New Delhi: There was a time when the pair of chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav and leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal was considered the strongest link of Team India, but by the time the T20 World Cup 2021, both were out of the Indian cricket team. In the true sense, the countdown to the careers of these two players had started only after the retirement of Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
After Dhoni’s retirement, the attitude loosened
Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav were not included in Team India for T20 World Cup 2021. Ever since Mahendra Singh Dhoni has said goodbye to international cricket, the attitude of both the spinners has loosened. The brightness of the bowling of both of them dimmed.
bowling has no edge
Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav have performed brilliantly for Team India during Dhoni’s stay. Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav used to become very dangerous when they got advice from Dhoni from behind the wicket during the bowling, but in Dhoni’s absence their bowling did not hold the edge.
Dhoni’s advice used to work
In an interview, Kuldeep had told how he misses Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s advice on and off the field. Kuldeep had told that Dhoni’s advice behind the wicket was very useful to him and he misses it. Kuldeep had further said, ‘I sometimes feel very lack of his advice. He had a lot of experience. He used to guide us from behind the wicket.
Holiday from T20 World Cup
Yuzvendra Chahal is India’s most successful bowler in T20 International format. Despite this, he did not get a chance in the team of T20 World Cup. Rahul Chahar has got a chance to play T20 World Cup in place of Yuzvendra Chahal. Varun Chakraborty has got the T20 World Cup ticket in place of Kuldeep Yadav.
