Former India opener Virender Sehwag has credited wrist spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal for Team India’s ancestral shared ODI array feat in South Africa. Sehwag pronounced this was substantially a initial time that dual bowlers have come out as a architects of India’s victories overseas. The 39-year-old Sehwag, who is India TV’s Cricket Expert, pronounced both Kuldeep and Chahal pennyless a spine of a South African group and never authorised a hosts to make a quip in a series.

“It is not an easy charge to kick South Africa in South Africa. It is a large feat for India. Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal are a biggest positives for India in a ODI series.

India’s win was set adult by 115 from opener Rohit Sharma – his initial poignant measure of a debate – and hermetic by wrist spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal, a standout bowlers in a array and consistent thorns in a side of a South African batsmen.

India’s initial success in an ODI competition in South Africa also came with a diversion to spare. The tourists could stamp their prevalence even serve with a intensity 5-1 win over a group that was ranked No. 1 during a start of a series. India are now top-ranked in ODIs and there’s no jealous that after this performance. India have won 9 true series, and final mislaid one in Australia in early 2016.

India’s array win was built on dual pivotal areas. The tip 3 of Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Kohli contributed 4 centuries, 3 half-centuries and scarcely 900 runs between them in a 5 games. And Kuldeep and Chahal totally tranquil record with their delayed bowling to share 30 wickets in 5 matches.

“Virat Kohli’s charge can be compared to Sourav Ganguly. He is a upgraded chronicle of Ganguly,” he said.

Following a beating of losing a initial dual Tests of a debate and a array 2-1, India have bounced behind to win 5 of a final 6 games between a teams in all formats.

That’s some-more like a customary of opening approaching of an India group that arrived in South Africa during a finish of Dec with a large repute underneath Kohli, arguably a best batsman in a universe opposite all forms of a game.

Sehwag, fondly called a “Nawab of Najafgarh”, also dispelled doubts over Hardik Pandya’s capabilities as an all-rounder even as a Baroda kid unsuccessful to live adult to a expectations in a ongoing ODI series.

In a 5 matches played so far, Pandya has scored only 26 runs with a bad normal of 8.66 and has taken only 3 wickets.
