New Delhi: India Spinner Kuldeep Yadav, known as a wrist magician, suddenly deteriorated and dropped out of the India team. He has not selected in the Indian team for the World Test Championship (WTC Final) or the Test series against England. His bad phase started after the 2019 World Cup when he loses confidence.
As long as Dhoni played for the Indian team, the spin duo of Chahal and Kuldeep did wonders and India won many times, but since Dhoni has separated from Team India, especially Kuldeep’s bowling has been very average, the reason behind this- the selectors seem to ignore him from the big tournament.
Now this spinner talked about his poor form in a conversation with Indian Express and said that he is missing Dhoni’s advice. He has felt bad that he was not even included in the team selected for the finals of the World Championship.
In a recent interview, Kuldeep admitted that he misses the guidance of former India skipper MS Dhoni. He is the reason behind the success of ‘Kul-Cha’.
“Sometimes I miss that guidance because he (Mahi) has a great experience. He used to guide us behind the wicket, kept screaming! We miss his experience,” Kuldeep said in an interview with Indian Express.
“Rishabh is there now, the more he plays, the more input he will give in the future. I always felt every bowler needs a partner who can respond from the other end,” Kuldeep added.
“When Mahi Bhai was there, I and Chahal were playing. Ever since Mahi Bhai left, Chahal and I haven’t played together. I played only a handful of games after Mahi Bhai left,” he further said.
“I must have played ten-odd games. I had even taken a hat-trick. If you look at the performance as a whole, it will look pretty decent but if one breaks it up then my performance sometimes can look not up to the mark,” he added.
