Indian team has been on top of every game they have played in this World Cup because of Kuldeep Yadav who has been able to pick the wickets during the middle overs. The leg spinner did the same against England while defending the minimal total of 230 runs. India was on top of England’s batting lineup as Kuldeep Yadav castles Jos Buttler with an insane 7-degree turn.
The Indian team has not lost a single game this World Cup thanks to the Indian bowlers who performed as a whole. From spinners to fast bowlers the men in blue have never let their fans down in this tournament.
Against the defending champions Indian fast bowlers removed the English batting lineup with some breathtaking seam bowling. Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Shami’s pinpoint accurate bowling dismissed Dawid Malan, Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, and Ben Stokes.
After the powerplay ended Kuldeep Yadav came into the attack and bowled an absolute ripper to English captain Jos Buttler.
Kuldeep Yadav castles Jos Buttler with an unplayable delivery
Just when England were looking to build a partnership, captain Rohit Sharma introduced his best bowlers of middle overs. After reading the pitch in the first over Kuldeep Yadav straight away bowled a snotter in the first ball of his second over.

Jos Buttler who was batting on 10 runs didn’t have any answer to Kuldeep’s unplayable ball which turned right from the rough patch. The English captain was absolutely surprised after seeing the amount of turns Kuldeep got on that delivery.
Indian bowlers on fire at the Ekana Stadium
While defending the target of 230 runs Indian bowlers lit up the stadium as they demolished the English batting lineup like a pack of cards. England lost their first 4 wickets inside 10 overs courtesy of Shami and Bumrah’s fiery spell in which both of the bowlers were on a hat trick.
Then after the spinner came into play Kuldeep Yadav castles Jos Buttler with a peach of a delivery during the 16th Over. After a terrible batting collapse, Livingstone and Moeen Ali were rebuilding the English innings but then Rohit called Shami back into the attack who took the wicket on his very first ball of his second spell.
Then after that Indian bowler didn’t let any batter have their say on the pitch. England’s team failed once again to play for their pride and we might not see them play Champions trophy in 2025.
