India spin duo Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal became a part of a unique training exercise designed by bowling coach Ramakrishnan Sridhar. In a video uploaded by the BCCI on their official website, the two were seen trying to hit a single stump using their wrong arms.
Chahal and Yadav took part in “wrong-arm shootout”, as each of them took turns to hit their target, which was placed in the middle of the net, using their other arm. While Kuldeep threw with right-hand, Chahal went with left.
After a lot of trials, the score was eventually tied at 1-1, and coach Sridhar said that the team might have to spend the entire evening in search of a winner.
