Muralitharan hails spin duo Chahal and Kuldeep

Chennai: Legendary Sri Lankan cricketer Muttiah Muralitharan lauded India’s wrist spin twins Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal, who have played a stellar role country’s success in the ODI format for the past two years.

The iconic spinner though believes their success in England will depend on the conditions during June-July. “You have got two good wrist spinners in India right now and the Indian selectors are also confident of their ability based on their impressive performance. There are hardly any wrist spinners in other countries. The other countries can’t copy India.


“But how good Kuldeep and Chahal will be at the World Cup, will depend on the conditions. England pitches in June and July usually assists swing bowling,” he said.

Also, he said England is doing well in the one-day internationals while Australia was no longer the team it was. “England is doing really well in ODIs. Australia has become weak and is no longer the team it once was,” the 46-year-old, who is also the top wicket-taker in ODIs, added.
