Former India cricketer Mohammad Kaif had previously chastised KKR for their treatment of Kuldeep Yadav.

Moreover, He suffers from depression if hes not given the bowling or drop from the team. When Dinesh Karthik and Eoin Morgan were captains at KKR, he sit at home and not even be a part of the squad. Any match-winner feels the pressure when you act like this.”
