And coming to Day 2 of the 4th Test, he has got few early wickets of Dawid Maland Craig Overton. Yadav has ended his spell with 3/76 and in comparison with Bumrah – Yadav was a bit more effective than him.
In a recent, Interview Holding said – “Yadav surprised me a little bit because I didn’t expect him to be a little bit more effective than Bumrah and I think he did. Bumrah bowled some fantastic deliveries and both of them showed pretty good control,” Michael Holding said on Umesh Yadav’s Bowling
He has also added – “What disappointed me after the first hour was the fact that they didn’t have anyone to continue the pressure – Thakur came in and bowled but he’s not the type that is going to get wickets like Bumrah and Yadav. There just wasn’t anything there and he’s just not going to be very effective under these conditions.”
Umesh Yadav will look to continue the same form in the 2nd innings and he will play a major role. Currently, the series is tied with 1-1 against India and England.
