GUWAHATI, Oct 9: Many started to feel that India got replacement of Ashwin and Jadeja in the form of chiman bowler Kuldeep Yadav but the bowler today said that he is not thinking in the similar way.
According to Yadav, he is still very young and he didn’t think himself at per to the Ashwin and Jadeja.
Yadav along with Yuzvendra Chahal have become nightmare for Aussies and they were also instrumental in the team’s 4-1 ODI series victory against Australia. The duo were also instrumental to give India victory in the first game of the T20 series.
Talking to the media persons at the sideline of the team India’s practice session at the Assam Cricket association Stadium, Barsapara Yadav said,“ Both Ashwin and Jadeja have been consistent performers for India in all the three formats. There’s no question of thinking about replacing them”.
The spinner today also admitted that he was a great fan of spin legend Shane Warne. Replying a query he said,“ I am a great fan of Warne and he is also my idol. I have learnt a lot of things from this legend and it helped me to improve my bowling.”
He also added: “I have followed Warne since my childhood. If I become 50 percent of what he has been then my life will be successful.”.
There were several occasions in the series when Australian batsmen struggled to pick him. But the bowler today said he was not a mystery bowler. For me, it becomes easy for a bowler if his basics like alignment and accuracy are right and I am trying to stick on it.”
