Kuldeep Yadav, a 27-year-old Delhi Capitals bowler, recounted Coach Ponting’s encouraging words ahead of the team’s season opener.

The Delhi Capitals kicked off the IPL 2022 with a resounding victory over the Mumbai Indians in their first encounter. However, the franchise has had its ups and downs since then, and they currently sit seventh in the points standings with three wins from seven games.

IPL 2022 would be nothing short of a comeback story for Kuldeep, who appears to have pulled off the best of the left arm wrist for India while competing for a new team.

Although he only appeared in five matches at IPL 2020 and didn’t appear in a single match for Kolkata Knight Riders last season, DC is getting the most out of Kuldeep, and the spinner chinese seems to enjoy every minute of it.

The resurgence of Kuldeep’s bowling is evident, as he correctly pointed out. Except for the match against Rajasthan Royals, he has performed admirably in all his appearances.

Kuldeep opened the IPL 2022 with numbers of 3/18 against five-time champions Mumbai Indians and improved that with 4/35 against his previous franchise Kolkata Knight Riders.

Kuldeep praised Ponting’s training and thanked the former Australia captain for properly cheering him on.

“You appreciate things when you have the flexibility and the ability to express yourself. I remember having a conversation with Ricky during my first training session. I loved every aspect of how he approached me. I was joining another team and hadn’t played in the IPL for over two years.

“’You bowl very well,’ Ricky said. I would like you to complete all 14 games. This is my strategy. Do not worry about anything. We’re here to help if you need anything,”In an episode of the Delhi Capitals podcast, Kuldeep remarked.
