Kuldeep Yadav took the world by storm when he broke into the scene with his near-unreadable spin. The left-arm unorthodox bowler wreaked havoc among the batsmen who found it extremely difficult to get going against him. However, in recent times, there has been a significant drop in form for the 26-year-old. He hasn’t received a lot of game-time to prove his worth as well with both the Indian team and his IPL franchise relegating him to the bench.

Kuldeep Yadav spoke in an interview with PTI about the most difficult batsmen to bowl to for him and chose his Indian teammate Rohit Sharma and South Africa’s AB de Villiers. “I find it difficult to bowl against AB de Villiers and Rohit Sharma. De Villiers can smash the ball in any corner of the ground, while Rohit has plenty of time,” Kuldeep said. “If we look from the beginning, then MS Dhoni and Chris Gayle are truly the legends of the IPL. They have been performing well since the first season,” he further opined.

Kuldeep Yadav hasn’t got a lot of chances for KKR this season

Kuldeep Yadav also spoke about KKR’s recent performances and said, “Only few matches have happened so far. I am hoping to get a place in the final XI soon, and I will perform well.

Varun Chakravarthy‘s rise in the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) side has completely sidelined Kuldeep. The latter hasn’t played a single game yet in the 2021 edition of the IPL. KKR have currently won just one match out of their first four. With Harbhajan Singh not proving to be as effective as he would have liked with the ball, Kuldeep might get a chance soon to feature.
