Kuldeep is the orange cap holder

Kuldeep Yadav had a harrowing time during his period at KKR where he got very little support from the team management, he has now taken 10 wickets in the ongoing IPL and is now the “orange cap” holder.

Kuldeep Yadav’s had a harrowing time during his period at Kolkata Knight Riders where he got very little support from the team management but he has got a second wind at Delhi Capitals in a nice environment with backing from skipper Rishabh Pant. 

Kuldeep Yadav has now taken the 10 wickets in the ongoing IPL edition and is now the “orange cap” holder having missed the last season with a horrific knee injury.

“I am enjoying the environment here and have a good backing of the side. Rishabh guides me well from behind the stumps, too,”

Kuldeep said after the end of the match.

While Rishabh said that he has tried to give him enough chances so that he is back in the groove.

“Kuldeep has been working for one year but hasn’t been getting enough chances. We are trying to back him and he is doing well.”

Kuldeep said that he is working a lot on his bowling.

“I didn’t think much earlier. I felt I can reach it, and it is my wicket at the end of the day. It is important to take a pause and think about the bowling. This is a good wicket and the batters do well.”

He was happy that he got KKR skipper Shreyas Iyer’s wicket.

“Shreyas was batting well and hitting it well, so that was a big wicket. Enjoyed Shreyas’ wicket more because it was my first and was the main wicket from the team’s point of view since he was batting well.

“I haven’t tried too much and I am focusing on my rhythm. That’s what I did when I returned to the Indian team. I am enjoying my bowling and bowling at good lengths. I pulled the lengths against Shreyas as well as Cummins.”

On Sunday, former India pacer RP Singh, talk in detail about the Kuldeep while Parthiv Patel explained that the presence of the Indian head coach and captain allows the players to interact more freely.

“I agree with Parthiv. If you have an Indian coach in the support staff, the player can talk more freely. It doesn’t matter if it’s right or wrong; it is more about the player feeling light and comfortable. I’ve seen both, Kuldeep and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. We used to tell Bhuvi, “You have to do your best today and win the game today,” and he used to put his best foot forward. Kuldeep’s nature is different, he needs to be kept a little free. We used to tell him to just be himself and enjoy. And then he would perform,”

RP Singh said on Cricbuzz.
