Shane Warne Compared Kuldeep With Pak’s Yasir Shah, Got Angry Reactions From Pakistanis

The Australian cricket team has lost the ODI series against India by 1-4 and Indian spinner Kuldeep Yadav has played an important role in their defeat. The left-arm unorthodox spinner was so brilliant in his bowling that Australian batsmen find it difficult even playing him, leave alone scoring runs freely on his bowling.

The Australian leggie Shane Warne whom Kuldeep considers as his idol also got impressed with the 22 years old spinner. He took to twitter and praised him, “Was a pleasure to meet young Kuldeep when I was last in India. I really enjoy watching him bowl & cause confusion, even against Oz #INDvAUS”

Shane went on to make another tweet for appreciating Kuldeep but it made Pakistani cricket fans angry as he tweeted that if Kuldeep keeps bowling patiently, he will be in a position to challenge Pakistan’s Yasir Shah.

Here’s what he tweeted, “If young Kuldeep remains patient when he’s bowling in all forms then he could challenge Yasir as the best leg spinner in the world & quickly”

Kuldeep welcomed Shane’s advice and wrote, “Will keep it in mind, thanks @ShaneWarne see you soon !”

This is how Twitter reacted after Shane compared Kuldeep with Yasir:

Bingo:

It’s all because of you, Warne:

Right!

Big compliment:

However, there were few who criticized this comparison:

No comparison between them:

Yasir is better!

While few had a different thought:

And this sensible comment:

Yasir Shah took 150 wickets in just 27 test matches which placed him on the position of the second fastest bowler to take 150 wickets. He is sharing this position with a legend of his own country, i.e., Waqar Younis. Yasir’s performance in England was deadly as he took two five-wicket hauls and one ten-wicket haul.

The world’s fastest bowler to take 150 wickets is South Africa’s Sydney Barnes and he accomplished this achievement in just 23 test matches. Shane Warne is himself one of the best spinners of world cricket and he took 708 wickets in test matches and 293 wickets in ODI.

Do you think that Shane is right about Kuldeep Yadav?
