Kuldeep disappointed to miss out on India's tour of England

The wrist-spinner remains hopeful of finding a place in the limited-overs series against Sri Lanka

India spinner Kuldeep Yadav has expressed his disappointment at not being part of the England tour, where the Virat Kohli-led side will play six Tests, including five against England and one against New Zealand in the World Test Championship (WTC) final in Southampton. India have gone in with a jumbo 24-man squad for the England tour, that does not include 

"I am disappointed not to be part of the Indian team because I wanted to go and perform and contribute to the team's win. These things happen, yes you are sad, but at the same time you are ready to perform in the next opportunity," Kuldeep told India News.

The chinaman bowler however is hopeful of getting a place in the limited-overs series against Sri Lanka in July.  "I didn't go there (to England), so hopefully I will go to Sri Lanka and get the chance to perform there. Cricket should continue happening, every player is sad when he is not in the team, everyone wants to remain in the team but sometimes the situation is such that you are not part of the team," added Kuldeep Yadav.

The wrist-spinner believes India should win the WTC final considering the way they have played over the last 3-4 years.

"The sort of cricket we are playing for the last three-four years and the positive atmosphere in the team, even when we play away we treat it as a home series, the way the team played in Australia and then against England, I feel we should and we will win," said Kuldeep.
