With a staggering beginning to IPL 2022 for the Kolkata Knight Riders, Umesh Yadav has made a monster stride towards resuscitating his white-ball career. Umesh, who didn’t play a solitary match in last year’s IPL, was picked up base cost of ₹2 crores in the sped-up piece of the mega auction by KKR after the veteran right-arm pacer went unsold first and foremost.

Umesh reimbursed the confidence displayed in him by the KKR executives with some power-pressed exhibitions in the current edition of the IPL. He has up to this point got 10 wickets in 5 games with an economy rate of under 7.

While speaking on Cricket Live on Star Sports Irfan said, “Umesh has everything in his arsenal right now. He’s bowling outswing, he’s bowing brilliant inswingers and his rhythm is perfect.

“He went unsold on day one at the IPL 2022 mega auction and then KKR added him to their squad by buying his services at base price. Umesh must have been hurt and that is why he is determined to prove himself. He is putting up a show in this season for KKR who showed faith in him.”

Umesh is right now second in the rundown of purple cap holders this season, behind Rajasthan Royals’ spinner Yuzvendra Chahal.

“The way Umesh has performed in this IPL season is simply unbelievable. He seems to be in the form of his lifetime.

“The team management didn’t give him a big role at the start of the season because no one had an idea of his true potential. But now he is showcasing his talent and proving what he’s capable of,” Harbhajan said.

Umesh will expect to proceed with his great form when KKR takes on Sunrisers Hyderabad.
