Agarkar expressed regret
Seeing such condition of Kuldeep Yadav, former India bowler Ajit Agarkar has expressed his regret. At the same time, he is also concerned about who will be the bowlers in the spin department of India in the T20 World Cup 2021.
What happened to Kuldeep?
Ajit Agarkar said in the virtual press conference, ‘Sometimes I feel injustice has been done to him (Kuldeep), but he should bring back his confidence and start bowling well. He and Chahal know that many players are in the queue behind them and if you compete then the performance of the team will be better.

Kuldeep-Chahal don’t play together
Agarkar further said, ‘Spin bowling is a matter of concern for India, especially when Chahal and Kuldeep have stopped playing together. But there are bowlers like Rahul Chahar and Varun Chakravarthy and if these guys perform well, then Virat Kohli will have more options.
Kuldeep got battered against England
Kuldeep Yadav last played his international match in March 2021. In that ODI series against England, he performed very badly and proved to be very expensive. In 2 matches, he bowled 19 overs and conceded 152 runs. Unfortunately, Kuldeep did not get a single wicket during this period.
golden opportunity for youth
Agarkar said, ‘The T20 World Cup is not far away, so these players have a good chance to put pressure on those players who are already in the team. Such performances will definitely be noticed. India has selected 6 uncapped players for the series against Sri Lanka. This can prove to be a golden opportunity for Kuldeep and other players.
