The pacer is a part of the core Indian bowling setup.

Umesh Yadav conceded 65 runs in 4 overs at Feroz Shah Kotla (Homeground of DD) and went wicketless. It was one of those learning curves in his career which has made him a bowler he is today. Considering the RCB batting lineup of back then, it could have been even worse.
