HE MAY have become India’s latest spin sensation but chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav says he is not thinking about being seen as Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja’s replacement.

India’s ploy of playing two wrist spinners has worked well in the limited overs series against Australia, as Yadav along with Yuzvendra Chahal have been instrumental in the team’s 4-1 ODI series win, and a 1-0 advantage in the ongoing three-match T20I series.

“I don’t think of that far. Both Ash and Jaddu bhai have been consistent performers for India in all the three formats. There’s no question of thinking about replacing them,” Yadav told reporters on the eve of the second T20I here.
“We are very young, and there’s a lot of cricket left in us. It has never cross my mind,” the 22-year-old added.

The Aussies has struggled to pick Yadav time and again but the chinaman spinner said he was not a mystery bowler.
“I’m not a mystery bowler who will bowl from different hands. Obviously after two-three years they will pick you and it becomes easy for them. For me, if your basics like alignment and accuracy are right, it becomes easy for you.”
