London: Kuldeep Yadav of England’s first test team, India, didn’t stand a chance. Kuldeep Yadav, who was ready to return to the test team after 2 years, was again ignored. Not choosing Kuldeep Yadav, Virat Kohli gave left-arm spinner Shahbaz Nadeem a chance after Akshar Patel was ruled out due to injury.
Injustice with kuldeep
Kuldeep Yadav was seen as a big contender with Sundar and Ashwin as the third spinner, but once again he was treated unfairly. There is a lot of criticism against this decision by the team leadership. Former England captain Michael Vaughan also called the team’s decision a bad one.
Michael Vaughan also criticized
Michael Vaughan has slammed the Indian team for failing to keep left wrist pitcher Kuldeep Yadav in the squad for the first test cricket match, calling it a ‘ridiculous decision’.
Ravindra Jadeja would not be able to play the first two tests against England due to injury and so most of the former players believed Kuldeep Yadav should secure a place in the XI.

Von (Michael Vaughan) wrote on his Twitter account: ‘India’s ridiculous decision not to keep Kuldeep Yadav on the squad. If players are unable to play at home courts due to injury, then when will they play?
India included Shahbaz Nadeem in reserve in the game XI after all-rounder Axar Patel was sent off due to injury.
Kuldeep was unlucky even after 2 years
Kuldeep Yadav made his test debut in Dharamshala against Australia in 2017. Kuldeep Yadav has taken 24 wickets in 6 tests for India so far.
Kuldeep Yadav played his last Test match in Sydney in 2019 against Australia. In this match, Kuldeep Yadav took 5 wickets in the heats.
Kuldeep Yadav was also present with Team India on the Australia tour this year, but he has remained out of the entire series. Ajinkya Rahane and coach Ravi Shastri also congratulated Kuldeep Yadav, as Kuldeep had coached the Indian batsmen in nets without any selfishness.
