Chennai . Team India suffered a humiliating defeat in the first Test match at the hands of England and lost by a score of 227. The Indian batsmen were very disappointed in this Test and after chasing the target of 420 for Team India to win, the team was reduced to just 192 runs in the second innings. Although captain Virat Kohli made an effort by playing a 72-run innings, but nothing happened. There are many questions arising after this time that Team India got and one of the reasons why finally experienced Kuldeep Yadav did not get a chance in the team. Virat replaced Shahbaz Nadeem in place of Kuldeep who managed to do well and took five wickets.
Now Virat Kohli explained why Kuldeep Yadav was not included in the playing eleven. Virat Kohli said that if two off-spinners were in the playing eleven in the team, then Kuldeep also spins something similar and takes the ball out. We were completely clear about which playing XI we have to play with. We knew who we had to chance and what our team should be. We have no regrets about not giving Kuldeep Yadav a place. Now we will consider what the team should be in order to bring more variation in bowling.
Kuldeep Yadav was expected to play in the first Test match, but Virat Kohli and team management surprised everyone by not including him in the playing XI, which was also questioned by many former cricketers. Akshar Patel was ruled out of the first Test after an injury, after which Shahbaz Nadeem and Rahul Chahar were included in the team and then Shahbaz was included in the playing eleven. Now the second Test match between India and England will be played in Chennai from February 13.
