India wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav has swung the momentum back in his team’s favour during the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024 clash against Australia at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in Gros Islet, St Lucia. Australia appeared to be cruising in their chase of 206 runs, with skipper Mitchell Marsh (37) and Travis Head laying a solid foundation with some brutal stroke play.

Even after Marsh’s dismissal, Australia’s aggressive approach continued as Glenn Maxwell came out firing, hitting magnificent shots all over the park. However, Kuldeep Yadav turned the game around for India with a brilliant delivery that left Maxwell clueless. On the first ball of the 14th over, Kuldeep bowled a loopy, full delivery.

Maxwell, looking to continue his onslaught, charged down the wicket for a big slog across the line but missed entirely. The ball sailed past his bat and crashed into the stumps, sending Maxwell back to the pavilion.

Glenn Maxwell’s premature walk down the pitch exposed his intentions too early. Kuldeep Yadav, quick to read the situation, adjusted his delivery perfectly to outfox the aggressive batter. This crucial wicket of Maxwell, who had looked dangerous, helped India regain control of the game.
