The Rahul Dravid-led Indian team management made an absolutely shocking decision in the second Test against Bangladesh as they dropped the in-form left-arm wrist-spinner, Kuldeep Yadav, from the playing XI.

The second Test of the two-match series between Shakib Al Hasan-led Bangladesh National Cricket Team and KL Rahul-led India National Cricket Team commenced on Thursday, December 22, at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka.

Bangladesh National Cricket Team won the toss and elected to bat first in the match. They made two changes to the playing XI, with Taskin Ahmed coming in for Ebadot Hossain and Mominul Haque for Yasir Ali.

India National Cricket Team, on the other hand, made a shocking change by dropping last game’s Player of the Match, Kuldeep Yadav, and including Saurashtra left-arm pacer Jaydev Unadkat in the playing XI.

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 Yadav, 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.

Several fans and pundits were furious at the Indian team management’s decision and they took to Twitter to slam Rahul Dravid & Co.

However, many were also happy to see Jaydev Unadkat finally getting an opportunity to play red-ball cricket for India after 12 years and 2 days, which is the second longest gap between Test appearances for India after Lala Amarnath’s 12 years and 129 days. Overall, Jaydev Unadkat missed 118 Tests between his two appearances, which is also the second most after Gareth Batty’s 142.
