Kuldeep Yadav Complete Bio & Career

Kuldeep Yadav started as a fast bowler when he first joined a cricket academy in Kanpur but was asked by his coach Kapil Pandey to switch to something much rarer - left-arm wrist spin. The change wasn't smooth - Kuldeep admitted that he had even tried once - but he soon realised bowling left-arm wrist spin was the way forward for him. And he was good at it too, having not only solid control over the length but also a potent wrong'un among his variations.
There haven't been too many bowlers of his ilk in India, and Kuldeep, therefore, attracted immediate attention after successful stints at the Under-19 level.
Kuldeep played his first India U-19 game in April 2012 as a 17-year old and despite consistently taking wickets, he stayed below the radar. It was the 2014 edition of the U-19 World Cup in Dubai that pushed his stocks higher. After a wicketless spell in the opening game against Pakistan, Kuldeep picked up a hat-trick in the next game against Scotland.
He garnered a niche for himself soon and thus was picked by IPL franchise KKR even before the U-19 World Cup. He, however, didn't got many matches but was still retained by KKR for the coming season. He along with Sunil Narine formed a formidable pair and troubled the best of batsmen. He finally got selected for India's ODI team in 2014 even before he made his first class debut. He soon established himself at the domestic level and a national call up was soon on the cards. After Ravinder Jadeja and R. Ashwin failed to make any impact at the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy, he was included in the team and since then has never looked back. He took a hat-trick in ODIs against the visiting Australia in 2018 and that made him one of the most feared spinners in the shorter formats of the game. He has been picked for India's World Cup Squad in 2019 and is expected to show his magic at the showcase event.
