Indian wrist spinner, Kuldeep Yadav has warned English batsmen ahead of the second ODI match that watching his spin videos won't help them to win matches against India. After evacuating England in the first ODI match, Kuldeep Yadav has given the home batsmen a challenge to play his wrist spin in the second ODI, which is scheduled to take place on 14th July.
Kuldeep Yadav has been spectacular in this tour against England so far as he has taken 11 wickets till now. Kuldeep Yadav's exceptional performance in the first ODI led India to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match ODI series. If India wants to climb on the number 1 spot, they will have to win it 3-0 against England.
“I don’t believe in a bowling machine. If the ball is turning, and especially here in England, they are not able to comprehend it. In the bowling machine, you cannot see the hand or wrist or arm during delivery and the ball only turns. So, if you are not picking the ball (from the hand), then there is a huge problem.” Kuldeep Yadav said ahead of the second ODI match at Lord's.
“If you’re analysing someone with videos, I believe that’s the biggest mistake. If you’re doing quality bowling, if you’re keeping it on a spot and if you’re bowling on a length and getting it to turn, then it is difficult for anyone. Irrespective of how much video you watch. Yes, if you watch a video, you get an idea what type of ball the bowler is bowling. But if you’re getting help from the wicket, then it is difficult.”
England skipper, Eoin Morgan expects his team to bounce back in the second game and level the ODI series at Lords. The weather is expected to be sunny as a hot potato at Mecca of cricket.
England bowling line-up will have to put a great show against Indian batsmen as Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul have been really great on the crease.
