The Selectors of Indian Cricket Team announced a 17-member squad for the upcoming tour of Team India to Ireland for the T20I series. A few cricketers who have been in contention to get the call have been left out from the 17-member squad for Ireland Tour. Some players have also got called up that no one had expected. Kuldeep Yadav didn’t get a place in the Indian T20 squad against Ireland which was announced BCCI. This will be more like Team B of India. The majority of regular players have been rested for India Tour of Ireland. In their absence, many young players have been given the chance in the squad. Even then some deserving players failed to get a place in the Indian Team. Kuldeep Yadav’s exclusion from the 17-member squad is quite shocking because he made a comeback in IPL 2022 and was also in the squad against South Africa. Fans are not happy with his omission from the squad and want to know Why Kuldeep Yadav is not selected in Indian Team against Ireland?
Indian Team is all set to travel to Ireland to play two T20 International matches in Dublin. This would be India’s first visit to Ireland since 2018. The two team have played against each other only on three occasions in T20s and it was Indian team who emerged victorious on all occasions. The 1st match of T20 series will take place on June 26 while the 2nd match will take place on June 28. Hardik Pandya has been appointed the captain of Indian Team for the series against Ireland.
Why Kuldeep Yadav is not selected in Indian Team against Ireland?
Kuldeep Yadav is not selected in the Indian squad for Ireland Tour because he has been injured. The Left-arm spinner also missed the entire T20I series against South Africa after getting hit on his right hand while batting in the nets during practice. Therefore, he was unavailable for selection in the squad against Ireland.
Kuldeep has been out of the Indian team for a long time. In IPL also, he was not getting opportunities to play with KKR. In IPL 2022, he switched to a different franchise Delhi Capitals and made a terrific comeback. The Chinaman had a terrific IPL as he was amongst the top wicket-takers. Owing to this, he was also picked for the Indian Team for the T20I series against South Africa.
However, due to the injury he missed the series. Now he will also miss the Ireland series.
