In the second Test against Bangladesh, Rahul Dravid-led Indian team management made the unexpected choice to exclude the talented left-arm wrist-spinner, Kuldeep Yadav, from the starting XI.

On December 22, the second Test of the two-match series between the India National Cricket Team and the Bangladesh National Cricket Team under Shakib Al Hasan got underway at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka.

Dodda Ganesh Slams Team Management For Excluding Kuldeep Yadav From Playing XI

Former Indian cricketer Dodda Ganesh was furious at the Indian team management’s decision and he took to Twitter to slam Rahul Dravid & Co. in a series of tweets. He wrote:

“Why does this happen so often to Kuldeep Yadav? You can’t be doing this to him again and again. Please someone put an arm around his shoulder and tell him not to lose heart. Yes. It’s tough being Kuldeep Yadav. Spare a thought for him #DoddaMathu #CricketTwitter”

“I guess the think tank needs to be a bit more considerate while dealing with the youngsters who’ve done well, and tinker with the team combo accordingly. Last time they dropped Karun after his 303* to play an extra seamer at HYD. And now this, with #KuldeepYadav. Shocking. Ridiculous.”
“Also the way the Bangladeshis struggled to pick #KuldeepYadav in the last test, makes this decision to leave him out today even more senseless and defies cricketing logic. Do you want your match-winner to warm the benches? What are u guys upto? Seriously”

Bangladesh Bats First After Winning Toss

After winning the toss, the Bangladesh National Cricket Team decided to start the game by batting first. Taskin Ahmed replaced Ebadot Hossain in the starting lineup, and Mominul Haque replaced Yasir Ali.

The India National Cricket Team, on the other hand, made an unexpected move by starting Saurashtra left-arm bowler Jaydev Unadkat in place of last game’s Player of the Match, Kuldeep Yadav.

Kuldeep Yadav’s exclusion came as a huge surprise to many because he performed sensationally in the first Test against Bangladesh and then got dropped just after one game.  Kuldeep, who was playing Test cricket for India after 22 long months, delivered an amazing all-round performance in his comeback game at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram. 

He bagged a 5-wicket haul (5/40) in the second innings of the match by dismissing Shakib Al Hasan, Nurul Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Taijul Islam, and Ebadot Hossain. In the 4th innings, he bagged a 3-wicket haul (3/73) by dismissing Litton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, and Ebadot Hossain. Also, with the bat in the first innings, Kuldeep Yadav scored 40 runs and had a brilliant 87-run partnership with Ravichandran Ashwin.
