Umesh Yadav desperate to return to white-ball cricket


The Indian cricket team is currently having a great time in New Zealand. Virat Kohli’s boys have won all of their three T20Is against the Kiwis. One of the major reasons behind the triumph was India’s bowling. Mohammed Shami’s outstanding last over gave the men in blue a chance to take a lost cause to a super over. In what is regarded as India’s one of the best pace attacks ever, Umesh Yadav is not a member. However, he is eager to make a comeback.umesh-yadav-ishant-sharma-m-shami

A few years ago, Yadav was one of India’s most precious assets. He was taking wickets for fun in the limited-overs format. But things have recently gone downhill, and the pacer hasn’t played an ODI game for more than a year. His last T20I was also around a year ago. With Jasprit Bumrah’s place sealed and secured and Mohammed Shami’s impressive form, Yadav’s chances of a comeback look slim.

But the Nagpur-born player is ready to give all it takes to get the blue jersey back. “I am desperate to play white-ball cricket. Who wants to sit outside the ground? I am also human. I am working really hard and am very eager to play white-ball cricket again. Be it T20Is or ODIs, I eagerly want to make a comeback,” Yadav said in an interview to Times of India.umesh-yadav-test-

Yadav confident of a trip to New Zealand

Though it has been a while since we have seen the 32-year-old in a blue shirt, Yadav is still an important member of the side in Tests. He played in the historic Day-Night Test against Bangladesh at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. India will play two Tests against New Zealand, and Yadav is hopeful of getting a call from the selectors.

“I am eager to play red-ball cricket in New Zealand. I have performed well in recent times and I’m in good touch too. My series against Bangladesh was good too. I am pretty positive about my selection for the New Zealand Test series. If I am selected, I am going to give my 100 percent,” the owner of 142 Test wickets confidently stated.
