India's Kuldeep Yadav on Thursday became the first left-arm spinner to claim six wickets in One-Day Internationals (ODIs). 

The left-arm chinaman bowler achieved the feat during the first ODI between India and England at Trent Bridge in Nottingham on Thursday. 

Before Yadav, Australia's left-arm spinner Brad Hogg held the record when he claimed 5 for 32 against West Indies at Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) in 2005. 

Playing his first match against England, Kuldeep claimed 6 for 25 to help India end hosts inning for 268 in 49.5 overs. 

Kuldeep's figures were the fourth best for India in ODIs.
