On July 3, 2018, Kuldeep Yadav took his first five-for in a T20I and became the first left-arm spinner to take five wickets in the format. Yadav's five-wicket haul in the shortest format dismantled England before KL Rahul registered an unbeaten century as India won the match by eight wickets. He was awarded the Player of the Match.

Even though India team is injury-stricken, they had plenty of options look at, for the fourth Test against Australia in Brisbane. But team management went in with four fast bowlers -- Mohammad Siraj, T Natarajan, Navdeep Saini, Shadrul Thakur, and a solitary spinner in Washington Sundar. Even though Kuldeep Yadav was available to be picked in the Test, he was overlooked for Sudar, who has better batting capabilities.

But experts and fans were shocked and gutted to see Kuldeep being left out of the playing XI. Here’s what Twitter has to say:

Meanwhile, Thangarasu Natarajan on Friday was handed his Test cap making him Test player No.300 for India, thus becoming the first Indian player to make his ODI, T20, and Test debuts in the same tour. To say Natarajan’s rise in international cricket has been stunning will be an understatement. It has been meteoric! He traveled to Australia as part of a jumbo Indian squad and with the reputation of being a T20 specialist. With 20 First-class games, 15 List-A games, and 37 T20I matches under his belt, Natarajan, who impressed in the IPL 2020 for the Sunrisers Hyderabad, would have considered lucky when he got to play the final ODI of the series after Australia had taken an unassailable 2-0 lead.
