Bangladesh vs India: “Rhythm was nowhere to be seen today”- Danish Kaneria
Danish Kaneria, a former leg-spinner for Pakistan, has questioned the physical fitness of Indian wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav. This came after Day 4 of the ongoing Chattogram Test against Bangladesh saw little success for the left-arm bowler.
When Kuldeep recorded a wicket against the hosts in the first innings, Kaneria claimed that he appeared exhausted and out of rhythm in Bangladesh vs India match. Kuldeep Yadav has very helpful variations, according to the former Test cricketer, who thinks that if he stays fit, he will develop into a devastating bowler.
“Kuldeep Yadav let me down today. He bowled brilliantly in the first innings, picked up five wickets, and bowled with rhythm. That rhythm was nowhere to be seen today. Kuldeep Yadav looked fatigued. I think there’s a slight fitness issue. When he’ll be in rhythm, he won’t allow batters to play easily because wrist spinners have a lot of variety. Kuldeep Yadav can do wonders.” Danish Kaneria said.
It’s important to note that Kuldeep Yadav bowled 17 overs on Day 4, when India only took six wickets, and only claimed the lone wicket of Litton Das. Kuldeep Yadav has previously recorded results of 5/40 in the opening innings.
The left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav will attempt to end Bangladesh’s second innings as soon as possible. The hosts’ innings will resume on Day 5 at 272/6 as they try to score 513.
