Former India spinner Venkatapathy Raju believes that if Kuldeep Yadav is no longer behind the wicket with Mahendra Singh Dhoni for strategic advice, he will have to find a way to return to the T20 World Cup. Yes. Kuldeep Dhoni had grown very fast under captaincy but his form collapsed under Virat Kohli’s leadership, leaving him out of the Test squad. Former chief selector Raju told news agency PTI: “Sri Lanka’s pitches are slow and it is good for them (Kuldeep) to return. The UAE pitches for the IPL (Indian Premier League) and the T20 World Cup may be dry and spinner friendly, so Kuldeep can be a match-winner.

Kuldeep needs the captain’s confidence but Raju wants the Uttar Pradesh spinner to come up with his own solution to return to his top form. “But unfortunately we know how the leaders played a big part in Kuldeep’s development,” he said. He always said that he was very comfortable with Dhoni’s leadership, but he was not always there for Dhoni’s career, so let’s hope he resolves it. He’s still a good bowler. He’s young, so it’s entirely up to you to focus on when you have experience playing international cricket, he’s always been a wicket taker, he’s never been a defensive bowler.
