Australia waste first innings at Dharamsala

Kuldeep said the idea was to restrict runs as wickets would then come automatically.

With the series tied 1-1, Australia only needs a draw in Dharamsala to hold onto the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.

He also revealed he had learnt some tricks of the trade from none other than Aussie spin legend Shane Warne, after scripting a memorable debut against Australia in Dharamsala. "So learning from Warne and then dismissing his countryman is a nice feeling", Kuldeep said at the media conference. He watched a lot of Shane Warne videos in order to flawless his techniques.

India's Kuldeep Yadav was once taught by Australian cricket great Shane Warne. When I met him, it was a dream come to true to meet and talk to my idol, learning from him. I did exactly what he (Warne) told me to do.

India (for fourth Test): Virat Kohli (c), Murali Vijay, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Wriddhiman Saha, Ravichandaran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Ishant Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Karun Nair, Jayant Yadav, Kuldeep Yadav, Abhinav Mukund, Mohammed Shami. "Now he has promised me to meet again and hold a training session with me". When I started, my natural action was chinaman and I had no clue that this is called chinaman or there existed an art called chinaman. All the Indian batsmen, barring Kohli, have been among the runs in the series, with Cheteshwar Pujara getting a marathon match-saving double-hundred and stumper Wriddhiman Saha a brilliant century in the third Test. "They weren't overexcited. It was no different, to be honest", he said.

Raising the Sewol: Emotional time for kin of ferry victims
Until the ramp is cut away, crews can't load the ferry onto the semi-submersible heavy-lift vessel that would carry it into port. Bereaved families have been calling for the ship to be raised and for a more thorough investigation into the disaster.

"Initially I was nervous when I was standing at fine leg in the first over".

"It's different when you get out onto a game scenario, especially the way the wicket was going to play and what's going on out there, but yeah, everyone has had a look at his footage and he bowled quite well today", he said.

The extra bounce also helped his cause as Warner after doing all hardwork tried to play a cut shot close to his body only to find that the delivery bounced wee bit more to take a thickish edge to Rahane at first slip.

India's first-ever left-arm wrist spinner bamboozled Australian batsmen in a terrific post-lunch spell where he accounted for David Warner (56), Peter Handscombe (8) and Glenn Maxwell (8) to put brakes on Australia, who were on a roll during the opening session, courtesy Smith (111).

Wade, who scored a 57, said that even reaching 300 was a good efffort considering the dire situation they were in.
