It is difficult for any player to be in consistent performance. Especially in the career of a spinner bowler, there are many ups and downs. KKR’s team kept Kuldeep outside. In such a situation, till the time any bowler does not come on the field, how can we expect him to perform well. Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting has assured Kuldeep Yadav that he will not discriminate against him. Talking about this he said,

“You have to be patient with bowlers like Kuldeep. T20 cricket has its ups and downs with spin bowlers. How Kuldeep performs will not make any difference. We and our teammates will treat him the same way.
