Indian Skipper Virat Kohli was showering praise on Umesh Yadav for single-handedly taking responsibility of Indian fast bowling once Shardul Thakur goy injured after bowling just 10 deliveries.
“Outstanding. To bowl like that in both innings was a great effort on his part, and showed the kind of fitness level he has, to keep running in and bowling 140 clicks throughout the game … picking wickets, importantly, not just completing overs.” Kohli Said.
“I think this was the standout performance in his career, and something he can build on.”
“Not many people realise, but he’s a very, very talented bowler,” commented Kohli. “He can bowl unplayable deliveries every now and then, which we experience in the nets all the time. He’ll bowl a ball that you’ll feel you couldn’t have done anything else apart from getting out.
“He’s gaining more confidence about his own game, especially in Test cricket he’s come a long way. He understands his bowling really well.” added Indian Skipper.
