The Coronavirus pandemic has brought the cricketing action to a standstill. Literally no cricket is being played across the world and it has led to the cricketers also staying at home during the days when the IPL is in full flow. They have resorted to social media to either interact with the fans or their teammates during this lockdown period.
The situation is similar with Kuldeep Yadav as well who was supposed to play for the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) this season as well after the franchise retained him for this season. Even he is stuck at home and interacted with the famous sports journalists Boria Majumdar revealing some of the interesting insights about his career and also got candid answering a few interesting questions during the chat.
T20 matches generally go down the wire and at times, the match even ends in a tie. A Super Over takes place in that case to decide the winner. Kuldeep Yadav was given a similar situation and asked to pick two batsmen whom he wouldn’t want to bowl at in the Super Over.

Answering to this question, the chinaman first picked Mumbai Indians batsman Surya Kumar Yadav stating that he plays spin well and the fact that they both know each other for a long time works in the latter’s favour. “He is very good player of spin. He plays my bowling really well. I knew him for 8-9 years so he is the one who plays really well against spin, Kuldeep said in Fancode’s special segment ‘Lockdown But Not Out’.
The 25-year-old also picked Rohit Sharma and Shreyas Iyer as the toughest batsmen to bowl at in the Super Over terming them also as very good players of spin. During the chat, he also spoke about the possibility of playing the IPL behind closed doors and felt that it would give an extra edge to the bowlers. According to Kuldeep Yadav, no crowd will give confidence to the bowlers as there will be less pressure on them.
