Kuldeep Yadav becomes the first Indian spinner to take two 5-wickets haul in T20Is

Kuldeep was on fire for Team India on Thursday against South Africa during the third T20I of the three-match series. The star- spinner who was celebrating his 29th birthday, picked up five wickets for 17 runs in 2.5 overs to register his best bowling figures in T20Is.

Kuldeep helped India bowl out the Proteas for just 95 runs in 13.5 overs to win the match by a record margin of 106 runs and level the T20I series at 1-1.

The figures of 5 for 17 are Kuldeep's best bowling figures for India in T20Is and fourth overall by an Indian bowler in the shortest format.

The left-arm spinner created history by becoming the first Indian spinner to take two five-wicket hauls in T20Is. Kuldeep's first five-wicket hauls in T20Is was against England in 2018 when he dismissed the English batters for 24 runs.
