IPL 2019: Umesh Yadav Is Short On Confidence – RCB’s Ashish Nehra
Of late, Umesh Yadav is hitting the downside bar in his career graph. He is losing his grip on the ball and failing to deliver those match-winning performances for the team. Yadav also lost a place on the world cup squad. Meanwhile, Ashish Nehra backs the express fast bowler.
Umesh Yadav lost his radar against Delhi Capitals in the last game alongside Navdeep Saini, which dented their chances in the middle. They gave away 36 runs in the final over, which has been the case in the recent past for RCB bowling department.
Difficult to accept the present:
Ashish Nehra feels that Umesh Yadav is currently not in a great mindset, as the things haven’t favoured him whatsoever in the recent past. He quoted that being omitted from the World Cup squad could be playing in his mind, which is always a difficult task.
“Umesh is short on the confidence especially because of the way he has performed in the last 4-5 months. He hasn’t been playing for India. Yadav is not a part of the World Cup, it’s not easy for any cricketer to take that. He is not even in the standby,” Nehra said after RCB’s 16-run loss to Delhi Capitals here on Sunday.
However, Nehra feels that Yadav will get into his zone sooner than later to make things fall in a place. He believes that he got enough skill and talent to make a comeback into the Indian National Cricket Team as quickly as possible.
”That definitely must be playing on his mind. He is someone who has always been good. Umesh has plenty of skill and talent. He bowls really well with the new ball, last year that was the mantra of his success. He should look to make a comeback in the Indian team and he knows what he has to do for that,” Nehra added.
Bowlers missed the trick – Ashish Nehra
The bowling mentor isn’t pleased whatsoever with the performance of the fast bowlers on Delhi track. He feels that bowling in Delhi is way easier than bowling in Bangalore. Nehra feels that Umesh and Saini missed the trick in the end overs.
“I don’t think it was a 188-run wicket. I feel we could have bowled much better. Compared to Bombay, Bengaluru it was an easier wicket to bowl on. Bowlers missed the trick especially the way Navdeep Saini and Umesh Yadav bowled the last over. 36 are too many runs. Anything more than 160 batting second on this wicket is tough,” Nehra said.
Well, as Nehra said, it is important for Umesh Yadav to get over the past quickly and make things fall in place. As far as RCB is concerned, they are already out of the tournament.
