It’s important because we use our variations well together and that’s why batsmen get confused and we get so many wickets. We got many wickets in South Africa, India and now we have started well in New Zealand,” Kuldeep said.advertisementMUST WATCH: @imkuldeep18 makes his debut on @yuzi_chahal TV.On our latest episode of Chahal TV, we bring you “KULCHA” served hot straight from Kiwi Land – by @RajalArora #TeamIndia #NZvINDFull Video here https://t.co/cXvXGDen0A pic.twitter.com/l00E772zPj BCCI (@BCCI) January 23, 2019Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal were sensational in South Africa in 2018 with 33 wickets between them.Virat Kohli was impressed with his spin twins after a clinical win on Wednesday. “The lines and lengths bowled by the spinners were brilliant because the pitch only slowed down in the second half and they were really good.”Also Read | Watch: Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni find a unique way to celebrate India’s victory over New ZealandAlso Read | Virat Kohli overtakes Brian Lara, storms into top 10 of leading ODI run-scorersAlso Read | He will close his eyes and defend: How Dhoni masterminded Boult dismissalAlso Read | #10YearChallenge What changed for India between Hamilton 2009 and Napier 2019Also Read | Virat Kohli rested for last two ODIs and T20I series vs New Zealand, Rohit Sharma to leadFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
