Kuldeep Yadav is one of the best spinners in the world when it comes to white-ball cricket. No one has taken more ODI and T20I wickets than him since his debut. He even took a fifer in his Test debut in Australia in Sydney.
Now, the Indian chinaman spinner has revealed how much Shane Warne helped him during the tour Down Under. It was Ravi Shastri, who introduced Kuldeep to Warne and from there onwards, Warne helped him immensely.
“From the moment I landed in Australia, Shane Warne was there close to the team. Every morning before any match I chatted with Warne and talked about my bowling. He kept motivating me. Coach Ravi Shastri introduced me to Warne on the first day of the tour. He talked to me about the conditions in Australia and how to bowl here. There is bounce here as well,” Kuldeep told Cricketnext.
“World Cup is too far away for now. I keep speaking to Warne on phone and WhatsApp. He’ll be here for IPL as well so I look forward to talking to him once again. We have a great understanding and it feels great that a legend that you have idolized since childhood is willing to help you out so much — tell you what’s right and wrong. That makes me feel really positive,” he said.
