Debasis Sen, Manchester: In his very first tour of England, Indian cricket team’s star chinaman spinner Kuldeep Yadav took a five-for in the first of three-match T20I series at the Old Trafford in Manchester to help his side win the game comprehensively by 8 wickets. After a remarkable performance, Kuldeep said that he is very happy to do well in his first match on English soil and he is looking forward to do better in the next matches.

“Look it’s my first tour to England. I think it’s going quite well for me. I have never bowled to them, so it was the first time and maybe it was easy to bowl against them. Maybe after the next two games and after a while probably they will prepare very well for me. So I am looking forward to the next matches,” Kuldeep told the reporters at the post-match press conference.

While answering about what was his plan against the English batsmen, Kuldeep said,” When I started, I varied my pace. I thought if I bowl a bit slower, maybe there’d be some chances of taking wickets. When I came to bowl the second over, I kept the pace down, and increased the flight and maintained it. I maintained my length as well. After that first wicket was Eoin Morgan’s. After that, I kept going ball by ball. The plan was to stretch the batsmen, and they don’t get any easy deliveries on the ball. I didn’t want to give them any pace, because it could’ve made things easy for them. I was varying my pace.”

According to Kuldeep all five wickets were important for him. “Look all my wickets were good. Five wickets were important for the team, and all were important for me too.”
