Kuldeep Yadav, the only Chinaman bowler in the Indian cricket team, is seen struggling to take his place in the Indian team. He was not given a place in the Indian Test team for the tour of England. However, some former cricketers did not call it the right decision due to Kuldeep not being given a place in the Test team. However, the reason behind not giving Kuldeep a place in the team could also be that, he is going through poor form these days. Even in IPL 2021, he did not get to play any match for KKR.
Kuldeep Yadav now told during an interview that, he is missing MS Dhoni a lot behind the wicket. Dhoni played his last match for India in July 2019 and after that, he retired in the year 2020. However, after Dhoni retired, Kuldeep Yadav's bowling continued to have an impact and he was not as sharp as before. Now Kuldeep Yadav while talking to Indian Express said that he misses the guidance of Mahi Bhai because he had a lot of experience. He kept telling us from behind the wicket, what we had to do. He used to shout continuously and I am now missing these things a lot.
Kuldeep Yadav said that, while Mahi Bhai was in the team, Chahal and I were playing. I and Chahal did not play any match together since Mahi Bhai went. I got opportunities in only a few matches and I must have played a total of 10 matches in which I also took a hat-trick. I had a decent performance in these matches. Talking about Kuldeep Yadav's international career, he has taken 26 wickets in 7 Tests for India, 105 in 63 ODIs, and 39 wickets in 20 T20 matches. Kuldeep is not a part of Team India these days.
