‘You’ve to bring ‘Kul-Cha’ back; don’t know why selectors broke that partnership’: India great backs spin duo for T20 WC

 Last year’s T20 World Cup saw Ravi Ashwin, a seasoned tweaker, return to the white-ball squad, with Varun Chakaravarthy and Rahul Chahar the other two spinners. In the present day, the Indian team management has two well-known stars competing for a slot in this year’s T20 tournament in Australia. Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav, who were once key cogs in India’s wheel, have had a fantastic IPL season thus far. Chahal leads the Purple Cap race with 22 wickets, while Kuldeep is second with 18 catches. Both tweakers have had some incredible experiences. Chahal got four wickets against Kolkata Knight Riders, including a hat-trick, while Kuldeep earned four player-of-the-match awards for his new Delhi Capitals squad.

 

Former India spinner Harbhajan Singh has welcomed the reinstatement of ‘Kul-Cha’ for the T20 World Cup in 2022, stating that the selectors should not have split the spin duo in the first place.

 

“I don’t know why they (selectors) broke that partnership which was doing well for India. I certainly believe that you have to bring ‘Kulcha’ back, Kuldeep and Yuzvendra, I think they have been brilliant for team India,” Harbhajan said during the launch event of Dream Set Go.

 

“When they played together, they took wickets in the middle overs, whether it was T20s, ODIs, or any format, they played together, they were very successful,” Harbhajan further added.
