Kuldeep not worried about his exclusion from T20I side
Indian left-arm chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav recently said that he is not worried about his exclusion from the Indian T20I side.
India are now planning for the ICC T20 World Cup 2020 which is to be played in Australia. As part of their preparations for the big tournament, India’s new spin twins Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal are sitting out of the team in the last two series.
The spin twins were the India’s go through bowlers with the white ball for the last two years in the two formats of the game. Quite surprisingly there are left out of the T20I side now, and it is not clear that whether it is a rest or drop on two.
Recently Indian skipper Virat Kohli said that the team management is trying with some new face who are alsp having a good tag all-rounders. Speaking about his exclusion, the chinaman bowler said that he is not much worried abouth the exclusion from the side.
“So far, I have done a good job in limited-overs format. I feel very comfortable with the white ball,” Kuldeep told reporters after the third day. “I am not worried about not being picked for the last two T20I series. Maybe the selectors felt I needed a break. Maybe the team thinks some changes are required. I respect that, and I have no complaints. I see this as an opportunity to do well in Tests,” said Kuldeep.
Further the wrist spinner said that he is trying to develop his skill more with the red ball with some guidance from the senior bowlers like Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin.
“It’s hard to play red-ball cricket when you aren’t consistently playing that format,” Kuldeep said. “If you aren’t a regular in this format, it takes time to get into your rhythm. It was important for me to come here (in the India A game) and bowl as many overs as possible. There is still plenty of work to do,” Kuldeep concluded.
