Ind vs Aus 4th Test Highlights : “Chinaman” Kuldeep Yadav made an impressive debut for India, capturing 4 for 68 as the homeside bowled out Australia to 300 on Day 1 of the Ind vs Aus 4th Test for the Border Gavaskar Trophy 2017. This was in spite of a dominating third century of the Ind vs Aus Test Series 2017 from Australian Captain Steven Smith.

The 22-year-old Kuldeep Yadav was a surprise pick, replacing Indian Captain Virat Kohli who failed a fitness test ahead of the fourth and final Test match. After a poor session in the morning with Australia smashing 131 for 1 by lunch, team India bounced back courtesy of some magic bowling from Kuldeep Yadav according to the India vs Australia 4th Test highlights of Day 1.

Kuldeep Yadav edged out David Warner for 56, who at last managed to score a fifty in the Ind vs Aus Test Series 2017, with one that turned away and kicked up in the India vs Australia Dharamsala Test.
