Kuldeep Yadav about his struggles of not getting to play
Kuldeep Yadav, in a recent interview with News18, spoke about the ups and downs in his cricketing career in recent years. Yadav is been included in India’s squad but has gone unused most of the times.
“When you are playing non-stop, players do feel high on confidence. The more one sits out the more it gets tougher. I felt a huge pressure on me when I played the Test against England in Chennai this February. Due to Covid, there was nothing happening, so things got really tougher even more last year,” Kuldeep was quoted as saying in News18.
Kuldeep Yadav expressed that his feelings during the difficult times. He said that he started doubting his skills. Yadav had the desire to play for his side but was also lacking severe confidence due to limited playing time.
“I was especially when I didn’t find a place in my IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders. I wondered, ‘am I that bad?’ It’s a team-management decision and it would be wrong to go and ask them. I wasn’t played in Chennai during the IPL despite knowing it’s a turner. I was a bit shocked but couldn’t do anything,” Kuldeep added.
