I was struggling initially, admits Kuldeep Yadav

I was struggling initially, admits Kuldeep Yadav”

You would have to be something special to keep Ravichandran Ashwin out of the side and on Thursday night Kuldeep Yadav proved beyond any doubt that he is just that and more. During the post-match presentation, Kuldeep revealed that it was wicket-keeper batsman MS Dhoni's advice that helped him get a hat-trick. The left-hand fast bowler became the first bowler to take a hat-trick in the very first over of a Test match by picking up the wickets of Pakistan's Salman Butt, Younis Khan and Mohammad Yousuf at Karachi in 2006. I was happy to share the man-of-the-match award with the legend. "I feel if we're in a different position you're going to see a different mode against the spinners or a different tempo", he added.

Pacer Cummins (1/34) and left-arm spinner Agar (1/54) also picked up a wicket each for Australia.

Harbhajan decoded Kuldeep's spell for India Today, "There was a bit of luck involved in Kuldeep's first wicket but that gave him confidence". They were discussing how they should bowl, in what line, and which kind of delivery.

Australia, who surrendered to the Indian spinners in Chennai, seemed equally helpless here with seven batsmen recording single-digit scores.

It was the youngster's second hat-trick in global cricket as he had picked up a hat-trick against Scotland in a U-19 match.

"For the hat-trick ball, I didn't think I would get a wicket if the ball spun in". It took the edge and it was a flawless catch by the master himself behind the wicket. "This is a proud moment for me, for Kuldeep and all Indian cricket fans". "I wanted to try out my variations, but was looking to land the ball in the right areas", the 22-year-old from UP said. I did not bowl well from one end and it was getting hard to grip the ball as it was getting wet. Especially when you come over here and play for the first time on the world stage against one of the best one-day teams in the world on their home park.

Young Kuldeep Yadav had a bright future ahead in the International Cricket.
