Kuldeep Yadav reveals the two toughest batsmen he has ever bowled in his career
The left-arm chinaman spinner who represents Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League is yet to don the jersey for his franchise. He has been in and out of the Indian team due to a lack of contribution with the ball.
In the recently concluded India and England ODI series, the left-handed failed to do his job and conceded a lot of runs in the game. Moreover, in the second ODI, Ben Stokes smashed him for three consecutive sixes which costed him to lose his place from the playing xi.
However, coming to IPL, Morgan-led Kolkata Knight Riders has the services of the experienced off-spinner Harbhajan Singh who was once a regular fixture in the Mumbai Indians team.
After winning their first game against Sunrisers Hyderabad, KKR failed to chase down the target in their next game that they played against Mumbai Indians.
Following that, they also lost the game against Royal Challengers Bangalore as they failed to stop Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers who slammed the likes of the opposition bowlers all around the park.
Kuldeep Yadav has shared few words with PTI Bhusha in a recent interview
Kuldeep Yadav said that "Only three matches have happened so far. I am hoping to get a place in the final XI soon, and I will perform well."
After asked about the two toughest batsmen that he ever bowled in his career, the 26-year-old was quick enough to respond and named Rohit Sharma and 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."
He also named the Punjab Kings' star player Chris Gayle and the skipper of CSK MS Dhoni and added "If we look from the beginning, then MS Dhoni and Chris Gayle are truly the legends of IPL. They have been performing well since the first season."
"Sunil Narine was not fit to get included in the Playing XI," says Brendon McCullum in a recent interview
Brendon McCullum is the head coach of the Kolkata Knight Riders team. In a recent interview, McCullum said that Sunil Narine was not 100% fit and might warm the bench on few occasions.
They want fresh legs in tough times if the results didn't come in favour of them. "Sunil Narine stood on the rope before our first game. It means he has had an injury where he was not 100 per cent fit. He certainly comes into our calculations.
He was touch and go for this game against RCB. We opted for Shakib who has been good for us. Gives us an extra bit of batting. After three games, the guys have played well, we have not got the results, we probably would need some fresh legs for slightly different wickets in Mumbai,” said Brendon McCullum.
“In the past, we have not been made to plan much as Maxwell has not been in top form but it appears, he has come this year with a really refreshed attitude. He is taking the game on, we have seen him being successful in the Big Bash and Australia.
He took the game away from us in a crunch situation but if we had our time again, we would have tried few different things," and signed off.
