England batsmen had no answer to left-arm chinaman Kuldeep Yadav, as the spinner bamboozled the English batting line-up with five wickets to his name.

Yadav single-handedly brought down the power-packed line-up with his variations. The 23-year-old began his spell on a positive note by only conceding 5 runs in his very first over.

The spinner proceeded to destruction mode after getting the hang of the conditions at Old Trafford. Alex Hales was Kuldeep Yadav’s first victim after which Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root and England captain Eoin Morgan made their way back to the pavilion in a single over.

The Kolkata Knight Riders spinner finished his spell on a high after dismissing the dangerous Jos Buttler for 69, thereby ending with terrific figures of 5-24.

In the process, Yadav managed to shatter several records which includes being the only the second bowler in Indian history to pick 3+ wickets in 3 consecutive outings.

Here’s how the Twitterati reacted to a memorable spell of bowling
