Indian wrist spinner, Kuldeep Yadav unveils an incident from his Test debut match when Ex-Australian skipper Steve Smith wanted to hurt and break the ribs of Kuldeep Yadav in Dharamshala Cricket Stadium. On the show named "What The Duck" hosted by Vikram Sathaye, Kuldeep Yadav with Yuzvendra Chahal told that in his debut Test match against Australia, the skipper Smith had asked Pat Cummins to hit on his ribs. 

In his debut Test match at Dharamshala, Kuldeep Yadav took four wickets in the first innings of the game. He has formed an amazing spinning pair with Yuzvendra Chahal, both of them together have taken 82 wickets in 43 matches. They have been hunting their opponents for Indian cricket from a while now. 

While sharing the incident, Kuldeep shared that Pat Cummins actually bowled 5 to 6 deadly bouncers at him “Bowl in his ribs, so that he can’t bowl wrong ones, make his ribs hurt,” Steve Smith apparently had told Pat Cummins. 

Well, in the end, Kuldeep Yadav luckily survived Pat Cummins and went on to score 10 runs. Eventually, he got out to Nathan Lyon and India won the match.
