Initially, when playing in a cricket academy in Kanpur, Kuldeep Yadav wanted to be a fast bowler. However, his coach persuaded him to take up wrist spin. He practiced hard with his new bowling style – left-arm unorthodox – or ‘chinaman’ as we call it. He added multiple variations including a deadly wrong’un that has bamboozled many international cricketers over the years.
