Early life

Yadav was born in Unnao but raised in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, the son of a brick kiln owner. In an interview, he revealed that it was his father who wanted him to continue playing cricket and even took him to a coach (Kapil Pandey). Inspired by bowling greats Wasim Akram and Zaheer Khan, he wanted to become a left-arm seamer. However, given his slight build, his coach insisted on him becoming a wrist-spin bowler as he was impressed with the turn and variations he was providing unknowingly at the trials. Since then, he started following and watching videos of Shane Warne’s bowling and made him his role model.


Initially, Yadav was signed on by the Mumbai Indians. However, he never really got an opportunity to showcase his talent there. It was finally in 2014 that Yadav was signed by Kolkata Knight Riders at the insistence of Captain Gambhir. Gambhir’s faith in the youngster turned out to be a boon for him and the entire Kolkata Knight Riders team. Cricketer Kuldeep Yadav was bought by the Delhi Capitals in the auction for the 2022 Indian Premier League tournament. In IPL 2024, DC retained Kuldeep Yadav for Rs 2 crore. Finally, all efforts bore fruit and the year 2017 turned out to be the milestone year for Kuldeep Yadav. He made his international debut against Australia in March.

He holds the distinction of being the first slow left-arm chinaman bowler to represent India in Test Cricket. In June 2017, Yadav made his ODI debut against West Indies. The T20I debut followed soon after. Within a year, he made five-wicket hauls in all three formats of the game. With his feat, he joined the coveted league of bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Imran Tahir, and Ajantha Mendis. In January 2019, Yadav was an integral cog against Australia and his stellar performance helped him jump places in rankings. In February 2019, he was at the second position in T20I bowlers rankings. Known to always cheer and support youngsters, the then captain, Kohli has always had Yadav’s back. He played a crucial role in helping Yadav secure the coveted Test berth. Kuldeep Yadav in his test debut, did justice to Virat Kohli’s belief by taking the wicket of David Warner in the Test cricket. Against West Indies, Kuldeep Yadav became the first bowler for India to take two hat-tricks in ODIs on 18 December 2019. In the 2023 Cricket World Cup, Kuldeep Yadav began impressively right from the outset against Australia, claiming 2 wickets for a mere 42 runs. His performance continued to shine in the match against Pakistan, where he secured 2 wickets for 35 runs. However, he faced some challenges against Bangladesh, managing just 1 wicket for 47 runs. A lacklustre bowling display against New Zealand raised concerns about his ability to handle aggressive batting. Nonetheless, he silenced doubters with a remarkable bowling performance versus England, securing 2 wickets for 24 runs. Additionally, in 2024, he achieved a five-wicket haul against England.
