World Cup 2023: Kuldeep Yadav, a prominent figure for Team India in the World Cup 2023, recently stirred the waters of social media with a seemingly innocent photograph.

As the World Cup 2023 gears up for its kickoff on October 5th, with the opening clash set between New Zealand and England, anticipation is brewing for Team India’s debut match against Australia. Integral to India’s cricket line-up is Kuldeep Yadav. Widely recognized for his bowling prowess, Kuldeep has, time and again, delivered outstanding performances on the field. However, batting remains a chink in his armor. A recent post on his social media added fuel to this topic.

World Cup 2023: Currently stationed in Thiruvananthapuram for a warm-up match, Kuldeep took to social media to share a candid moment. The photograph depicted him savoring coconut water in his hotel room, with another showcasing the serene backdrop of the sea. While to most it appeared as a simple candid shot, it didn’t take long for netizens to stir up a storm in the comments section.

Some comments carried light-hearted jests, with users humorously prodding at his batting skills. “Brother, practice batting. You tend to eat up many balls to get just a run or two!” one user remarked. However, loyal fans were quick to come to his defense. A particularly spirited comment read, “Hope our team crushes the opposition, just like how this coconut was cracked open – especially against Pakistan.”
