      This baller of India had taken the hat in the U19 World Cup, later also for the senior team.


 In the ICC U19 World Cup to be held in New Zealand, the Indian team is being named as the title takers. In the competition, the Indian team is captained by Mumbai batsman Prithvi Shaw while the team coach is Rahul Dravid. Team India's performance in the U19 World Cup has been spectacular so far. The Indian team has been the Junior World Cup champion in the year 2000, 2008 and 2012, but twice had to be content with the runners-up (in 2006 and 2016). In the final U19 World Cup played in 2016, the Indian team lost to West Indies by five wickets in the final. The Indian team of this World Cup included star players like Ishaan Kishan, Inesh Khan, Rishabh Pant, Kuldeep Yadav, among them Rishabh and Kuldeep have represented the Indian team in senior cricket.


There is a rare record of the name of UP's Chinaman Ballar Kuldeep Yadav and the U19 World Cup and the hat-trick for India at the senior level. Kuldeep had three wickets in three consecutive balls against Scotland in the year 2016. Kuldeep, who took a hat-trick in this tournament, is the first bowler in the country. In the Group A match, he dismissed Nick Ferrer (0), Kyle Staling (0) and Alex Baum (5) of Scotland. Ferrer was caught by Kuldeep with Deepak Hooda while LBW was dismissed on the last ball of Stirling over. After this, Kuldeep completed the hat-trick by bowing out to Baum on the first ball of his next over.


On the brilliant performance of the Junior World Cup, Kuldeep Srini was successful in making the place in the Indian team too. Not only that, he also took hat-trick against Australia last year. In the match played in Kolkata in September 2017, he was dismissed by Matthew Wade, Aston Egger and Pat Cummins of Australia for consistent balls. The Wade was bold from these three wickets, while Egg was named as the LBW by the umpire.

As the third wicket of Hatik, Kuldeep was caught by MS Dhoni at the back of the wicket for the Cummins. Before Kuldeep in senior cricket, Chetan Sharma and Kapil Dev took the hat-trick for India in ODI. Chetan Sharma took a hat trick against New Zealand in 1997 and Kapil in 1991 against Sri Lanka in Kolkata. Kuldeep Yadav has played two Tests, 14 ODIs and 8 T20 matches for Team India at the senior level. He has taken nine wickets in Test cricket, 22 in ODIs and 12 wickets in T20.
