It was his destiny to represent his country in the blues and the son of a Coal mine worker with his sheer hard work made it to the national squad. Often known as the Vidharba Hurricane, Umesh Yadav unsuccessfully applied in the Indian army and the police force but his luck wasn’t brave and therefore he was not able to make the cut. He started playing with a leather ball in the year 2007-2008 and before that he used to play with a Tennis ball and that is when he made his way into the Vidarbha team in an unorthodox plate League of the Ranji Trophy. Three years later he made it to the Indian team in an away series against Zimbabwe and since then has represented India in 73 one-dayers, 38 Test matches and 5 T20Is.
