Indian spinner Kuldeep Yadav said that Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the former captain of Team India, always guided him but he did not depend on him. He also said that the success of a bowler depends on teamwork.
Kuldeep Yadav told our associate newspaper Times of India that a wicket-keeper is the best judge of a bowler. He said, 'Mahi Bhai (Mahendra Singh Dhoni) always guided me. This is because the wicketkeeper is the best judge for a bowler. Mahi Bhai has a lot of experience and he knows how a batsman will play the ball.
He added, 'It all depends on teamwork. Mahi Bhai has not played a match since the World Cup and I do not need to prove anything to anyone. I do not even want to say that I depended on them. I am trying to improve my bowling art more.
Some cricketers targeted Dhoni
Kuldeep, the lone Indian bowler who has taken a hat-trick twice in ODIs, said that both the paceer and the spinner would face difficulties due to the ban on saliva. He said, 'When you put a good shine on the ball, it helps to have the ball drifted for the spinner. The pacers will also be difficult. We have been applying saliva to the ball since childhood and hence changing that habit will also be a challenge.
He further said, 'It is not easy to spin the ball with the wrist. There is a good rapport between me and Yuzvendra Chahal but we could not play together after the World Cup. It all depends on team combination and selection. You have to mold yourself according to the needs of the team.
Kuldeep has played 6 Tests, 60 ODIs and 21 T20 Internationals so far in his career. He has 24 wickets in Tests, 104 in ODIs and 39 wickets in T20 International.
