Former South African captain Shaun Pollock has wished India's only chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav well as he embarks on his international career.
"He is an exciting talent. Unorthodox spinners always bring excitement. He was called for a trial at Mumbai Indians by Rahul Sanghvi. I was excited by what he was able to produce," said Pollock who coached and mentored MI.
"Sometimes a young chinaman takes many years to settle down and be effective. He has made very good and fast progress, and most importantly is bowling his deliveries a touch quicker than when I first met him. I wish him well on his international career," Pollock said.
Meanwhile, Kuldeep's father Ram Singh yadav told mid-day: "We wished him luck and advised him to focus only on his game and never fall prey to pressure. We told him to play his natural game. We feel Diwali has come early and all of us are excited."
