Kuldeep Yadav is one of Virat Kohli’s trusted bowler today. His ability to pick up crucial wickets in the middle overs is his biggest asset. Kohli after the Champions Trophy in 2017 wanted a wrist spinner like Kuldeep who not only keeps the runs down but also takes wickets to put the pressure on the opposition.
Recently Kuldeep shared how Virat Kohli is as a skipper of team India. The 25-year-old said that Virat has a lot of belief in every member of the squad including him. The quality of captain Kohli allows players to play their natural game and perform to the best of their abilities. The Indian spinner also added that Kohli always motivates young players and is always there for them.
Virat Kohli backed me a lot: Kuldeep Yadav
“If your captain believes in you, giving your best on the field becomes easy. From Virat, we learn a lot of things like how to manage difficult situations. He never fails to motivate young players.
I remember the time when I was new in the team he backed me a lot. Now also, he is always there for me. He always appreciates your skills and we have a great tuning together”.
“The best quality of Virat is that he also understands the team and its player’s well which makes our job easy on the field”, said Kuldeep Yadav about Virat Kohli speaking in an interview to news agency IANS.
Kuldeep has so far picked 104 wickets in ODIs, 39 wickets in T20I and 24 wickets in Tests in his career. Kuldeep is the fastest Indian spinner to take 100 ODI wickets. The left-arm unorthodox spinner also has a hattrick to his name in ODIs and played a crucial role in the 2019 World Cup for team India.
