Kuldeep Yadav Turns Commentator For His Own Bowling

India crushed Windies by a record margin of an innings and 272 runs in the Rajkot Test and almost every player came up with the goods in the match. The left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav too turned on the heat with his maiden five-wicket haul in the second innings and helped India register a thumping victory.

After India made short work of their opponents, the ever-reliable spinner Kuldeep was seen donning the hat of a commentator — for his own bowling.

In a video shared by the BCCI, Kuldeep is seen commentating on his five-wicket haul footage in front of his laptop in his hotel room.

After a rather ordinary display in England recently, Kuldeep returned figures of 5 for 57 in the match. The feat meant that he is only the second Indian bowler after Bhuvneshwar Kumar and seventh in the world to bag a fifer in all the formats of the game.

"It's very difficult to bowl with the red ball, coming from white-ball cricket. It takes time to adjust. I adjusted in the second innings according to the wicket and the batsman," Kuldeep had said at the post-match presentation.

"When you start doing well in red-ball (cricket), everything works well. I spoke to the coach (Ravi Shastri) and he asked me to try bowling from around the wicket," the chinaman added.
