DC vs KKR: ‘He Can Bowl Well-Disguised Googlies’: Sunil Gavaskar Rates Kuldeep Yadav’s India Comeback Chances After ‘Exceptional’ Show vs KKR

Against his previous side, Kuldeep Yadav retaliated for it in style as he got done with 4 for 35 at the Brabourne Stadium and packed away the Player of the Match prize in Delhi Capitals’ 44 runs win. Indian cricket legend Sunil Gavaskar evaluated his future possibilities after a “remarkable” show against KKR.

Addressing Star Sports after the primary match of twofold header Sunday, Gavaskar was powerfully dazzled with an improved Kuldeep, who he feels, is bowling the googlies well, and is bowling significantly flatter than prior, and speedier off the pitch also.

Team India Comeback On For Wicket-Taker Kuldeep: Gavaskar

Gavaskar said that “Any time you get four wickets in a T20 format, you bowled exceptionally well. And the way he was picking the wickets, at crucial times was also important. The fact that he has now begun to pick wickets means that the chances of him making a comeback to the Indian team also increase.

He is that kind of a bowler, a left-arm wrist-spinner, who can bowl the googly as well, a very well-disguised googly. And he is bowling a lot flatter. Earlier on he was a little slow off the pitch, now he is a little quicker off the pitch which makes batting a little bit more difficult against him,” said the India legend.

Kuldeep Yadav Third In Purple Cap Race

Kuldeep Yadav was earlier this year included in the two T20I series at home against Sri Lanka and managed to bag an appearance in a match each in the two contests, picking two wickets in all.

In 2019, he played nine games prior to being sidelined for the leftover of the Indian Premier League (IPL) season for Kolkata Knight Riders. In the next year, he played only four games for KKR. A striving Kuldeep Yadav was discounted in IPL and his India return looked hopeless. Released by KKR, he was roped in by Delhi Capitals and what fans saw next was a Kuldeep 2.0.

In four matches this season, Kuldeep Yadav has picked 10 wickets in IPL 2022 at 11.60 with a strike rate of 9.40. He stands third in the Purple Cap race, behind Yuzvendra Chahal (11 wickets) and KKR’s Umesh Yadav (10).

So is an India return certain for Kuldeep?
