Left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav has seen a staggering comeback in the form in the wake of getting picked for Delhi Capitals in the 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League. Yadav had seen a mind-boggling droop in his form while playing for Kolkata Knight Riders in the last two years of the competition and was sidelined for practically the whole of the time.
