Kuldeep Yadav will bag four wickets and pick the Man of the Match during the 1st ODI at Hyderabad feels Aakash Chopra. The former India cricketer feels Kuldeep Yadav has it in him and he will shine. The chinaman has been India’s leading spinner in all the three formats in recent times and Aakash Chopra seems to be happy to put his money on the youngster. His post read, “Four wickets for Kuldeep today. Hopefully, a Man of The Match performance.”
Meanwhile, after the T20 series debacle, the five-match ODI rubber will be India’s last chance to fine-tune their skills ahead of the showpiece 50-over event in England & Wales, starting on May 30. For India, this also means finding the best possible way to give as much game time as possible to those who they view as reserves – players 12 to 15 in the 15-man squad in England.
The team is slowly moving into the World Cup mode and even a 0-2 loss in the just-concluded T20 series won’t see any shift in plans as far as skipper Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri are concerned. “Every team will look to fine-tune whatever they need to before the World Cup, and we’ll keep doing that in the ODI series too, but we still want to win every match we play,” skipper Kohli said after the Bengaluru T20 loss headlining his intention.
