India's one of the most successful batsman Sachin Tendulkar surprised everyone with his birthday wish for the Chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav. Yadav turned 24 on Friday and he received wishes from his fans and admirers but Sachin's tweet stood out.
Sachin posted the birthday wish in Chinese with the message - “A message in Chinese for A Chinaman bowler”.
Kuldeep is currently in Australia as part of the Indian Test squad but he is yet to get a game. India is playing the second Test against Australia in Perth and despite R Ashwin being rested for the game, Kuldeep wasn't even included in the 13-man list before the game.
In the Perth Test on Day 1, Australia were 277/6 at stumps. Marcus Harris (70) and Travis Head (58) added helpful half-centuries. Pat Cummins (11) and skipper Tim Paine (16) will continue their innings tomorrow as India will look to wrap things up early.
All the six wickets fell in the post-lunch session. India was wicket-less in the first session. Speedster Ishant Sharma and part-time spinner Hanuma Vihari claiming two each. Fast bowlers Jasprit Bumrah and Umesh Yadav bagged one wicket each.
