Srinagar, July 3: Team India’s left arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav has said that it is always a challenge to bowl to Australian batsman Steve Smith and former South African cricketer AB de Villiers.

He has said that he always found tough to bowl to these two batting stars.

In a ESPNCricinfo show of Cricketbaazi with Deep Dasgupta, Kuldeep Yadav said, “Smith plays me mostly off the back foot. He plays the ball very late as well, so it becomes challenging to bowl to him”.

“In ODIs, AB de Villiers is a good player. He has a unique style. Now that he’s retired, it’s a good thing! But other than him, I haven’t found any other batsman who I am scared will hit me for a lot of runs,” he said.

About his own bad form during 2019, he said, “I prepared really well before leaving for the World Cup 2019 because I wanted to overcome my failure in IPL that year. Even though I didn’t pick up many wickets, I think I bowled well at the World Cup”.
