On Friday, Indian cricketer Umesh Yadav produced a lion-hearted attempt to come back figures of 3 for 106 in 31 overs at the JSCA International Stadium.
Indian pace bowler Yadav was eager to talk about his teammate Ravindra Jadeja, who took his eighth five-wicket haul in Tests said at the end of the second day’s match.
“Jaddu (Jadeja) is going through the best phase of his career. He has got a few five-wicket hauls and is bowling really well. I think he’s the kind of bowler whose bowling style suits all types of pitches.”
“He has a lot of variations and he picks his spots and keeps pegging away tirelessly. If he gets a tiny rough he knows where to pitch it and he usually reaps the rewards,” said Yadav.
Yadav stated that he feels bowling to Aussie skipper Steve Smith is quite a challenge, “At times it is quite difficult against him. You in with a particular plan but he often changes his stance, shuffles from leg to off stump, upsetting your calculations,” he said.
The Vidarbha pace bowler believes that it was a good attempt for the Indian team bowler to limit Australia to 451 runs.
“It is difficult to stop runs on this pitch. They (Australia) took four-and-a-half sessions to score 450 and in one session we have already managed to score 120. The outfield is fast and singles keep coming so we will try to get these runs,” concluded Yadav.
The 29-year-old Indian pace bowler said about the success to his newfound level which realises the strengths and weakness.

He added, “I am doing the same thing but the confidence level is much higher as I have played more matches and I have come to realise my strengths and weaknesses.”
