A childhood coach revealed how the Form of the Indian Star dipped before he recovered

As the Asia Cup and ODI World Cup 2023 are around the corner, Kuldeep Yadav, the spinner of the Indian cricket team, has finally regained his momentum, which saw him break into the national team during the lead-up to the 2019 ODI World Cup. With 22 wickets in 11 matches, Kuldeep is India's leading wicket-taker in ODIs. His form has been a huge boost for the team on the ongoing tour of the West Indies. However, the last few years haven't been easy for the left-arm spinner, who aims to seal his place in the Indian team for the upcoming tournaments.
After suffering a dip in form, Kuldeep didn't get proper backing from the Indian team, as well as his former Indian Premier League franchise, the Kolkata Knight Riders.
Now the childhood coach of Kuldeep Yadav, Kapil Pandey, has blamed the management of KKR for the spinner's dip in form.
Pandey said, "The dip started when he was not given a chance by KKR. But he kept working. I have seen him train from 6 p.m. to 12 a.m. Sometimes I had to pull him out of the ground. He was working on his length and on his speed as he was instructed by the Indian team management."
Pandey also revealed how Kuldeep used to put in extra efforts to regain his momentum, but because of the lack of chances, he didn't get the opportunity to impress the management.
