Kuldeep finished the innings with three wickets, dismissing the likes of Rohit Sharma, Anmolpreet Singh, and Kieron Pollard. He conceded only 18 runs at an economy rate of 4.5 in his four overs. Kuldeep’s performance helped Delhi Capitals to control the Mumbai Indians scoring rate.
Rohit Sharma’s wicket was very important: Kuldeep Yadav
Kuldeep Yadav expressed that he is happy with his performance against the Mumbai Indians. Speaking at the mid-innings break, Kuldeep stated that he keep varying his pace, to unsettle the batters. He said:
“I am very happy. My lengths were good. I have been working really hard and have been talking to Ricky Ponting. Before this also I have been talking to Rohit bhai. I haven’t changed much in my bowling. The variation in pace was because I was in good rhythm.”
The Delhi Capitals spinner also stated that Rohit Sharma’s wicket was very important. The Mumbai Indians skipper looked in great touch before Kuldeep sent him back in the pavilion.
“Rohit’s wicket was very important. Even Pollard’s wicket was very important as there were still four overs to go when he got out. The wicket is a good one. I was varying my lengths as I knew batters can step out and play it easily here,” said Kuldeep Yadav.
