Wrist-spinners are mostly attacking but when your captain is so attacking, you get freedom to attack more", Chahal said after India beat Australia by 26 runs under Duckworth-Lewis method in the first ODI in Chennai. His 3/30 included the key scalp of Glenn Maxwell and propelled India to a comfortable victory.

Together with chinaman Kuldeep Yadav, the latest wrist-spinner duo accounted for half the Australian side. No longer able to scruff up the ball in time, fast bowlers had to make do without the impact of reverse-swing. Both of us go for the wickets from the start, because you win a match by taking wickets and not shying away from it.

"We don't think a lot about what's happening around". If he bowls first, I tell him where the ball is spinning from and how we can get him out. We bowled well, so whether it's a new or old ball, it doesn't matter. Because we both look for wickets, there is no point in playing safe. "You don't win matches that way", he added. "If from a different end there is a bowler, he gets a chance", he said.

However, he also went on to admit, "There was something in the wicket, so we too had an advantage". We had to change our lines. "We kept bowling wide outside off-stump, so if he had to hit, he would have to hit on the offside because he is strong on the leg side".

But, Chahal said that there was no pressure. Chahal also mentioned how Kohli and MS Dhoni's advices helped him to get wickets at regular intervals. The leggie, who plays for Haryana in the domestic circuit, said Kohli and Mahendra Singh Dhoni also told him to bowl outside off. "Kuldeep's deliveries come in". Chahal also explained how Dhoni played a crucial role in getting wickets, "Mahi bhai and Virat bhai asked me to push it outside and keep checking his feet".

If it was Hardik Pandya who lifted India from the ashes with his blistering 86, Yuzvendra Chahal defended the reduced total of 164 well. If we reached 230-240 and there was turn, we had Kuldeep and Kedar bhai.

"In the aftermath of Australia's 26-run defeat in the game, Smith had claimed that the reason behind the visitors" faulty chase was the use of a new ball from both ends on a pitch which was conducive to bowling. In the end, we bowled quite well.

"But the plus was that the wicket was turning and the way our medium-pacers bowled at the start helped us put pressure on them from the very beginning". Even though he pointed towards India's hard start, the 28-year old conceded that his team just "weren't good enough' during the match".
