Kuldeep Yadav odds
The glorious history of India is filled with many great spinners, but there are not too many like Kuldeep Yadav.
Yadav made history when he became the first chinaman bowler to play international cricket for India and has not looked back since, becoming a weapon in all three formats.
Incredibly Yadav’s story started with him being a pace bowler in Uttar Pradesh, but after a chance suggestion from his coach, who saw spinning potential in his talented player, Yadav was trained in that art of spin and found a different way to fulfil his cricketing dreams.
