Left-handed spinner Kuldeep yadav, who is trying to regain the rhythm as it is difficult for him to break into India, playing XI, hopes that he will soon perform well in the Indian Premier League (IPL) for his team Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).
KKR suffered a 38-time defeat against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Sunday. After the team’s second defeat in three games, head coach Brendan McCallum also hinted at a change in the final 11.
The left-handed spinner, who took 40 wickets in 45 games in the IPL, in a special conversation with PTI Bhasha, said: “There are only three games. I hope to get a chance in the team soon (final-11) and I will do well.”
Culdiip said that thanks to the inclusion of experienced spinner Harbhajan Singh in the team, he personally gained a lot and became mentally strong.
“I learned a lot after Bhajju Pa (Harbhajan) joined the team. I ask him a lot of things. It’s good to have an experienced player with you. He tells me how to improve my skills and how to be mentally strong,” he said. .
Kuldeep, who has played seven tests, 63 ODIs and 20 T20 Internationals for India, said KKR is a full country and will soon be back in the tournament. The franchise has further strengthened it by adding comprehensiveness Shakib Al Hasan in the detachment together with Harbjajan.
“If you look at our team, the franchise has tried to meet all the requirements. The team includes experienced players like Harbhajan Singh and Shakib Al Hassan. Our team is strong, we also have experience in beating. We are like a whole team,” he said.
Asked about the team’s defeat in the last two games, he said his team must bear the brunt of the idea of finishing the game comfortably against the Mumbai Indians.
“Against the Mumbai Indians, we thought of taking the match to the last, but then it turned out to be wrong,” he said. Sunrisers Hyderabad also made the same mistake in the first match against us. We felt that if we took the match to the end, we would win easily, but it was very difficult to play a big blow in the later shots in Chennai. ”
“Chennai’s terrain is slow and spinners are getting help here,” he said. We had no idea of the difficult conditions of the latter. The ball stopped and it was not easy for the new batsmen to enter draws.
KKR’s next game is against three-time champion Chennai Super Kings. Culdip admitted that Chennai’s team is much stronger this time than last season.
