Kuldeep Yadav is waiting to surpass Virat Kohli's record


Kuldeep Yadav is in great rhythm in the current season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). This leg-spinner appears to be in front of the opponent with the ball in almost every match. He is playing a great role in the victory of his team Delhi Capitals (DC) by taking regular wickets. He is also getting the award for playing well.

This time Yadav stood in front of a different record where he is only one step behind Virat Kohli. Virat Kohli has topped the list of cricketers who have won the most 'Man of the Match' awards in a single season of IPL. In 2016, Kohli won the Match of the Year award five times in a single season for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). This is the highest record so far in IPL history.

This time, Yadav is on his way to making Kohli's record of his own. He has won the best player award in four matches so far in this year's IPL. This is the highest so far in this IPL. At the same time, it is also the second-highest record in IPL history. Yadav will share Kohli's record if he wins this award in another match.

Furthermore, the 27-year-old batter has a golden opportunity ahead of him. Yadav will break Kohli's 5-years record if he wins the match best award only twice this year. The Delhi bowler is getting enough matches for this. If he can maintain the continuity of his sharp form till the end, Yadav can easily surpass Kohli. Can't wait to witness this milestone!

In the current IPL, Yadav has taken 17 wickets with the ball so far. He is also at number two on the list of top wicket-takers in the tournament. Yuzvendra Chahal has taken the most 18 wickets. Even though he is only 1 wicket behind him, Yadav wants the best wicket-taker award to go to Chahal. This reason being Chahal supported him when he was in bad moments.
