Sunil Joshi chooses between Chahal and Kuldeep

Kuldeep Yadav

Former Indian left arm spinner Sunil Joshi has given his opinion about having Kuldeep Yadav or Yuzvendra Chahal in the Indian side. But Sunil Joshi has chosen the former one considering his recent form and skills. 

Talking on ESPNCricinfo, the former spinner said that Chahal is going through a lean patch right now and is not getting enough chances. On the other hand, Kuldeep has been picking up crucial wickets in the middle overs and his fielding is superior to Chahal’s.  

Sunil feels that the management should release Chahal and let him play in the domestic matches to regain form and match practice. 

Probably Chahal is in that phase: Sunil Joshi

“Over a period any bowler will go through that phase. Probably Chahal is in that phase. Someone like Chahal, who is not able to get game time in the middle, probably he should request the team management to go and play domestic cricket. Match time is very important for him to get back into form. That should be the ideal preparation for Chahal.” Joshi said in a video released by ESPNcricinfo.

Kuldeep needs to be consistent: Sunil

“Kuldeep Yadav is in a space where he is absolutely fine. He needs to be more consistent. He needs to be looking at the tactical part. He needs to know how he will approach each team and venue. The World Cup is in India but every venue has a different dimension, in terms of pitch, soil, and climate. He has to prepare himself accordingly.” he concluded.
