Kuldeep Yadav started the season well with some handful of wickets, with the pitch had some bounce during the initial stage of the competition, he was able to trouble the batsmen with that additional bounce but with the pitches being worn out, Kuldeep Yadav has been an easy target for the opposition batsmen.
