Since they first began competing for the national team, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal, also known as KulCha, have developed a very special bond. Notably, the left-arm wrist spinner has made a stunning comeback in the previous 12 months, all but securing his spot in India’s white-ball lineup. He is also a contender in red-ball cricket.
Chahal, on the other hand, isn’t a regular in the Indian team right now, but he’s playing fantastic cricket in the ongoing IPL 2023, taking 12 wickets in nine games.
Speaking about their friendship, Kuldeep said that throughout his career’s most challenging period, Chahal never wavered and inspired him to mount a powerful comeback. The 28-year-old also recalled how, during his previous injury, he used to become impatient and irate every 15 minutes, but Chahal managed to keep him calm the entire time.
“I used to chat to Chahal the most while I was down from the Indian team. I used to experience mood fluctuations after surgery and injury. Every fifteen minutes, I would become enraged and tell him about it. He always said to simply concentrate on the rehabilitation and the comeback will be fantastic. In the second episode of the most recent season of Breakfast with Champions, Kuldeep stated, “It did help me a lot.
Kuldeep discusses his friendship with Ricky Ponting, the head coach of DC, in detail.
Kuldeep Yadav returned to the national squad as a result of his outstanding performance in the most recent Indian Premier League. The spinner said that one of the reasons for his recent success is that head coach Ricky Ponting instilled a lot of trust in him during the Delhi camp.
“I recall Ricky calling me after I was selected by Delhi, and he was quite clear about one thing. He assured me that I would play all 14 games regardless of how I bowled. I felt secure and my confidence soared as a result. Whether or not I have gotten wickets in the game doesn’t seem to concern him all that much. He merely gives me guidance on the bowling lanes I should target,” Kuldeep continued.
