However, former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra said he would have preferred Kuldeep Yadav instead of Chopra. “You really feel for him, I was there in Sydney when he took those 5-6 wickets, and that was when Ravi Shastri actually said, ‘he is our number 1 overseas,’ and I don’t know whether he has actually played a Test match since then. There was a chance of him playing in Ranchi when he got injured. So where does he go from here? It’s going to be tough. If you don’t play, you don’t become a better bowler by just sitting on the sidelines and warming the bench. So you feel for him,” said Chopra.

Chopra also opined that Kuldeep might leave his IPL franchise Kolkta Knight Riders as well. “He may also want to take a call with the Kolkata Knight Riders. And if he doesn’t want to be there then get released. Because in the end, he needs to play. There was one bad IPL that actually ruled him out of Test cricket is what I heard.”
