Umesh Yadav: Fit and superhit

Umesh Yadav: Fit and superhit

What’s the similarity between Kapil Dev, Javagal Srinath and Umesh Yadav? They are the only Indian fast bowlers to have taken 10 wickets in a match on Indian soil. They have a better record at home. While Kapil and Srinath went on to spearhead India’s fast bowling attack both home and away, Yadav has done that only in home conditions. He has played 24 out of his 40 Tests at home. He is India’s go-to fast bowler at home but rarely features in away series.
