Cricketer turned analyst Sanjay Manjrekar has said that Kuldeep Yadav must not be snubbed from the ICC T20 World Cup squad. 

Manjrekar has backed the left-arm wrist spinner and believes he should be a part of the team. He stated that Australian pitches are the reason why he would prefer Kuldeep over Yuzvendra Chahal. He mentioned that the pitches there won’t be of Chahal’s liking, and Yadav’s variations could be a plus for the Men in Blue.

Kuldeep Yadav, who was a part of the Indian squad against the Proteas, was ruled out due to an injury. On the other hand, Chahal, who failed in the first two matches, bounced back in the 3rd T20I, taking 3/20.

When Manjrekar was asked about the spin duo of Team India, he stated, “Chahal will be tested on those pitches in Australia. The pitches won’t assist Chahal, and I believe Kuldeep Yadav has got to be a part of the squad. There will be a bounce for his kind of a bowler. “

He further stated that Kuldeep is a better deceiver than Chahal. “You play different teams in World Cup matches, and Kuldeep is a master in 

deceiving the batters,” he added. 

The 2019 Cricket World Cup was the last time these two played together in an ICC event. 

The duo of ‘Kul-Cha’ was not part of the ICC T20 World Cup. However, their success in this year’s IPL has given them another chance to play for India.
