Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal are known to share a great camaraderie both on and off the field. The Indian spin duo has won many games for India together. Such was the impact of both the bowlers together that the pair was nicknamed ‘KulCha’. The best performance came from the duo during India’s tour to South Africa in 2018 when they scalped 35 wickets together in the ODIs. But things changed quickly, and the pair was broken. And it became tough for them to play together.
Either it was Chahal in the squad or it was Kuldeep. But they did not play together. Things got worse for Yadav as the China-man bowler suffered a knee injury in September last year. He then failed to impress on the limited chances he got and was also seen warming benches for KKR in the IPL. But he made a comeback this year as he played in the ODI series against West Indies.
And now Yadav rocked the stage with a three-wicket haul in Delhi Capitals vs Mumbai Indians match on 27 March. Seeing Kuldeep perform, Chahal could not control himself from expressing his excitement as he shared an animated tweet.

Chahal also opened up about his relationship with Kuldeep in his latest interview with the Times of India. The right-arm leggie said that he considers Kuldeep as a younger brother and is very happy for his return. “I am very happy. Kuldeep is like my younger brother,” said Chahal when he was asked about how happy he is at seeing KulCha pair back in Indian cricket.
“We share a very good bond both on and off-field. He was coming back after injuries and raring to go. I missed him on the field. I hugged him when he hit the ground after a long time. I want to share the ball with him and take as many wickets as possible with him. KulCha will dominate again,” he added.
