Kuldeep Yadav, the Indian cricketer who recently expressed his unhappiness over the fact that he is not getting enough chances to play in the matches for the last two years, has created a controversy after a photo of him went viral in which he is seen taking a COVID-19 vaccination shot.
On May 15, the cricketer Kuldeep Yadav posted a photo on the micro-blogging site Twitter in which he is seen getting vaccinated. The caption of the tweet was, “जब भी मौका मिले तुरंत टीका लगवाएं। सुरक्षित रहें क्योंकि COVID19 के खिलाफ लड़ाई में एकजुट होने की आवश्यकता है (Get vaccinated whenever you get the chance, Stay safe as we all need to fight together against COVID-19)”.

The photo created controversy as the cricketer from Kanpur was seen getting the vaccination shot in a guest house in place of a hospital. Soon an investigation was launched by the Kanpur administration and later on Magistrate Himanshu Gupta revealed that the cricketer got vaccinated at Jageshwar Hospital in Govind Nagar and the photo that he posted was clicked at Kanpur Nagar Nigam guest house.
The administration also added that the spinner was at the 136th spot in the official register of the hospital and the pic shared by him on Twitter was just a social media gimmick.
Recently, the Indian spinner has accepted that it is getting tough for him mentally as he has not got enough chances in the last two years. Almost after two years, he was able to make his comeback in the Indian test team when he played the Chennai test match against England but after that, he was dropped from the team for the remaining test matches. He was also included in the playing XI for the two ODIs but after that, he was dropped again.
What demotivated the spinner the most was that the team management of the IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders didn’t include him in the playing XI for even a single match in the IPL 2021 which has now been postponed due to COVID-19.
