Kuldeep Yadav Stuns Iftikhar Ahmed With A Ripper

Kuldeep Yadav has tilted the game in India’s favor against Pakistan in the ongoing match 12th of the ICC World Cup 2023. The match is taking place at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, which is jam-packed, and the hosts have set the crowd on fire with their performances. 

Pakistan after being asked to bat first, batted well in the start. But with the way India have made a comeback in the game, it has been one to applaud. Kuldeep Yadav has been the key architect behind that as he has spun the web around the batters and put his team at the top. 

The delivery that got Iftikhar Ahmed was an absolute peach from Kuldeep Yadav as the batter had no clue about it. The leg-spinner bowled a tossed-up delivery, that was googly, outside the leg stump. The batter tried to play a sweep and leaned to attempt it. 

As he attempted the sweep shot, he played a bit early and the bat ended up coming around. The ball from Kuldeep Yadav took the glove and deflected onto the leg stump. Here’s the video: 

Iftikhar Ahmed looked stunned after he got out. He didn’t know what happened. The Pakistan batter couldn’t make a bigger impact as he was back in the hut for just 4 runs. With his wicket, the team lost their 5th wicket and were down and dusted. 

If this was not enough, Jasprit Bumrah came into the attack and did further damage. He picked two wickets in Mohammad Rizwan (49) and Shadab Khan (2) with two staggering balls. Pakistan were left tottering at 171/7.

Apart from removing Iftikhar Ahmed, Kuldeep Yadav also removed Saud Shakeel as well. He trapped him in lbw as bowled a flighted delivery that was on leg stump. The batter was pressing back and the ball dipped on him, turned to beat the bat. 

Saud Shakeel managed just 6 runs. Kuldeep Yadav had a brilliant outing with the ball as he picked two wickets and was economical as well. In his quota of 10 overs, he returned with the figures of 2/35. His spell in the middle overs put India in the driving seat.
