Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal picked up three wickets each during India’s win against Sri Lanka in the deciding One-Day International (ODI) in Visakhapatnam on Sunday.
At a conference post the match, Chahal was asked about the comparison between them and Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja.
Terming them unfair, Chahal explained, "Ashwin bhaiya and Jaddu bhai have done so much in the past 6-7 years. Whereas, the two of us have played just played 4-5 series so far," said Chahal. "So you can't compare us at this point. Our only focus is to give our best on the field.
"Since we (Kuldeep and I) have played only in India up until now, it's wrong to compare us at this point. Overseas, we have played only in Sri Lanka, where wickets are quite similar to India. So you can't judge at this point since we haven't really played overseas,” he further explained.
India won the final ODI comfortably thanks to a stunning hundred from Shikhar Dhawan.
