Kuldeep Yadav, the Indian chinaman who missed out on the call for the international season last year due to knee surgery was taken by Delhi Capitals in the TATA IPL mega auction for 2 crores which happened in Bengaluru this weekend. The chinaman had his base price set at 1 crore.
Kuldeep was not retained by his former side Kolkata Knight Riders before the IPL mega auction and went with the likes of Andre Russell, Venkatesh Iyer, Sunil Narine, and Varun Chakravarthy.
The spinner was part of the Kolkata Knight Riders camp since 2014 and just was able to make 6 appearances for the franchise over the last two editions of the IPL, before being released by the Knights. He has 40 wickets to his name in the league while playing 45 matches for KKR since he made his debut in the 2016 season against his first franchise, Mumbai Indians.
Kuldeep Yadav shared a small video on his Twitter handle to thank all the players, coaches, staff, and the owner’s Shah Rukh Khan and Juhi Chawla for the opportunity he got at KKR and thanked all of them.
Here is the video that the spinner shared on the social media platform.
As a special journey comes to an end, I would like to thank @KKRiders for the faith and trust they showed in me, back in 2014 when I joined the franchise.
I learnt a lot from all the coaches, seniors and teammates. The learnings will surely help me ahead in my career. pic.twitter.com/aANLdwHJkX
