Kuldeep Yadav shines as hosts limit Smith's men to 300

Kuldeep Yadav shines as hosts limit Smith's men to 300

The 22-year-old chinaman bowler from Uttar Pradesh spun a web around the Aussies in Dharamsala and returned with figures of four for 68 in 23 overs after Australia chose to bat in the fourth Test and made a resounding start.

The Australia skipper's Test average now stands at a sparkling 61.57, bettered only by former colleague Adam Voges (61.87) and the iconic Don Bradman (99.94) among those to have batted in a minimum of 20 innings.

He also revealed he had learnt some tricks of the trade from none other than Aussie spin legend Shane Warne, after scripting a memorable debut against Australia in Dharamsala. "So learning from Warne and then getting out his countryman is a nice feeling", Kuldeep replied cheekily as everyone had a hearty laugh.

Shane Warne has played an unwitting hand in Australia's struggles in the fourth cricket test against India.

Brandin Cooks says he didn't ask to be traded
Now in New England, Brandin Cooks just wants to do his job and do the best he can. Payton and Patriots coach Bill Belichick are friends.

In fact, India head coach Anil Kumble took Kuldeep to Warne ahead of the first Test between India and Australia in Pune. When I met him, it was a dream come to true to meet and talk to my idol, learning from him. I did exactly what he told me to do. "Now he has promised me to meet again and hold a training session with me".

India would be made to face just one Josh Hazlewood over before stumps ending on 0/0 after the quick bowled a maiden.

The 22-year-old churned-in a great debut performance and struck at a time when a Team India side, void of their injured skipper Virat Kohli, were struggling after Australia opener David Warner and skipper Steve Smith posted a 134-run partnership for the second wicket to give the visitors a great start.

While he was a fan of Akram in his younger days, Kuldeep started to appreciate the art of spin bowling once he started bowling chinaman himself.

Six year after his overthrow, Egypt's Hosni Mubarak is freed from
Mubarak, who ruled Egypt since the 1952 abolition of the monarchy, became president in 1981 after Anwar Sadat's assassination. The 88-year-old leader ruled Egypt for 30 years but was overthrown after an 18-day revolt that began on January 25, 2011.

Praising captain Steve Smith, who got his third century of the series, Wade termed him to be the best player in the world.

Wade also said Kuldeep's variety made the debutant hard to counter. Kuldeep was always touted as the next big thing in Indian cricket and on the first day of the Test he lived up to his reputation by picking up four wickets. I showed him I was bowling the wrong 'un, but bowled the chinaman.

As wickets kept falling, it was clear that it will be up to Smith to get a daddy-hundred and help them get a 350 plus score. "It took a few balls to get used to it", Wade added. However, he found his groove after lunch when he bamboozled the Australian batsmen left, right and centre.

Australia's wicketkeeper-batsman Matthew Wade, when asked if Smith was batting on another planet, said: "Yeah, he is".

MI trails OR at halftime
Now, it's first among all remaining teams, and the gap of 6.2% between them and the Oregon Ducks is quite significant. The second, a win over Louisville that introduced the nation to the Wolverines' German sensation, Moritz Wagner .

"I suppose a little bit yeah", Wade said.
