SA vs IND: Kuldeep Yadav tougher to face than Yuzvendra Chahal, says Shikhar Dhawan

Cape Town: India opener Shikhar Dhawan on Tuesday admitted that spinner Kuldeep Yadav was harder to read than Yuzvendra Chahal.

Dhawan was speaking ahead of the third ODI against South Africa, which takes place here on Wednesday.

The duo of Kuldeep and Chahal have shared 13 wickets among them from the two ODIs so far.

“It is difficult to play wrist-spinners because they can turn the ball on flat tracks also. And when the ball starts turning, the overseas players especially aren’t very used to it. That can create doubts in batsmen’s minds, which is why they are effective,” Dhawan said in a pre-match press conference.

“If I speak of Kuldeep and Chahal, I personally find Kuldeep harder to read, and easier to read the leg spinners. There are many who can’t read the leg spinner’s googly, so Chahal’s googly will surely fool batsmen. But speaking for myself only, I find Kuldeep tougher to read," he added.

Virat Kohli’s men will look to triple their lead in the ongoing series against the Proteas on Wednesday. The visitors posted wins in the first two matches, clinching the match by six wickets and nine wickets respectively.
