Kuldeep Yadav has been roped in for the one-off Test against Bangladesh after veteran leg spinner Amit Mishra was ruled out of the game due to a knee injury he sustained during the T20 series against England.
Kuldeep, who plays for UP in domestic circuit, has been in the selection radar for a couple of seasons having troubled a lot of batsmen with his ‘wrong one’ or left armer’s googly.
The young lad had earlier been selected in ODI squad but is yet to make his senior India debut. For Mishra, this comes as a setback as he needs to undergo more medical examination to determine the extent of his injury.
Kuldeep came into prominence in longer version during Duleep Trophy day night matches. He has had a steady Ranji Trophy even though UP had a horrible season. Kuldeep now has 81 wickets in 22 matches.
