Kuldeep Yadav’s Humble Gesture Honors Ashwin’s 100th Test

Kuldeep Yadav’s Humble Gesture Highlights Respect for Senior Ashwin

In a heartwarming display of respect and camaraderie, left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav deferred to his senior teammate Ravichandran Ashwin to lead the Indian team off the field after the first day of the fifth Test against England in Dharamshala.

Yadav had been the star performer for India, claiming a five-wicket haul to bowl out England for 218. However, he showed immense humility by asking Ashwin, who had taken four wickets in his 100th Test, to lead the team off.

Ashwin, known for his team-first attitude, initially declined the offer and tossed the ball back to Yadav. But after some gentle persuasion from Mohammed Siraj, Ashwin relented and allowed Yadav to take the honor.

The moment was captured on video by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and shared on social media. It showcased the deep respect and admiration that Yadav has for Ashwin, who has been a mentor and guide to him throughout his career.

Later, when asked about the incident, Yadav revealed that Ashwin had already collected 35 balls and asked him to keep the one he had taken. This gesture further highlighted the bond between the two spinners and the importance of senior players in the Indian team.

Yadav’s humble act has been widely praised by fans and experts alike. It is a reminder of the values of respect and humility that are deeply ingrained in Indian cricket culture. It also serves as a testament to the strong bond between the players in the Indian team, who are united by a common goal of success.
