Last night’s match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders turned into a nightmare for KKR bowler, Kuldeep Yadav, who was completely broken after Moeen Ali hit him for 3 sixes and 2 fours in his final over of the match at Eden Gardens.
Kuldeep Yadav, one of India’s most talented bowlers of India, is having worst season of IPL this time. He finished off his overs with 1 for 59 off his 4 overs, figures that will give him nightmares for a long time. This is now the joint-most expensive spell by a spinner in IPL History.
What followed after he delivered one of his worst overs was something that broke everyone’s heart. Kuldeep was shattered and his eyes welled up, Nitish Rana went up to console Kuldeep but he was clearly too broken and distressed with his spell.
His spell has frown every Indian as Kuldeep Yadav was considered as a major threat in the 2019 Cricket World Cup but watching him like this was very saddening. In the previous 9 matches that he has played in this season, Kuldeep Yadav has picked up only 4 wickets at an average of 71.50 and now it has become a matter of concern for many.
From cricket experts to twitterati, everyone was talking and criticizing the performance of Kuldeep Yadav, after the match. Here, have a look at some of the reactions :

So a different #RCB has come to bat after the halfway mark…… Kuldeep's form a worry. Buy why did he bowl the 4th?

Kuldeep is having a disastrous IPL by all means. Only saving grace has been his economy rate. Even that took a beating this game. I can only imagine the level of outrage and trolls had Jaddu or Ashwin had went through such slump.
