Virat Kohli has openly expressed his fondness for wrist spinners on numerous occasions, and after gaining an unbeatable 3-0 lead in the six-match ODI series against South Africa, the India skipper feels the duo of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav will prove to be "massive X-factor" in the 2019 ICC World Cup.

"Those are things that are quite a bit away from now," Kohli said when asked of the Test chances of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal. "Look they are obviously making a very strong case for themselves, bowling in these conditions and making breakthroughs like we haven't seen before. It's outstanding to see two guys just totally spinning a web around the opposition.

There doesn't seem to be a way out at all. It's unbelievable taking eight wickets," the skipper said after the 124-run win over Proteas on Wednesday. "In these conditions now and we are going to play the World Cup away from home, that I think is going to be the massive X-factor for us," the skipper added.
