The Indian Head Coach Anil Kumble has showered praises on Indian pacer Umesh Yadav as he said that Umesh Yadav looks like taking a fifer everytime he comes to bowl,

“We have seen what is Umesh is capable of. Although, he doesn’t have the kind of wickets that you would expect in a home season as he has played literally all the Test matches. But the way he has bowled, the way he has given us the breakthroughs, he may not have a five-wicket haul but every time he has bowled, he has looked like he will pick up a fifer,” Kumble said before the third Test in Ranchi.

“That’s the kind of maturity and the kind of improvement that he has shown. It is credit to him whichever spell he comes to bowl, he has contributed by picking up those breakthroughs,” he added.

Though Umesh Yadav is yet to take a fifer in last three series but he looks threatening every time he has come to bowl. Especially in the current series against Australia where he looks one of the vicious bowlers for India. In the second Test, he and Ishant Sharma on day two of the game put the batsmen under pressure and did not let them score runs at will.

As a result of a brilliant piece of bowling from these two, the Australian team could just score 197 runs on day two, which helped Indian team to keep a control over the game.

Reverse swing has been the main weapon for the Umesh Yadav as he is now one of the best bowlers for India with the old ball and he has shown his prowess in reverse swing. The way he manages the old ball is a lesson for every other bowler.

Umesh Yadav is slowly developing as one of the best weapons for India, especially in the current season.

Anil Kumble also added that both the teams have moved ahead from the DRS controversy involving Virat Kohli, Steve Smith and Peter Handscomb,

“We’ve moved on from whatever happened in Bengaluru. The focus has to be on the game and I thought we really made a fantastic comeback after losing the first Test.The focus is back on the game,” he said.

The third and the penultimate Test match of the series starts from March 16 in Ranchi.
