Former national selector Venkatapathy Raju told, “The pitches in Sri Lanka will be slow and it will be good for him (Kuldeep) to come back. For the IPL (Indian Premier League) and the T20 World Cup, the UAE’s pitches are likely to be dry and spinner friendly, so Kuldeep could be the match-winner. Kuldeep needs the captain’s confidence but Raju wants the Uttar Pradesh spinner to work out his own solution to return to top form.
Dhoni played a big role
He said, ‘But unfortunately we all know how captains have played a big role in Kuldeep’s progress. He has always been saying that he felt very comfortable playing under Dhoni’s captaincy, but Dhoni will not always be there for him, as his career is over. So let’s hope that he himself will have to solve it.’

he was never a defensive bowler
Venkatapathy Raju said, ‘He is still a very good bowler. He is young so, when you have the experience of playing international cricket, it is entirely up to you to focus. He has always been a wicket taker. He has never been a defensive bowler. Kuldeep Yadav has got a place in the team for the tour of Sri Lanka. They would like to come back after doing well there. KKR did not give him a chance in a single match of the current IPL season.
