Indian cricketer Kuldeep Yadav highlighted the difference between playing under the direction of an Indian captain and an international skipper. Over the years, the left arm wrist spinner has plied his trade under the guidance of Indian skippers such as MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Gautam Gambhir, and Dinesh Karthik.

However, the youngster got a taste of playing under a foreign skipper after Eoin Morgan became the skipper of the Kolkata Knight Riders halfway through the 2020 edition. Kuldeep has had no luck in the eleven players since that time. Morgan succeeded Karthik as captain of the KKR.

In fact, in 2021, Kuldeep has yet to play an IPL match. Kuldeep said that in the case of an Indian captain, it is easy to approach conversations on various aspects. However, when it comes to talking to overseas skippers, Kuldeep said the “communication gap is widening”.

International skippers are also expected to speak with players, says Kuldeep Yadav

“It definitely makes a significant difference. I’ve just played under the Eoin Morgan captaincy so far, and I don’t know how he sees me. We had never met much before he was appointed captain of the KKR. I usually saw him when we played against England, ”Kuldeep said on Aakash Chopra’s YouTube channel.

“With an international player the communication gap widens but with an Indian captain you can still talk to him openly and practically walk towards him and ask him why you are not in the starting XI. Rohit sharma is your captain, you can ask him what you want about your role in the team, what he thinks about your abilities and where you can evolve, ”he said

“However, this is not the case with an international skipper. They should also speak with the players and show interest in what is expected of them, ”added Kuldeep.

In 2016, Kuldeep made his IPL debut under Gambhir’s leadership and was said to have a bright future. The performance also earned him a national summons in 2017.

However, since the 2018 edition, the tweaker has had a rough time and hasn’t performed at its best. In 45 IPL matches, Kuldeep only picked up 40 wickets at a save rate of 8.28.
