“Justice For Kuldeep Yadav And Best Decision To Drop Yuzvendra Chahal” – Twitter Reacts On Kuldeep Yadav’s Inclusion In India’s Playing XI in 2nd ODI

Left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav is included in the playing XI for the second One-Day International match of the three-match series at Eden Gardens, Kolkata, on Thursday, January 12. Kuldeep replaced Yuzvendra Chahal, who was unavailable for selection due to a sore right shoulder.

Skipper Rohit Sharma picked leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal as the primary spinner in the first ODI at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati on Tuesday, January 10, despite Kuldeep being part of the playing XI in the third and final ODI against Bangladesh.

After being put to bat, the Men in Blue set a huge target of 374 runs for Sri Lanka to win. The bowlers then restricted the Dasun Shanaka-led side to 306/8 and won the match by 67 runs, taking a 1-0 lead in the series. The spin duo of Axar Patel and Chahal picked up only one wicket between them and conceded 58 runs each.

The chinaman spinner won Player of the Match in the first Test of the tour of Bangladesh for his eight wickets with the ball and crucial 40 runs with the bat. Notably, he was dropped from the playing XI for the second Test. He wasn’t named in the 15-member squad for the three-match T20I series against Sri Lanka at home, which India won by a 2-1 margin under Hardik Pandya’s captaincy.

The 28-year-old has represented India in 73 ODI matches and has picked up 119 wickets with an average of 28.29 at an economy rate of 5.20. However, he didn’t get many chances in the last three years and took only 20 wickets in 17 matches.
