Tim Southee of New Zealand and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have praised his teammate Umesh Yadav for his outstanding efforts in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 thus far. Umesh can also return to India’s T20I squad, according to the Kiwi pacer.

The 34-year-old has been brilliant for the two-time champions this season, providing vital breakthroughs in the field constraints by maintaining a disciplined line and length. In IPL 2022, the express pacer has taken 10 wickets from five matches, with an economy of 6.60 and the most number of dot balls bowled (62).

This season, the right-arm bowler has taken off some big fish, including Indian captain Rohit Sharma and run-machine Virat Kohli in the powerplay. Umesh produced a brilliant double-wicket maiden in the middle overs against Punjab Kings, limiting the Kings to 137.

Umesh was purchased by KKR at his basic price of INR two crore in the IPL mega auction in 2022.

Umesh Yadav is one of my favorites: Tim Southee

“I’m a big supporter of Umesh; he’s a fantastic bowler.” When we were both at RCB, I was privileged enough just to try to share the ball with him a few times. Umesh’s bowling style is suited to the manner he’s being managed. Southee was reported by as saying, “I can’t see why he wouldn’t do well for India in T20 cricket if he keeps performing the way he’s been doing.”

Southee praised the team’s management but stated the credit for getting the best out of Umesh should go to the team’s think tank.

“The KKR’s utilization of him has been exceptional.” Southee continued, “(Head coach) Brendon (McCullum) and (captain) Shreyas (Iyer) have utilized him as an attacking weapon with the new ball, using his capabilities with the new ball and coming back in the middle overs to try and pick up wickets, making the phase a little easier.”

Meanwhile, the two-time champions will face Sunrisers Hyderabad in their next match at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on April 15 (Friday).
