Umesh Yadav becomes 3rd Indian fast bowler after Kapil Dev and Javagal Srinath to pick10 wicket haul in India.
Indian pitches are always known for assisting spinners. Therefore, over the years, we had witnessed many outstanding 10 wickets haul bowling performances by spinners in the Test matches. But not very often we have seen any fast bowler took 5 wicket hauls or 10 wickets in the Test match. Flat Indian pitches are the nightmare for the fast bowlers and adding to that heat and humidity down and out pacers in small spells.
Legendary Indian All-rounder Kapil Dev was the first fast bowler, who picked 10 wicket hauls for India. After him, Javagal Srinathener added his name in the record list by becoming only 2nd pacer to pick 10 wickets in the match. Now, after so many years India got their 3rd fast bowler in the name of Umesh Yadav, who picked his maiden 10 wicket haul in Test cricket in India against West Indies.
