IPL 2021: Kuldeep Yadav Sent Back To India After Sustaining A Severe Knee Injury

Kuldeep Yadav

Kuldeep Yadav, a left-arm spinner, has suffered a serious knee injury and would most likely miss the entire domestic season as a result. He also returned to India in the middle of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 UAE leg, according to reports.

Kuldeep Yadav, a member of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), will undergo extensive rehabilitation before returning to the field. He twisted his knee during a practise session with KKR, resulting in the injury, according to reports.

“Yes, we got the information that Kuldeep sustained a nasty knee injury during a practice session in UAE. Apparently while fielding, he twisted his knee and it was really bad at that point.

“There was no chance that he could have taken any further part and was sent back to India,” a senior BCCI official tracking developments of IPL teams told PTI on condition of anonymity.

According to reports, the Chinaman recently underwent surgery in Mumbai and will not return to cricket for at least four months, as knee injuries typically take longer to recover. Kuldeep Yadav may be healthy after the Ranji Trophy, according to a source.

“Knee injuries are generally bad. It’s a very long process from starting to work and then getting strength back through intense physiotherapy sessions at the NCA, followed by light intensity training and finally starting with net sessions.

“It can’t be said with certainty that Kuldeep will be match ready by the time Ranji Trophy ends,” another IPL source privy to the developments said.

The spinner, in particular, recently shared a photo on Twitter with KKR head coach Brendon McCullum, who is celebrating his birthday on Monday. The photographs are believed to be old, and Kuldeep has already arrived in India.

Meanwhile, Kuldeep Yadav has been out of India’s plans for a long time, but he recently played in the India limited-overs series against Sri Lanka and had a good performance. That, however, was not enough to secure his place in India’s T20 World Cup roster for 2021.
