India vs New Zealand 2019: Chahal, Kuldeep Completes 100 ODI Wickets
India’s spin battery of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav has completed 100 ODI wickets while playing together. Both the spinners have hunted down in tandem to breathe down the neck of the opposition batsmen. Most importantly, they have given breakthroughs in the middle overs which has helped India in skittling out the oppositions.
Kuldeep Yadav has scalped 77 wickets in 38 ODI matches whereas Yuzvendra Chahal has taken 68 wickets in the same number of matches. Kuldeep Yadav has done a fine job in the recent past.
Both the spinners have hunted down in tandem.
Yadav has been the pick of the Indian bowlers. The mystery spinner scalped four wickets in the first match of the ongoing series against New Zealand. Furthermore, he took another four-wicket haul in the second match of India vs New Zealand series. However, Kuldeep went wicketless in the ongoing third ODI of India vs New Zealand 2019.
On the other hand, Yuzvendra Chahal scalped two wickets in the third match. Chahal has bowled with great control in the recent past. The leg-spinner had scalped a six-wicket haul against Australia in the final ODI at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Chahal also took two wickets each in the first two matches of ongoing India vs New Zealand 2019 series, which India won. Consequently, both the spinners have been instrumental in the success of the India National Cricket Team. Both of them are going to hold the key for the team in the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019.
Meanwhile, the visitors have restricted the hosts to a paltry score of 243 runs, after Kane Williamson won the toss and decided to bat first. Ross Taylor top scored with 93 runs whereas Mohammed Shami took three wickets.
BCCI took to their Twitter account to congratulate the spin dual. The post read as, “That’s 100 wickets between our very own #KulCha in ODIs”.
