Can’t wait to see you back in action in a different team in next year’s IPL.

Get well soon, Champ.
Get fit, work hard in domestic cricket, return to Indian team and then retire as one of the greatest bowlers ever.
You have the potential to do it! 👍👍

The Kanpur-based cricketer has played seven Tests, 65 ODIs, and 23 T20Is for a total of 174 wickets across formats. Kuldeep last played for India in Sri Lanka with best figures of 2/48 in an ODI game and 2/30 in a T20 International. He played two more games during that tour — an ODI and a T20I — in which he went wicket-less.
Kuldeep Yadav on not being included in KKR’s playing XI in IPL 2021 Phase 1
Before the resumption of the IPL 2021 Phase 2, Kuldeep Yadav had opened up on not being included in the KKR’s playing XI for even a single match. In a conversation with cricketer-turned-commentator Aakash Chopra, Kuldeep Yadav had said, “In the Indian team they talk to you when you are not selected, but it does not happen in the IPL. I remember that I had spoken to the franchise before the IPL but in the matches that happened in the middle, nobody gave me an explanation. I was a bit shocked. I felt like there was no trust like they had no faith in my skill. This happens when the team has many options. KKR now has plenty of spin bowling options.”
