Indian speed star, Umesh Yadav is all set to make a comeback to the IPL 2017 for Kolkata Knight Riders. Umesh has been pulled himself out of an opening couple of IPL games due to the work overload on him during his international stint for India.
Umesh has been thoroughly impressive during India’s 13-match test season and yielded results for his side even on slow Indian tracks with his pace and swing. The application he showed in this season was one to remember as he delivered whenever it mattered the most.
Confirming the availability of Umesh Yadav, KKR CEO Venky Mysore revealed in a tweet which read ”Hearty congrats, Umesh Yadav. Exceptional Performance for Team India. Enjoy the well-deserved break. See You in Kolkata fresh and recharged on April 10th!”
The addition of Umesh Yadav in the side will be the big boost for KKR as Umesh Yadav is currently enjoying the form of his life. He has been terrific in home season and KKR could probably expect the same show from their star Indian pacer.
KKR already comprises a lethal bowling attack with the likes of Trent Boult, Chris Woakes, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Sunil Narine and Kuldeep Yadav. The addition of Indian pacer, Umesh Yadav will bolster their side and also the team gets the services from an overseas player.
Knight Riders are set to start their campaign against Gujarat on April 7th and then moves to Mumbai to face Rohit-led Mumbai Indians on April 9th. They will play their first home game of the season on April 13th against Punjab in which Umesh Yadav is set to mark his return.
Here is the Confirmation tweet –
Hearty congrats @y_umesh. Exceptional perf 4 #TeamIndia. Enjoy the well deserved break. C u in Kol fresh & recharged on April 10! @KKRiders
