After MS Dhoni’s retirement from international cricket, Chahal and Kuldeep’s performances have dipped massively which has resulted in their exclusion from India’s playing XI.

Yuzvendra Chahal’s Performance IPL 2021

The Yuzvendra Chahal IPL 2021 stint hasn’t got off to a desirable start. While RCB have won the first two games, Chahal has gone wicketless in both.

The leggie leaked 41 runs in his four overs against Mumbai and followed it up by giving away 29 runs against SRH. Chahal would look to get back into his old rhythm and help RCB win their maiden IPL trophy.

Kuldeep Yadav’s performance in IPL 2021

Kuldeep, who has fallen out of favour from the Indian team, once again finds himself out of the reckoning from the KKR side as well. The 26-year old didn’t find a place in KKR’s playing XI in the first two games.

With Varun Chakravarthy and Harbhajan Singh performing well for KKR, Kuldeep will find it difficult to break into the side. However, if an opportunity comes, the leg-spinner will have to grab it with both hands.
