The southpaw was constantly warming the India bench for the last three months, however, he finally managed to break into India's playing XI for the second Test.

Fans run meme riot after Kuldeep Yadav finally picks a wicket

Kuldeep's return wasn't the most memorable one as he only bowled six overs in the first innings where he gave away 16 runs and failed to pick a wicket. On the other hand, R Ashwin and Axar Patel bowled 23.5 and 20 overs respectively where they bagged five and two wickets each. The reason Ashwin and Axar bowled more overs was due to the behaviour of the pitch that was supporting finger spinners more than the wrist spinners.

Meanwhile, India defeated England by 317 runs in the second Test of the India vs England Test series 2021 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The commanding win has helped India draw the series level at 1-1 with two games to go. The third Test will be played from February 24 at the Ahmedabad new stadium in Motera. The third stadium will also be historic primarily for two reasons. It will not only be India's annual pink-ball Test but also the first game to be played at the newly-constructed world's largest cricket stadium with a reported capacity of more than 100,000.
