XtraTime Web Desk: After single handedly destroying the English batting lineup by taking 6 wickets in the first ODI India’s ace wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav feels that he is enjoying English conditions now.

“Definitely. I think we are getting good wickets. I think the wicket was very good to bat on. They were around 10 overs 75-plus, and we were hoping for a wicket and at the same time I was looking for a wicket. Luckily I got 3 wickets in 2 overs; that really changed the momentum for us. I am enjoying English conditions now. It is perfect for any spinner who is spinning the ball,” said Kuldeep at the post-match press conference.

On being asked about whether he was not a part of the Bristol game where India won the last T20I and created history on English soil due to shorter boundaries,” Kuldeep said,” Short boundaries have never made a difference for me. That wasn’t the reason, the wicket had a lot of grass, It looked like a batting wicket. Coach said maybe we’ll have to play only one spinner because fast bowlers have to play… plus there were new players as well who needed to be given a chance. It could’ve been any reason for the decision. It is good thing I didn’t play, that’s why today the performance was good.”
