Kuldeep Yadav was the man who walked away with the limelight on the day 4 of the Sydney Test. The Chinaman bowler snapped his first fifer on the Australian soil and thus equalled a 64-year-old record. He went on to equal the record of England’s Johnny Waddle who had achieved his feat in 1955. The netizens hailed the feat and showered heaps of praises on the youngster. The youngster became the second left-arm spinner to have a five-wicket haul in Australia. The feat was hailed by any former cricketers including Shane Warne, Harbhajan Singh, Suresh Raina and many others.
