The veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh has backed the Indian left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav who has been left out of the playing XI, to be a match-winner still. Kuldeep Yadav has been on the sidelines for a long time now and he is yet to feature in the playing XI for his franchise Kolkata Knight Riders or the Indian team.
The chinaman bowler did not have the best of times recently and has been going through a rough patch. He is still an important part of India’s plans in all the formats and needs to get back into his groove soon. Kuldeep will get his chances soon and needs to make use of the opportunities to get back in the reckonings.
“I Don’t See Anything With Kuldeep’s Bowling” – Harbhajan Singh
Harbhajan Singh strongly backed his teammate Kuldeep Yadav to come good soon for both his franchise and the nation. He told that Kuldeep still has got a different set of skills that got him into the national team and added that he has improved on it. He revealed that Kuldeep has been putting in the hard yards in the practice sessions and it is only a matter of time till he comes good.
“I don’t see anything with Kuldeep’s bowling. He’s been a match-winner for Team India and for KKR. I’m sure he will come good for KKR and also later on for Team India as well,” Harbhajan Singh said.
“Kuldeep is a big matchwinner. Nobody told him how to bowl when he first played for India. He still has the same skill-set which has in fact improved now. It’s about time.
“He is putting the same efforts. Knowing Kuldeep Yadav, I know he’s a hard worker and he will come back strong. This is part and parcel of a player and has happened with many great bowlers,” he added
“Glad That I Bowled That First Over Well” – Harbhajan Singh
Harbhajan Singh explained that his goal was to play the game still and get his rhythm going. He added that he was nervous during the first over which came out beautifully. He expressed his desire to have bowled more overs which did not happen in the first game and was confident that he will bowl a lot more overs for KKR in the upcoming matches.
“My goal has always been to play cricket. I was a bit nervous initially and then I told myself to relax myself and bowl the way I’ve been doing all these years. Glad that I bowled that first over well.”
“I was waiting to bowl more but it didn’t happen. I’m sure going forward I’ll be bowling many more overs for KKR and win those small little moments,” Harbhajan Singh added.
Harbhajan almost picked up a wicket in his first over with a leading edge of David Warner which fell in the vacant area.
