Former Indian first-class cricketer, Padmakar Shivalkar has come out and expressed that he is mighty impressed with the way young Kuldeep Yadav is shaping up for India. 

Shivalkar, having played close to 20 seasons for 'Bombay' and picked 589 first-class wickets in 124 games, knows a thing or two about the beautiful art of left-arm spin and he likes the accuracy and control Kuldeep Yadav has over his deliveries. 

He was recently quoted telling PTI, "I have not seen much of Kuldeep. If he is getting so many wickets, he must be having control over the ball, that's the main thing. When does a bowler become successful - first (because of) his accuracy. He has a particular loop and without giving loop nothing happens," 

"The leg-spin which he (Kuldeep) bowls, he does not turn much, but he just uses his fingers over the ball and releases it. Since he has accuracy, nobody must be taking chances against him," 

"They (the Indian team) have got a big option (in Kuldeep and Chahal) and they must take benefit of it, if they have to win (matches). They get wickets on good tracks. They are accurate, have loop and everyone gets foxed by their loop,"
