Kuldeep Yadav has said that he wants to keep improving and doesn’t pay a lot of attention to the talks regarding his form. The left-arm chinaman was seen in an Indian jersey after a long time. He was sidelined during the Test series in Australia and in the subsequent Test series against England at home, he played only one match.
He was dropped from the T20I squad as well. So, there was a lot of anticipation when he returned to the playing XI in the first ODI against England. However, it didn’t go according to his plans. He was smashed in the two matches which he played, conceding a total of 152 runs without taking a single wicket. He was subsequently dropped from the third match.
During a recent interaction, he revealed that he always plans to make a few changes to his bowling when he is not getting results. He further noted that he feels it is important that he keeps improving his skills and starts being accurate.
“I don’t pay attention to all this talk. It’s important that I keep improving my skills and be as accurate as possible. If you’re playing regularly, batsmen tend to read you. If they are getting comfortable playing me, then my job as a bowler is to keep improving. And that’s why I look to add or change a few things every time,” Kuldeep Yadav told Mid Day, as reported by ESPNCricinfo.
Kuldeep also rued out the factor of not playing regularly as a reason for his inconsistent performance. “If you’re playing regularly, you get an idea about the length and can quickly identify what length to bowl. But when you’re playing with breaks, the length may sometimes be a little up or short. If I work hard on my lengths, it will help me bowl better,” he added.
In the upcoming season of the IPL, the young leg-spinner will be seen playing for Kolkata Knight Riders, a franchise that has been patient with him. He has been with the KKR team since 2014.
