The Kolkata Knight Riders‘ IPL 2021 campaign has suffered another setback as left-arm chinaman Kuldeep Yadav has been ruled out due to a knee injury. While Kuldeep did not play for the Knight Riders, he would have provided good variety in the attack if any of their favourite players had a form, niggle, or injury concern.
Kuldeep was even passed over for a spot in the 15-man T20 World Cup team, and an injury at this time means he would be out of action for an extended period of time, reducing his prospects of making a comeback anytime soon. Meanwhile, Kuldeep has returned home, according to reports.
The 26-year-old had already spoken out about his lack of communication with Kolkata captain Eoin Morgan. He stated that he has not spoken with Morgan about what needs to be done to regain his place in the starting XI.
When dealing with an international player, the communication chasm widens: Kuldeep
He went on to say that if the captain had been an Indian, such as Rohit Sharma, it would have been much simpler to interact with him.
“It unquestionably makes a difference. So far, I’ve just played under Eoin Morgan’s captaincy, and I’m not sure how he sees me. We hadn’t met much until he was named KKR captain. When we played England, I typically saw him “According to Kuldeep on Aakash Chopra’s YouTube channel.
“The communication distance widens with an international player, but with an Indian captain, you can always talk to him openly and practically walk up to him and ask why you aren’t in the starting XI. If Rohit Sharma is your captain, you may ask him anything you want about your role in the team, his assessment of your abilities, and areas for improvement “he explained
“This is not the case with a professional skipper. They should also interact with the players and have an interest in what is expected of them “Kuldeep went on to say.
While Kuldeep did not play in the IPL 2021, it is true that he was not having a good time in the competition. Since the 2018 IPL, the spinner has taken 40 wickets in 45 matches at an economy of more than 8 runs per over.
