WTC final: Can Kuldeep Yadav make a comeback? Parthiv Patel speaks about Exclusion from the Squad

When the BCCI announced the squad of 20 member squad for the world test championship, Kuldeep yadav did not find the mention of his name in the list. He was quite disappointed for not finding the name. He is unsure when he will stage a comeback in the Indian team.  

Kuldeep even did not feature in the four stand by players. But Parthiv patel had different views when it came to the exclusion of Kuldeep yadav. He said he can anytime make a comeback in the team as he is young with plenty of time at his hand. But he will have to work upon himself and make himself worthy enough to perform better in the international game. 

During a discussion on the Star Sports show Cricket Connected, Parthiv Patel opined that Kuldeep Yadav will have to set the domestic circuit on fire to be back in the good books of the selectors.

“Kuldeep Yadav will have to go to first-class cricket and take a lot of wickets as everyone does. One or two fifers or a 10-wicket haul will not do him any favors. I think he will have to go out there and try and prove himself again and again,” said Patel.

The former India wicket-keeper replied in the affirmative when asked if Kuldeep Yadav will also have to work on his batting.

“That’s a very big plus. When we talk about the all-rounder’s spot which we will miss in Hardik Pandya, that all-rounder’s spot can be filled by Ravindra Jadeja and R Ashwin or you talk about Axar Patel or Washington Sundar,” observed Patel.

Parthiv Patel highlighted that all the spinners chosen in the squad for England are proficient with the bat and lend the required balance to the team, especially in the absence of Hardik Pandya.

“Everyone is capable of scoring a first-class hundred and everyone has scored a first-class hundred. Some of them have scored double hundreds and triple hundreds. So that makes a huge difference. It just gives you a proper balance, say you have six batsmen and you have all-rounders in Jadeja and Ashwin at No.7 and No.8 and you have three fast bowlers. So, you are going with five proper bowlers and the batsmen in Jadeja and Ashwin as well,” added Patel.

 Kuldeep jadav will have to make a name for himself in domestic cricket again if he wants to make an entry into the Indian team. Given the corona situation in the country, any domestic matches are unlikely to be organized. So, it might be difficult for him to gain confidence. 

Parthiv Patel signed off by stating that age is on Kuldeep Yadav’s side and he can definitely stage a comeback by putting in the hard yards.

“It will be very interesting to see how Kuldeep Yadav works hard on his game because he is young and he can always make a comeback,” concluded Patel.

Kuldeep Yadav has more often than not warmed the benches lately in all three formats of the game. He did not even get a game for the Kolkata Knight Riders in the now-suspended IPL 2021.

It will be interesting to see if the left-arm wrist-spinner is included as part of the Indian limited-overs squad for the Sri Lankan tour.
