During the ongoing 2023 World Cup clash in Chennai, Kuldeep Yadav’s strategic brilliance paid off as he clean-bowled Glenn Maxwell for just 15 runs off 25 balls.
In the ongoing 2023 World Cup clash, Australia, opting to bat first after winning the toss at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, faced a tough start. Despite a brief partnership of 69 runs between David Warner and Steve Smith, India’s spinners, led by Ravindra Jadeja, maintained tight control.
Kuldeep Yadav dismissed Warner, and Jadeja later removed Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, and Alex Carey in quick succession. India’s Jasprit Bumrah struck early by dismissing opener Mitchell Marsh in the third over, while Jadeja continued to apply pressure through the middle overs, causing a struggle for the Australian team.
In the 36th over, Kuldeep Yadav notched his second wicket by bowling out the dangerous Glenn Maxwell. Maxwell attempted to create space by stepping back and swinging at a ball that was pitched in the middle. However, the ball spun sharply, eluding his attempted cut and crashing into his leg stump. Maxwell, visibly frustrated with his mistimed shot, departed the pitch, shaking his head in disappointment.
India, bolstered by the return of key players from injuries, appears to have the upper hand. They recently showcased their strength by winning the Asia Cup, reaffirming their strength just before the World Cup. Meanwhile, Australia, after a series of losses, found their rhythm in the final ODI at Rajkot. India’s spinners and fielding are applying significant pressure, and historically, India has defeated Australia only four times in World Cup history.
