Let us have a look at 3 such players whom Kohli have dropped despite brilliant performances
The left-arm chinaman bowler might be the 1st on this list. Despite his exceptional wicket taking prowess, he has bee dropped time and again. Given the fact that he is a wrist spinner, he tends to flight the ball like a traditional wrist spinner. Hence on occasions, he goes for runs. He was quite brilliant in the ODI series in South Africa.
He bamboozled all the English batters during the 1st match and became the first left-arm wrist spinner to bag a 5 wicket haul in international cricket in England. Kuldeep went for a few runs in the 2nd clash. He was not included for the decider in a small ground in Bristol.
