Kuldeep Yadav and Sunil Gavaskar
Spinner Kuldeep Yadav’s surprise exclusion from the playing XI in the second Test against Bangladesh drew strong criticism from the legendary Sunil Gavaskar.
The 28-year-old left-arm wrist spinner had career-best match figures of 8-113 as India defeated Bangladesh by 188 runs in Chittagong.
However, he was replaced by Saurashtra seam bowler Jaydev Unadkat in the second Test at Mirpur.
“Dropping a Man of the Match, that is unbelievable. That’s the only word I can use and it’s a gentle word. I would like to use quite stronger words, but it’s unbelievable that you left out a ‘Man of the Match’, who got eight out of the 20 wickets,” Gavaskar said while commentating on Sony Sports Network, the broadcasters of the series.
“You have got two other spinners [Axar Patel and R. Ashwin]. So surely, one of the other spinners could have been dropped.”
