Kuldeep: Learnt flipper from Warne

26 March, 2017, 00:49 | Author: Joy Garcia

Shane Warne has played an unwitting hand in Australia's struggles in the fourth cricket test against India. Nearly inevitably, Smith wasn't much chop with the ball but, instead, impressed batting in the lower-order.

This was his third ton of the series - he had scored a century in the first Test in Pune and another in the third Test in Ranchi.

Every Australian batsman, bar Smith, was flummoxed by the Chinaman bowler. "It took a few balls to get used to". The 111 that Smith made is only further testimony to his class. Fast forward four years and Smith has already become an all-timer, a status growing with each astounding performance and at just 27 years old, incredibly, the best could be yet to come.

Winning the toss and batting first, Smith in the company of David Warner gave Australia a strong platform for the rest to cash in on.

It's his third century of the series in a country that has cruelled so many halcyon Australian batsmen of yesteryear.

In the next over, Umesh Yadav pushed one through Matt Renshaw's gate and pegged back his off-stump to dismiss the opener for one.

"Did you see the first wicket?"

Wade, who contributed 57 to his team's total, was full of praise for Smith in an end-of-day news conference.

As the who's who of cricketing world lined up to hail the achievement of India's new spin sensation Kuldeep Yadav, Twitter rockstar and former India batsman Virender Sehwag came up with the most interesting yet amusing tweet. This comment from a fan perfectly summed up the feeling that Australia captain Steve Smith is generating during this Test tour to India.

Smith and Warner then took control.

Right now, however, Australia are in a dogfight in the fourth Test after wasting Smith's golden innings.

"It looks that easy for him", Wade said. "You look at the scoreboard and before you know, he is on 50".

And then, Kuldeep said something that indicated maturity beyond his years.

The extra bounce also helped his cause as Warner after doing all hardwork tried to play a cut shot close to his body only to find that the delivery bounced wee bit more to take a thickish edge to Rahane at first slip. "(Australia were) one for 140, so after lunch you hope to push but credit to the Indians who bowled really well through the middle session", he told reporters. "I feel they were very, very good; they were very calm and went about their work". Still feels like I am playing Ranji Trophy.

"Today, I was backing my skills and the variations I have". What happened next was going to make headlines of the next day's newspaper.
