Mohammad Kaif criticizes KKR for how they treated Kuldeep Yadav. Kuldeep Yadav had 3/18 in his debut for DC.
Former India batter Mohammad Kaif has lauded Kuldeep Yadav for his outstanding IPL comeback. Kuldeep sign by the Delhi Capitals in the mega auction 2022. Received his first cap for the team on March 27 against the Mumbai Indians in the Capitals’ season opener.
Kuldeep bowled figures of 3/18 in his first game for DC and went on to win Player of the Match. With his incredible performance, the 27-year-old impressed everyone, and Kaif became one of many. Kaif believes that the DC team management will have to keep a close eye on Kuldeep, as the spinner tends to lose confidence if he does not play consistently.
“Kuldeep Yadav has a track record of winning matches.” But he is also someone who must be well managed. “He’s a bit emotional and gets depress if he doesn’t get the bowling or is drop from the team,” he told Sportskeeda.
“The way he was treated at KKR when Dinesh Karthik and Eoin Morgan were the captains, he used to be made to sit at home and not even in the squad,” the 41-year-old said of the player’s previous stint with the team over the past few years. Any match-winner feels the pressure when you act like this.”
Axar Patel’s career is following in the footsteps of Ravindra Jadeja: Mohammad Kaif
Kaif also mentioned Axar Patel and his match-winning performance against the Mumbai Indians. In the most recent game, Axar and Lalit Yadav put up a 75-run partnership, propelling their team to a thrilling victory.
Kaif compared Axar’s career to that of Ravindra Jadeja, saying, “Axar Patel’s career is progressing similarly to that of Ravindra Jadeja.” Jadeja used to bowl well when he was younger, but it wasn’t until later that his batting improved. Axar has a great bat-swing and can hit good bowlers like Bumrah. Finishing a game with the bat is not what he is known for, but with confidence, he will only get better.”
In the second game of the IPL 2022, Delhi Capitals defeated Mumbai Indians by four wickets.
