Notably, star pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel got ruled out of the upcoming Asia Cup 2022 due to their respective injuries.

According to the same Dainik Bhaskar report, Kuldeep’s coach Aril Anthony has said that Chahar will miss the tournament after suffering an injury and Kuldeep has been included in the squad.

Kuldeep, who made his first-class debut for Madhya Pradesh in November 2018 in the 2018–19 Ranji Trophy, was bought by the Rajasthan Royals at the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 mega auction for INR 20 lakh. He impressed everyone with his ability to bowl deliveries consistently at over 145 kmph in the tournament.
