Now a part of Virat Kohli’s Team India, Kuldeep Yadav contemplated suicide when 13

Mumbai: Kuldeep Yadav, who is India’s first ever chinaman bowler, has not done too many things wrong since he made his Test debut against Australia in Dharamsala earlier this year. The 22-year-old bowler has also been impressive during his short limited-overs cricket thus far.

“I was a meritorious student in school and wanted to play cricket just for fun. I never thought of making it my vocation. In fact, my father wanted me to play cricket and took me to the coach,” added Kuldeep.
