New Delhi: Due to the increasing competition in Team India, the career of a star player is on the verge of ending. Actually, for a long time, Virat Kohli and Team India are not giving a player a chance in the playing XI, due to which the career of this player is moving towards the end. The name of that player of Team India is Umesh Yadav.
This player’s career on the verge of ending
Team India has prepared bowling units like Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Siraj, Ishant Sharma, Shardul Thakur, due to which Umesh Yadav does not seem possible to get a chance. Umesh Yadav was already running out of the ODI and T20 team and now he is not getting a chance in the Test team as well.
Kohli is not giving chance
Umesh Yadav gradually got completely discharged from the ODI and T20 team. Now Umesh Yadav is not being given a chance to play in the Indian Test team. This tour of England can prove to be the last for 33-year-old Umesh Yadav, who has played 48 Tests.
Luck didn’t even support
33-year-old veteran fast bowler Umesh Yadav played his last Test match for India on the tour of Australia. On the tour of Australia, he took 3 wickets in the Adelaide Test and one wicket in the Melbourne Test. After that he had to be out of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy due to injury. In the home Test series against England, Umesh could not make it to the team due to lack of fit, while in the final of the Test Championship against New Zealand, he did not get a chance to play in the playing XI.
Test career on the decline
Now something similar is being seen in the England series as well. He was selected in the team in the 5-match Test series against England, but he has not been given a chance in two matches, so now his Test career seems to be on the decline.
Long out of ODI and T20 team
Umesh Yadav has been out of the ODI and T20 team for a long time. Umesh Yadav played his last ODI against West Indies in 2018 and his last T20 match against Australia in 2019. In the 75 ODIs played so far, Umesh Yadav has taken 106 wickets with an average of 33.63 and 9 wickets in 7 T20 matches with an average of 24.33. By the way, the chances of his return in both the formats of limited overs are seen to be negligible at the present time.
This bowler became a threat to Umesh Yadav
In recent times, the team management and captain Virat Kohli have expressed more confidence in the young fast bowlers in place of Umesh Yadav. These bowlers include names like Shardul Thakur and Mohammad Siraj. Along with these bowlers, the team has names of players like Navdeep Saini, T Natarajan and Deepak Chahar as options.
