Virender Sehwag feels Kuldeep Yadav deserves more praise for his performance after he picks up four wickets against England

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 25 Feb 2024, 06:56 pm

Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag has praised spinner Kuldeep Yadav for his performance and said he deserves more hype and credit from fans for his consistency.

Yadav picked up four wickets and R Ashwin took five to help India bowl out England for 307 runs, bringing back India sharply in the game.

India finished off the day's play with 40 runs without any loss of a wicket, needing 152 runs more to win the match.

Appreciating his performance, Sehwag posted on X: "When it comes to hype, one of the least hyped guys is Kuldeep Yadav."

"Been exceptional for many years, but never got a online fan club or people to hype him as the next big thing. Deserves a lot more credit and hype than he gets," he said.

The ongoing Test match witnessed a skilled performance by wicket-keeper Dhruv Jurel who helped India in the first innings when England bowlers dominated the proceedings.

Jurel scored 90 runs with the willow.

Sehwag earlier posted on X: "Not to degrade or demean anyone, but hype should be on performance and be equal. Some guys have bowled brilliantly, some have batted exceptionally but haven’t got the hype they deserve. Akash Deep was outstanding here, Yashasvi has been brilliant through the series and so was Sarfaraz at Rajkot and Dhruv Jurel in all his opportunities. Hype sabko karo."
