Delhi Capitals obtained the administrations of Umesh Yadav at his base cost after he was delivered by Royal Challengers Bangalore following a three-year spell with Virat Kohli’s side. Previous India cricketer, Gautam Gambhir was absolutely astounded when Umesh Yadav was sold for just Rs. 1 crore in the IPL 2021 Auction, while other less experienced abroad bowlers packed away a lot heftier sum.
Umesh didn’t have anything to show in the wickets section two or three games he played last season and spilled runs at 11.86 per over; he was dropped for adolescents Navdeep Saini and Mohammed Siraj in the underlying stage and wasn’t picked once more.
Gautam Gambhir accepts that somebody with the experience and capacity – but inconsistent – of Umesh Yadav ought to have gone for significantly more. The right-arm pacer has been a normal element in the IPL since 2009; he played his initial five for the Delhi establishment (at that point Daredevils), at that point four seasons for Kolkata Knight Riders under Gautam Gambhir, trailed by three years under Kohli.
“I was absolutely shocked when he(Umesh Yadav) went for ₹1 crore, there are not many fast bowlers who can bowl 135-140. Yes, he can be a little hot and cold, but when he is hot he can be very hot, but then not many teams went for him,” quoted by Gambhir on Star Sports
“It was a great buy for Delhi because Delhi wanted someone like Umesh Yadav with that kind of an experience because Ishant Sharma is not fit, they had to bowl someone like Tushar Deshpande, where there was not enough experience. Now they have got Umesh Yadav, so hopefully, he can do well for them”.
Now let’s see, the call to buy Umesh Yadav will be valuable for the Delhi franchise or not, all we can predict that this season will be definitely with action packed events.
