The Coronavirus pandemic has forced all the countries affected by it to enforce the lockdown. In India, the lockdown has been extended to May 3. Meanwhile, several cricketers are spending time at their homes and trying to find ways to interact with fans. One such method is heading towards social media platforms.


Not so long ago, Indian captain Virat Kohli, opener Rohit Sharma and other cricketers were seen chatting in a live session. Now, spinner Kuldeep Yadav has also joined the bandwagon. The Chinaman was recently spotted in ‘Lockdown But Not Out’ show hosted by sports journalist Boria Majumdar organised by FanCode. While talking to Boria, Kuldeep revealed many things and spoke on various aspects of the game.

During the chat, the anchor gave Kuldeep a situation where he is supposed to bowl a super over and asked him to pick three batsmen against whom the left-armer wouldn’t want to ball. Kuldeep responded to the question and first took the names of Mumbai batsman Surya Kumar Yadav.


Kuldeep said that he knows Surya from a long time and he plays spin really well so Surya will be his first pick.

“He is a 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,” said the Kanpur-born bowler.

Kuldeep then went for destructive batsman Rohit and India’s middle-order batter Shreyas Iyer. The 25-year-old regarded both Rohit and Shreyas as the excellent players of spin bowling.


When asked about what he is doing in the lockdown, Kuldeep showed some of the paintings drawn by him and revealed that he really enjoys drawing. Kuldeep showed some awesome pictures of Lord Hanuman and Lord Ram made by him.

The left-arm spinner has so far played 21 T20Is and 60 ODI games, in which he has taken 39 and 104 wickets.
