Indian star spinner Kuldeep Yadav made history in the 3rd T20I between India and the West Indies at Providence Stadium in Guyana. Kuldeep displayed excellent spinning skills, taking 3 wickets and wasting just 28 runs. Thanks to his amazing magic that left the home side unresponsive, Kuldeep completed 50 T20I wickets for India. Kuldeep reached that milestone in 30 games, breaking the record held by fellow spinner and close friend Yuzvendra Chahal.
