Want to be a professional cricketer?
One of the most improved pacers of the Indian cricket team, Umesh Yadav, had given a hilarious response when he was asked to choose between MS Dhoni or Virat Kohli as his favourite Indian captain. MS Dhoni has been one of the most successful captains in the history of international cricket. He has been the most successful Indian captain ever. He is the only captain in world cricket to win all the three major ICC events.
MS Dhoni won the ICC T20 World Cup in 2007, the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2011, and the ICC Champions Trophy in 2013 for the Indian National Cricket Team. Now that MS Dhoni’s sabbatical in world cricket has been the focal point, Umesh Yadav has opined as to who he feels has been the best Indian skipper.
While comparisons continue between Dhoni and Kohli in terms of leadership, the same question was asked to India pacer Umesh Yadav during a recent webisode of Spicy Pitch.\
Umesh Yadav Gives A Hilarious Response To MS Dhoni vs Virat Kohli
Umesh, who recently celebrated ten years in international cricket, however, had one of the best and most honest replies up his sleeves to the ‘Kohli vs Dhoni’ debate.
Umesh, in a hilarious manner, said, “Difficult hai Bhai, aisa question mat puchho (laughs)”.
Umesh made his international debut under Dhoni. However, tam India’s fast bowling unit comprising of Umesh, Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and the recent addition, Navdeep Saini, has emerged as the world’s best pace unit in recent times under Virat Kohli.
