Team India bowler Kuldeep Yadav displayed his bowling brilliance during the third ODI against Australia on Wednesday, March 22 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. He played a key role for the hosts with the ball, picking up three wickets in the match. The spinner left Alex Carey stunned, as he dismissed him with absolute beauty.
In the thirty-ninth over, Kuldeep Yadav bowled a length delivery pitching around the leg stump. Alex Carey tried to defend it with an open-faced bat. However, the delivery turned away sharply, beating the outside edge of Carey’s bat and rattling the stumps. The Australia wicket-keeper batter was left shocked, getting bowled for 38 runs off 46 deliveries. He slammed two boundaries and a six during the innings.
