Two young men from the Indian camp who wrecked havoc in the South African dressing room are the wrist spinning pair of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav.
The two leggies have made the Protean batsmen look at sea during every occasion they featured in the six-match ODI series.
In the three matches played so far, the two have managed to clinch as many as 21 wickets in between them out of the 28 wickets picked by the Indians in the bilateral series, to assert their dominance over the host.
Indian skipper Virat Kohli was full of praises for the two dynamites in the Indian arsenal currently.
“It’s outstanding to see two guys just totally spinning a web around the opposition. Credit to them. Both have been working hard on their game. Both are very brave in terms of how they bowl and the kind of fields they want as well. Hats off to them but the other debate is a bit away from now. Because wrist spinners, these guys have bowled in flatter batting tracks at home,” commented Virat Kohli, according to Cricbuzz.
“Some might think they have bowled in T20 cricket when the conditions are very, very difficult and they have picked up wickets on a regular basis you know. They’ve always, every over they’ve asked two-three questions of the batsmen, that is something outstanding.Every over they might pick up two wickets, that is the kind of belief they have in their abilities and the team has a belief in them, the team is backing them,” added the man with 55 international tons already to his name by now.
With this performance in their first premier overseas tour, the two have made it clear they are in contention for the upcoming for the ICC World Cup 2019 in England, where the likes of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja found it difficult to keep the opposition quite at the Champions Trophy.
“They might get hit for 70-odd in the next game. But there is no problem in that because you know that if they bowl attacking lines, then they will end up picking 2-3 wickets every game. Going ahead in these conditions now, and we are going to play the World Cup away from home, that I think is going to be the massive factor for us,” concluded the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli.
