Team India is locking horns with New Zealand in the second T20I of the three-match series at the Ekana stadium in Lucknow. It is a dream wicket for a spinner when the batter gets deceived by a massive amount of drift and turn and the ball hits the stumps. Kuldeep Yadav bowled one such magical delivery against New Zealand and the unbelievable amount of spin reminded spectators of the legendary Shane Warne.

India came back strongly against New Zealand in the second game as they attempt to level the series, with the bowlers putting up a clinical performance early in the game. New Zealand chose to bat first after winning the toss but their decision turned out to be misjudged on a pitch favorable for spinners.

They were reduced to 48/4 inside 10 overs, the last of the scalps being a magic delivery from Kuldeep Yadav to send Daryl Mitchell back to the pavilion.

The left-arm leg spinner was bowling the 10th over of the game with Mitchell looking to steady the innings for the Kiwis. Kuldeep bowled a loopy bowl outside off and the batter shifted his weight onto the backfoot, hoping to tackle the spin. However, the ball spun back so sharply that it rendered all the calculations from the batter irrelevant. The ball hit timber and Twitterati was quick to compare Kuldeep with the Australian legend Shane Warne.
