Chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav was pleased with his performance after clinical show against Ireland in the first of Two matches T20 International series in Dublin on Wednesday.

On Wednesday, India started their United Kingdom tour on a positive note with a comprehensive 76-run victory over the hosts in their first game. Batting first, riding on openers Shikhar Dhawan (74) and Rohit Sharma’s (97), India put up a massive total of 208 runs for the loss of 5 wickets in 20 overs. Ireland was restricted at the score of 132 for 9. India’s spin duo Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal shared seven wickets between themselves.

Talking about the game, Kuldeep Yadav at the post-match conference said, “It was a good start…batsmen scored the runs. So, it became easier to bowl, as there was a target of over 200 to defend. Individually, it was a good game for me as the ball was coming out like I wanted to, variations were also coming out well. So it was a good start. Conditions were normal. The wicket was a touch slow and the ball also was turning. So, I was feeling normal, it didn’t feel any different.”

Talking about his bowling style, Kuldeep said that every bowler has their own methods. “It depends on the style of bowling, my style is different. I always look for wickets and give breakthroughs to my team. That is my style. But each bowler has his own style of bowling. I always look for wickets,” Kuldeep said.

The 23-year-old spinner also had encouraging words for the hosts. “They played our fast bowlers pretty well but struggled against the spinners,” he said.

“They did use their feet, but did not show much footwork. We vary the pace, bowl slow, and (I can understand) they possibly are not used to such kind of bowling, but the more they play they will get better,” Kuldeep concluded.
