India tour of Sri Lanka: Kuldeep Yadav ready to restart with a new googly.
Kuldeep Yadav has not been lucky, and in recent years there were lots of ups and downs in his career. Once a No.1 overseas spinner by India but unfortunately not considered for the WTC(World Test Championship) final and discarded for the five-match series against England.
His confidence narrowed down and affected his bowling capabilities, says his coach. But with time and guidance through his childhood coach Mr. Kapil Dev Pandey, he regained his strength, and as the unlock process started, he started training hard.
According to the analytics, his googly was a deadly delivery, but he couldn’t place it well on the pitch. The error in the line and length was a significant factor that his economy got down. But in the training period, he worked on his googly and mastered the line and length, says his coach.
Kuldeep has made a strategic plan that consists of giving stock deliveries and becoming more economical as well. He also has a secret plan that could add a new dimension to his bowling, added his coach.
As a budding international player, he has faced many criticisms, both healthy and commendable, which is truly a part of the career of a sportsperson. But lately, his competitiveness and capabilities are questioned. As a result, he is primarily out of the national team and hardly gets to play in IPL (Indian Premier League) for his team KKR(Kolkata Knight Riders).
His coach politely added that after looking his record, he is surely a match winner, but he could not get proper exposure due to the step-motherly treatment of the board. Therefore, this Sri-Lankan series could be the best way of clearing all the criticism, and according to his current status, this might be a fruitful tournament for Kuldeep.
