IPL 2022 LIVE: Kuldeep Yadav’s childhood coach Kapil Dev Pandey has credited Rohit Sharma for protecting the wrist spinner’s career. Find the IPL match predictions and match updates for the 2022 season here on our site.

Once a regular member of the Indian cricket team, Kuldeep, along with Yuzvendra Chahal formed a lethal duo for the Men in Blue in limited-overs. Among their many memorable spells was the instance when Kuldeep created Shane Warner’s Ball of the Century. He did so during the 2019 Cricket World Cup to dismiss Pakistan batsman Babar Azam.

However, post the multi-nation ICC event, Kuldeep failed to create much impact, which saw him in and out of the Indian team quite often. Things got so worse for the chinaman that his then-franchise Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) did not pick him for a single game last season in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

At the end of IPL 2021, KKR released Kuldeep, who eventually joined Delhi Capitals (DC) during the mega auction ahead of IPL 2022.

Now that Kuldeep is having a fine season in the league, his childhood coach has reckoned that the spin bowler’s international career is still protected, courtesy of Indian skipper Rohit.

“Whenever captains trusted him, Kuldeep delivered. He has a good record in Tests. He has two hat-tricks in ODIs. He has a good T20I record. But still, he didn’t get enough opportunities. This is really shocking. Kuldeep’s career is protected because of Rohit Sharma. Rohit is the man behind Kuldeep’s resurgence.

“He is a fantastic captain and he knows how to find talent in a big group of players. Ahead of the IPL, Rohit called Kuldeep and gave him the chance (against the West Indies). Kuldeep delivered too by taking two wickets,” Kuldeep’s coach said in an interview.

India’s spin duo of Chahal and Kuldeep are the current two top bowlers in the ongoing IPL campaign. While Rajasthan Royals (RR) spinner is the current leading wicket-taker in the IPL 2022 with 19 scalps to his name, Kuldeep has picked up 17 wickets, having played a game less.

Meanwhile, DC head coach Ricky Ponting has constantly backed the spinner this season. In a recent interview, Ponting said that Kuldeep was one of DC’s main targets at the mega auction and they were pleased to have him on their team.

The former Australian captain went on to state that Kuldeep “is a terrific young guy and the talented left-arm leg-spinner is thriving in this (positive) environment”.

Interestingly, the top four bowlers in the IPL 2022 are all Indians. After Chahal and Kuldeep, next on the list of most wickets are Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) fast bowler T.Natarajan (17 wickets), and Umesh Yadav (15 wickets) of KKR.

Meanwhile, Kuldeep will aim to ride on these consistent performances to reclaim his spot on the Indian cricket team. The national selectors will keep an eye on the UP bowler when they pick squads for this year’s Asia Cup and T20 World Cup.
