Kuldeep Yadav

Kuldeep Yadav

The 23-year-old left-arm wrist spinner, in October, became only the seventh bowler to pick up a five-wicket haul in all three formats of the game.

Kuldeep topped the bowling chart for India across ODIs, Tests and T20Is, picking up 77 wickets in 32 matches at an economy rate of 4.63. 

Although he played only three Tests, where he snapped up 10 wickets at 3.90, Kuldeep has emerged as of the most lethal bowlers in limited-overs cricket. 

In ODIs, he was India's top wicket-taker, snapping up 45 at 4.64 and replicated his run in the shortest format — 22 scalps at 6.02 making him a bowler to watch out for. 

In July, against England, Kuldeep returned figures of 6 for 25,  the best by a left-arm spinner in ODI history. He surpassed Murali Kartik's 6 for 27 against Australia in Mumbai in 2007.
