Chasing a modest total of 253 Australia's weakness against the wrist spinners was once again exposed as the Indian wrist spinner duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yazuvendra Chahal ripped past the Australian middle order, with Kuldeep Yadav becoming only the third Indian to pick up a hat-trick in the ODI Cricket in 33 over of the match.

Australian opener David Warner feels that when the spinners start bowling in tandem, it becomes a different ball game altogether.

Kuldeep's hat-trick victim was Cummins, who edged a wrong 'un with Mahendra Singh Dhoni snapped up in a flash. "It's about the tempo of the game, and the situation of the game and I feel if we were in a different position, you'll see a different mode against the spinners".

"You should know the conditions very well", Warner said.

Kuldeep bagged arguably the ideal hat-trick with three different dismissals in three deliveries. The second ball was a ideal delivery for a tall guy who was hardly looking to bend and was looking to play across the line. It was the flawless ball to get a hat-trick. I did not bowl well from one end and it was getting hard to grip the ball as it was getting wet. There was no proper line and length in his deliveries. Credit to MS as well for taking that catch.

"It was a a really proud moment".

Having bagged the hat-trick against the Aussies in 2001, Harbhajan has taken his tally to 417 wickets in Tests (3rd highest for India) & 265 wickets in ODIs (5th highest for India). He said initially he was struggling to bowl in a particular area.

"The wicket (at the Eden Gardens) was new and only helping the pacers and on this wicket the hat-trick achiever's performance was remarkable", said Kuldeep's coach, who had watched the entire match on TV.

"At the end of the day, you have to have a game plan against spin - whether or not to hit down the ground or sweep the ball".
