Wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav (3-34) has credited MS Dhoni for his success in his first outing on South African soil, saying the former skipper eased 50 per cent of his workload by giving him some useful advice.

"I was confused a bit what I should bowl because I am playing in South Africa for the first time. The wind was good and the ball was drifting so I was confused what to bowl, and which variation to use. "So I was asking Mahi bhai (Dhoni) and he told me, 'Bowl as you are bowling'. It is good that he keeps advising us from behind the wickets, it gets easier," said Yadav.
