Indian spinner Kuldip Yadav’s coach Kapil Pandey said that he had to rectify his bowling action in order to make him more valuable for the team.

Flight, drift, turn- everything was right about that Kuldeep delivery which sneaked through the tiniest of gaps between Babar’s bat and pad on Sunday during the match between India and Pakistan.

Kuldeep himself rated it as his best delivery of the tournament so far. But nothing was perfect a couple of months ago. The ball was not coming out of his hand correctly, there was hardly any turn and he was smashed all around the park during the IPL. Four wickets in eight matches at an average of 71.50, Kuldeep was enduring his worst IPL. The result was an exclusion from Kolkata Knight Riders’ playing XI.

“Some errors had crept into his bowling action. International tours had forced him to get away from his basic drills, I just had to bring him back,” said Kapil Pandey in an exclusive chat with Hindustan Times regarding the turnaround of Kuldip.
