Team India chinaman Kuldeep Yadav has not been a regular in the KKR set up in IPL 2020. He has played five matches in the tournament thus far and picked up one wicket. It is his poor form that has seen him sit on the bench. But former India opener wants KKR to include Kuldeep Yadav in the match against CSK later today.
CSK have nothing to lose in IPL 2020 as they have already been knocked out of the tournament. KKR have lost their fourth spot to KXIP at the back of their few questionable performance. It will be an important match for KKR as they would want to stay alive in the race to playoffs with a big win.
I fail to understand why Nagarkoti is in the team: Virender Sehwag
Sehwag said that he fails to understand why KKR is utilising young Kamlesh Nagarkoti on a weary wicket in UAE. Kuldeep Yadav can be brought in place of him and he could prove to be effective on a slow wicket. He also added that Yadav will be more dangerous for a batman to play if included in the side.
“I fail to understand why Nagarkoti is in the team if he is not going to bowl his quota of 4 overs. It would be better to play Kuldeep instead. On a slow wicket, he will be a lot more dangerous for the batsman to play,” Sehwag said in ‘Viru ki Baithak’ on YouTube.
Yadav had practiced hard during the lockdown situation but failed to execute his plans. He did not has the luxury of practicing at nets or going to NCA but made the most of his time at his home in Jajmau, a Kanpur suburb on the banks of the Ganges.
Kuldeep, 25, has picked up 24 wickets in Tests, 104 in ODIs and 39 in the shortest format of the game.
