There was more energy in his deliveries, and he suddenly became the match-winner that India captain Virat Kohli said he would be banking on in the World Cup.In this interview, conducted shortly after the IPL, Kuldeep talks about what went wrong for him in that tournament, understanding what he needs to work on, and how he cannot wait to bowl in his debut World Cup.You are heading to England. Of course, it will be a challenge and there will be pressure, considering it's the World Cup. I have a nervous excitement to play in such a big event for the first time.ALSO READ: ESPNcricinfo ODI Bowling Performance of 2018 - Kuldeep Yadav's 6 for 25 v EnglandYou are 13 wickets away from becoming the second fastest to 100 ODI wickets. People are saying I was bowling badly, but I actually did not give away many runs other than that over where I went for 25 runs [against Royal Challengers Bangalore in Kolkata]. And that, too, bowling on the Eden wicket. In my mind I had thought I should bowl round the wicket [to Moeen Ali], but then I felt I could possibly bowl better from over the wicket because the leg-stump boundary was too short, about 55 yards. We were playing at home, but it did not feel like we were bowling in home conditions. But in ODIs, when you get hit, the plan is to figure out how to force the batsman to rotate the strike so you can bowl at the second batsman to create pressure.Former India wicketkeeper Deep Dasgupta said you are a different bowler when you have a captain who sets attacking fields. It just made Kuldeep a different bowler when he knew his captain wanted wickets from him." What do you feel? Whenever I was bowling, there were not many wickets on the scoreboard. I bowled a lot to get my basics right.Is it fair to say you were spinning the ball more in the past, that there were more revs on it in the series in England last year compared to this year's IPL? He believes both of us can take wickets at any time in a match, that we can change the game at any time. When he believes that you are one of his main players, it is a good sign that your captain is supporting you.There are nine league games in the World Cup. Will that be a challenge, considering the batsmen will have more time to figure you out? I have bowled at the death in the IPL and that is an option.What is your World Cup aim?
