Umesh Yadav Profile | Umesh Yadav Biography

(This Umesh Yadav profile was written on Sep 9, 2014)

Umesh Yadav is the exciting tearaway fast bowler for India apart from Varun Aaron. Unfortunately, Umesh Yadav hasn’t been given many opportunities by either the Selectors or Captain MS Dhoni and so far his services have been grossly underutilized by India!

At his best, Umesh Yadav can clock bowling speeds of 145-148 kmph and has a lovely outswinger. His short ball is deceptively quick off the pitch and can surprise batsmen as Umesh Yadav has a run up which is so casual and more of lumbering up to the crease. Yadav had struggled with accuracy and often has been guilty of spraying the ball on both sides of the wicket. India will be hoping that Umesh Yadav gets to play as much as possible before fading out like several other gifted pacers in the past.

For the record, Umesh Yadav plays his domestic cricket for Vidarbha. This 5ft 10 inch fast bowler had a great outing in the Perth Test in 2011/12 when he took a five-wicket haul. Umesh Yadav is settled in life having married Tanya Wadhwa, a fashion designer by profession.

Umesh Yadav is no doubt a precious talent in Indian cricket simply because of his ability to bowl at 150 kmph a speed that very few bowlers can achieve. This Vidarbha fast bowler who is of a medium height of 5ft 10 inch has a lovely outswinger as his chief weapon. His extra speeds of 145 kmph plus haven’t quite got the desired results for India though except for the odd brilliant spell or two.

Son of a coalmine worker, Umesh Yadav first burst into international cricket in 2010 before having a brief hibernation. It was only in his comeback in the Indian team that Umesh Yadav has been consistently getting selected whether it is Test cricket or the ODI format.

While Umesh Yadav can be red hot quick, he can at the same time spray the ball in both the directions. Accuracy hasn’t been Umesh Yadav’s strength which is the same case with another fast bowler Varun Aaron who is the only other Indian bowler in the present times to clock 150 kmph speeds.
