Young Indian spinner Kuldeep Yadav has praised the exceptional performances of fast bowlers Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj, attributing India’s flawless beginning in the 2023 ICC World Cup. India has initiated the Cricket World Cup on a high note and they have won four back-to-back matches in the tournament so far.
Skipper Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have played brilliantly in this tournament so far and apart from them, bowlers have also done their job to the fullest for the team.
India’s bowlers have been outstanding and grabbed a total of 36 wickets in the four matches they’ve played. They successfully restricted both Australia and Pakistan to scores of under 200 runs and secured eight wickets each against Afghanistan and Bangladesh. This remarkable bowling performance has played an important role in India’s perfect record in the tournament.
“It’s very important to start off very well with the first Powerplay. Jasprit and Siraj have done really well,” India spinner Kuldeep Yadav told the ICC
“Not just giving us wickets, but probably just containing the runs as well (for) when me and Jaddu bhai (Ravindra Jadeja) come to bowl.”
“We’ve always got one or two wickets, only today (against Bangladesh) we felt that they got a very good start.”
Bumrah, Siraj and Hardik Pandya have been the pillars of fast bowling. However, Pandya got an injury in the match against Bangladesh and will not be participating in the playing XI for the match against New Zealand.
Kuldeep Yadav also talked about Ravindra Jadeja and him regarding their strategy for the upcoming matches.

“We’re just working on length and we’re keeping it very simple, me and Jaddu bhai,” Kuldeep said.
“We’re getting good wickets as well, but it’s very important to keep it very simple and just maintain that in every game, that’s very important.”
“If you pick an early wicket in the middle overs, definitely it gives you confidence and it just controls the run rate as well.”
