The last few years have been sensational for Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav. They have outsmarted top-class batting lineups to help India lift the trophies. The duo got a great understanding and also knows their strengths to make things fall in the place for the team. Meanwhile, Ajay Jadeja makes an interesting point on the duo.
The introduction of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal into India’s playing XI after the 2017 Champions Trophy in England made a dramatic impact on the team’s results. The Indian team management is continuing with the duo, who are going to be key for Indian National Cricket Team in ICC World Cup 2019.
Of late, the Virat Kohli-led side is finding it bit tough to embed both the players in the playing XI. As the duo doesn’t have the batting skills, India’s team balance is affecting, which also saw them losing a few games dramatically.
Kuldeep Yadav should bowl in middle overs – Ajay Jadeja
Meanwhile, speaking of the same, Ajay Jadeja feels that Yuzvendra Chahal must be in the playing XI in order to help Kuldeep Yadav get his success. Further, he strongly believes that Kuldeep Yadav should finish his overs in the middle overs of the game.
”Kuldeep Yadav cannot be used in the powerplay overs and he goes for plenty when he was held back in the innings. He is most effective when the batsman is not trying to get after him. In the middle of the innings, the batsman should do all kinds of works to play him. It would be tough to score even single when you don’t know which way the ball is spinning,” Ajay Jadeja said to Cricbuzz.
Yuzvendra Chahal is a better bowler than Kuldeep Yadav:
Further, he went on to add saying that Yuzvendra Chahal is the captain’s bowler. Jadeja believes that they can use Chahal at any stage of the game, as he can bowl various lines and lengths to the batsman.
”For me, Chahal is a better bowler. Numbers may not show that. But, as a captain or as a person, who looks the game differently, he is a bowler, who can be used at any time of the game. He doesn’t bowl one kind of bowling. So, Chahal must be around to help Kuldeep Yadav have success,” Ajay Jadeja inferred.
Well, it would be interesting to see how things would pan out for both youngsters in the next few months to come. The performance of the duo will make a major impact in India’s chances to triumph ICC World Cup 2019.
