Kuldeep Yadav stabbed his own best friend in the back, ruined his friend’s career as soon as he returned to Team India.
Kuldeep Yadav: Team India has booked the ticket for Asia Cup 2023 by defeating Sri Lanka. Kuldeep Yadav had a very important contribution in taking Team India to the Asia Cup final. After Pakistan, this bowler, famously known as Chinaman, also performed brilliantly against Sri Lanka. But with his performance, Kuldeep eclipsed the career of Team India player and his best friend, due to which his career may also end. Let us know who this player is.
Back to back great performance by Kuldeep Yadav
The magic of India’s star spinner Kuldeep Yadav is at its peak in Asia Cup 2023. After taking 5 wickets in the Super 4 match against Pakistan, Kuldeep now performed brilliantly against Sri Lanka on Tuesday 12th September. Kuldeep took 4 wickets for 43 runs in 9.3 overs against Sri Lanka. With the back to back excellent performances of the ‘Chinaman’ bowler, he has closed the doors of his friend Yuzvendra Chahal’s return to Team India.
Kulcha pair had dominance
It is known that Kuldeep Yadav was given preference over Yuzvendra Chahal in Team India’s squad for Asia Cup 2023 and World Cup 2023. But Kuldeep told why he is getting preference. This can be gauged by looking at his performance in Asia Cup 2023. But his brilliant game has closed the doors for Chahal to join Team India.
Let us tell you that at one time the pair of these two players was very famous. Fans knew both of them as ‘Kulcha’. But when Chahal’s performance started declining in the ODI format, he stopped getting opportunities. Talking about Chahal, he played his last ODI match against New Zealand in January 2023. During this, he bowled 7 overs and gave 43 runs and also took 2 wickets. After this, he could not play a single ODI match for India for the last eight months.
Statistics of Chahal and Kuldeep
During this period, Kuldeep Yadav has impressed a lot with his performance. A scene of this was also seen in the match against Pakistan. If we talk about Chahal’s cricket career, till now Chahal has taken 121 and 96 wickets respectively in 72 ODI and T20 International cricket matches for India. Talking about Kuldeep’s international career, he has played 8 Tests, 87 ODIs and 32 T20 matches, in which he has taken 34, 146 and 52 wickets respectively.
