Kuldeep Yadav has been a striking performer on the white-ball circuit and is known to stun batters with his variations and provide India with timely breakthroughs.

Kuldeep proved his worth in the 2023 World Cup clash against England on 29th October in Lucknow as he smashed Jos Buttler’s middle stump with a magical 7.2 degrees of turn.

India, after being put into bat in the clash against England, failed to put a complete performance with the willow as they only managed 229 runs in 50 overs. Rohit Sharma was the leading run-scorer of the side, amassing 87 runs off 101 deliveries.

In reply, England were in trouble chasing 230 to win against the table toppers. They lost their first two wickets in consecutive balls from Jasprit Bumrah before Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow were both bowled by Mohammad Shami.

With Jos Buttler and Moeen Ali at the crease, Rohit Sharma turned to left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav in the 14th over.

On the first ball of the 16th over, Kuldeep bowled a good length delivery outside off stump which would have finished near the tram lines. 

However, after pitching, the ball turned sharply into the Buttler, who had already decided to play for the outside line. 

The Englishman tried to adjust to the massive turn but the delivery went past the batter’s defence, smashing the top of the middle stump. While the delivery appeared to be a peach in real-time, the commentators revealed that Kuldeep had managed to extract a 7.2-degree turn from the pitch despite dew being around. 

Kuldeep took off in celebration with his arms outstretched before he was embraced by Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul.

Buttler walked back to the dressing room with his team five down and facing a fourth consecutive loss – five in six games – at the 2023 World Cup. 

England are currently at the bottom of the table having only recorded one win from their five games so far.
