PROFILE

Before he took up cricket, Umesh Yadav wanted to be a police officer, and though he doesn’t fire bullets, his pacy deliveries are a good enough substitute. Yadav took 20 wickets in four matches at an incredible 14.20 for Vidarbha in his debut season in 2008-09, but it was IPL 2010 that gave him the platform to be noticed by a worldwide audience. Playing for Delhi Daredevils, his pace and yorkers impressed those who saw him, and he got into the selectors’ radar. Since then he has played 12 Tests for 43 wickets, and even though he has been erratic on occasions, his pace bounce and ability to surprise batsmen has kept the opposition on its toes. Injuries and a propensity to sometimes leak runs have meant he’s been in and out of the side, but his pace and promise earned him a place in India’s 2015 World Cup squad.
