The 28-year-old India National Cricket Team left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav has revealed that he has been trying to get a bit quicker without making any compromises with the spin.

The left-arm wrist spinner bagged four wickets in six overs on the introduction and found turn with bounce. Kuldeep finished his spell on Day 2 with the figures of 10-3-33-4.

Speaking after the match, Kuldeep Yadav said that he was initially nervous, but after a few overs, he got comfortable and enjoyed his bowling. He stated:
“I was a bit nervous, I was very lucky to get the first wicket in the first over. Got the momentum back. After a couple of overs, I started feeling well, mixed my pace and variations, tried both the angles – over the wicket and round the wicket. I was getting proper turn, I was actually loving it. After I got injured, I started working on my rhythm after the injury, trying to be a bit quicker – that’s helping me a lot. I am not compromising with the spin.”

“When I was batting, I thought that there was not much in it for the spinners” – Kuldeep Yadav
On Day 2, Shreyas Iyer got out for 86, but Ravichandran Ashwin and Kuldeep Yadav had an amazing 87-run partnership that helped India reach 404. Ashwin scored brilliant 58 runs and Kuldeep Yadav amassed good 40 runs.
Meanwhile, the 28-year-old said that he was comfortable while batting on Day 2 and thought there was not much help for the spinners on the surface.
“When I was batting, I thought that there was not much in it for the spinners. I didn’t face any discomfort while batting. I thought it’ll be good for batting. When you’re a wrist-spinner bowling with the Kookaburra ball, you’ll definitely get turn and bounce on such wickets.”
At stumps on Day 2, Bangladesh were at 133/8 in 44 overs with Mehidy Hasan Miraz and Ebadot Hossain not out and they were still 271 runs behind.
