India vs NZ 1st T20: Kuldeep Yadav bowls with wet ball to counter dew

Chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav practised with wet ball to counter dew on the eve of the Twenty20 series-opener against New Zealand. Dew has always been prevalent whenever Indian teams play at home from October to January. Any score becomes chase-able under lights during this time of the year as bowlers find it extremely difficult to grip the ball. During the net practice session in the afternoon, Kuldeep was seen soaking the white cherry in mineral water after every second delivery. The idea was given by bowling coach Bharat Arun, who was seen discussing the strategy with the chinaman bowler. India paceman Bhuvneshwar Kumar had also adopted the same strategy to prepare himself for death bowling in the past.
