IPL 2017: Kuldeep Yadav Can Be Useful If Picked For Champions Trophy, Says Brad Hogg

Chinaman Kuldeep Yadav  has not had the best of IPL's so far, having been inconsistent with his performance for the KKR [Kolkata Knight Riders] but former Aussie chinaman Brad Hogg feels that the young spinner should be included in the squad for upcoming Champions Trophy that is to be played in England starting June 1.

A Chinaman bowler himself, Hogg has an brink over other experts while analysing the Indian spinner abilities, which he feels will help India if he is picked for the ICC Champions Trophy in England.

Hogg has been Yadav's team-member in the KKR franchise of the Indian Premier League.

"Yes, Kuldeep can be effective in England. The best cricketers are the ones who can adapt to foreign conditions," Hogg told PTI during an interaction.

"Great thing about the sport is no two countries are same. There is always something different that adds to the variety of the different individuals. One of his (Kuldeep) next job will be to bowl on different wickets."

"He is a different bowler for sure. There aren't too many chinaman bowlers in world cricket at the moment. Kuldeep has great variety and strength of any spinner is his variations. You may know all the tricks in the trade but no point using the tricks if you haven't yet mastered a stock delivery," said Hogg.

"If you are playing 50-over cricket, a leg-spinner can be a bit more slower and use his leg-break. In Test cricket, it's entirely different where you have to be very patient. Coming to T20, one needs to be a bit more quicker through the air," he said.
