The son of a coal miner from Nagpur had a family to support and decided to pursue a career as a police officer. Umesh Yadav, a youngster, took to cricket in a desperate attempt to make ends meet after numerous failed attempts in the police force and the army.
Yadav, who is extremely well-built and exceptionally fit for an Indian fast bowler, has joined Vidarbha, one of the lesser-known teams in the Ranji Trophy. Yadav found and grasped the subtleties of the leather ball under the cautious guidance of team skipper Pritam Gandhe, quickly earning himself a Ranji debut against Madhya Pradesh in 2008. After his first season, he had outstanding stats, taking 20 wickets at an average of 14.60; nevertheless, it was his fast speed, frequently clocking in the mid-140s with significant swing even against the seam, that drew the attention of national selectors.
Young Umesh was a hot favourite with the teams for his pace during the IPL period, and he made his debut in the 2010 tournament. In the same year, Yadav made his One-Day International debut against Zimbabwe, however he failed to impress. He was chosen in the team for the tour to South Africa on a whim in December 2010, but he had to wait almost another year for his coveted Test cap, as he made his Test debut at home against the West Indies, becoming the first Vidarbha player to do so.
MS Dhoni's team almost didn't show up in Australia due to a difficult transition period. Nonetheless, Umesh Yadav was the tour's bright light at the end, impressing with his worker mentality, speed, and, most crucially, the seam movement he was able to extract with the less-pronounced Kookaburra seam. He was India's leading wicket-taker on the trip, with 14 wickets in four Tests.
Yadav made his comeback to international cricket at the 2013 Champions Trophy, and fared well enough to be retained for the 2013 South Africa trip. With more viable options available and the Indian captain's need for control, Yadav remained a peripheral player. He had developed a reputation as a rhythm bowler who could take up wickets when on song but failed to maintain control.
He recovered form just in time for the Indian fast bowling squad to go all out for their title defence in the 2015 World Cup in Australia, taking up 18 wickets and completing the tournament as India's top wicket-taker and third-highest overall. However, many people have been perplexed by the puzzling run-in test. When he's on a roll, he's nearly unplayable, yet he's managed to scatter it all over the pitch-map, making for humiliating reading for an international fast bowler.
Umesh Yadav has a number of devoted franchisees behind him. However, it was the Delhi Daredevils who first saw the raw talent and signed Umesh for the 2010 season, during which he only appeared in a couple of games and had underwhelming statistics. He missed out in 2011 before returning in 2012 with a bang, taking 19 wickets at the age of 23 and finishing fourth in wickets taken.
Before joining the Kolkata Knight Riders in 2014, he enjoyed another successful stint with the country's capital franchise. Umesh got there and quickly won the IPL, with an 11-wicket effort. The India bowler went on to become an important component of the KKR team when the Eden Gardens surface changed. Umesh took 48 wickets during his stint with Kolkata, which is still the fourth-highest total in the franchise's history. Umesh Yadav was purchased by Delhi Capitals in 2021.
