Former Pakistan off-spinner Saqlain Mushtaq is mighty impressed with India's young sensation Kuldeep Yadav, who followed his excellent performance in England during the limited overs leg of the tour, with a maiden 5-fer in the second innings of the first Test against the West Indies at Rajkot.

Having been simply brilliant in the ODI and T20I formats for India, Kuldeep has started to exhibit his class and more importantly, better understanding of what is required in the first-class game. 

He came back from a slightly disappointing first inning, where he went for 62 from his 10 overs and got just one wicket, and simply befuddled the Caribbean batsman through his flight, guile and deep in a super spell, which culminated with figures of 5-57 from his 14 overs. 

Kuldeep could very well be an integral part of the Indian team across all formats and conditions, and that is why he is capturing everyone's imagination. There is praise coming from around the world but Kuldeep will definitely cherish it more, when it is via a master of the craft. 

Saqlain took to the social media network Twitter and posted, "Many congratulations to  @imkuldeep18 I have been watching him closely, his outstanding performance not only in England, but now taking 5 wickets with his amazing spin attack against West Indies. There is a special talent in him & a bright future of Indian cricket @BCCI ????"
