Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja picked up 7 wickets between them in the first ODI against the West Indies.
On Thursday, two left-arm spinners — Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja — organised the hosts’ demise, taking up 7 wickets between them. After India bowled out the West Indies for 114 runs, the hitters wasted no time in chasing the score down. Kuldeep was named Player of the Match after his 4-wicket performance. The left-arm spinner couldn’t help but be asked about his original spin-twin, Yuzvendra Chahal, at the post-match presentation ceremony.
While the Kul-Cha combo established a unique position in Indian cricket fandom with their combined performances, others found it odd to see Kuldeep teamed with Jadeja. When questioned about rivalry in the team, especially with Chahal, Kuldeep responded that a batter like that only helps players get better.
Fast bowlers made a great start. Mukesh made his debut before Shardul, Hardik, and them all got off to strong starts and followed Umran’s pace. For bowlers, it was a beautiful day. Jadeja and I were fantastic. On this surface, we struck the crucial good spots. Just going through the motions and concentrating on the beat. It’s been fantastic for the past 1.5 years. The length should be your primary concern rather than the wicket. Kuldeep Yadav said at the presenting event, “It’s turning out great.
Kuldeep dismissed aside the talk of “competition,” saying he and Chahal merely support one another and enjoy each other’s company.

I’m just doing what I always do and paying attention to the rhythm. Over the previous 1.5 years, it has been fantastic. Instead of considering the wicket, you should concentrate on length. Kuldeep Yadav said during the presenting event, “It’s turning out really well.
Kuldeep disregarded the talk of “competition,” claiming that he and Chahal merely support one another in getting better and enjoy each other’s company.
A seamen’s paradise, according to some. We are pleased with our seven outside wickets and perhaps three or four from the opposition. I thoroughly enjoyed it because it was whirling and jumping. An event of competition is always beneficial. Chahal and I don’t discuss the rivalry, especially during ODIs. In the longer format, collaboration is essential. Naturally, when you also have a senior figure like Chahal offering you assurance. also offers you a great deal of advice. We have been performing effectively as a team for the past five or six years. We are enjoying each other’s company; there is no competition, Kuldeep said.
Kuldeep would need to continue producing similar performances if he is to remain in the World Cup 2023 squad plans after his 4-wicket haul on Thursday.
