Kuldeep Yadav shone for his new franchise Delhi Capitals in their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 opening match against 5-time champions Mumbai Indians at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday.

Kuldeep Yadav had been frustrated warming the benches over the last 2 seasons for Kolkata Knight Riders as he found it difficult to break into the side that had Varun Chakravarthy and Sunil Narine. He did not play a single match in 2021 and only 14 over the 2020 and 2019 seasons for KKR.

However, after getting bought by Delhi for Rs 2 crore at the mega

auction, Kuldeep got an opportunity as early as the first game of their season. And the left-arm wrist-spinner made full use of it.

Kuldeep picked up 3 wickets, including that of Rohit Sharma (41) and Kieron Pollard (3), as he repaid the faith shown in him by the Delhi franchise. Kuldeep got his lengths spot on and bowled quicker than usual, giving away just 18 runs in his 4-over spell.

On a day when Axar Patel gave away 40 runs and Shardul Thakur leaked aplenty (47 in 4 overs), Kuldeep kept Delhi in the hunt, choking the power-packed Mumbai batting unit.
