Former India spinner Pragyan Ojha feels Kuldeep can still be India’s match-winner with the pink-ball.

“India will miss Ravindra Jadeja’s services due to the concussion injury. Thankfully, India have someone like R Ashwin who has been doing well. In the practice games, he picked up those wickets, bowled tight lines,” Ojha told Sports Today.

He further opined, “There is one more person who can be a game-changer for India with the pink-ball is Kuldeep Yadav because, in the domestic pink-ball tournaments, he was successful. Batsmen were finding it difficult to pick him. Especially during the twilight period, batsmen were struggling to read him. That’s when he picked up maximum wickets,” Ojha added.

India begin the Test series versus Australia from December 17 in Adelaide in the Day-Night Test match.
