IND vs ENG: Umesh Yadav Posts A Cryptic Story After His Team India Snub – Umesh Yadav, the Indian fast bowler, has carved a commendable career in Test cricket since his debut in 2011. Known for his raw pace and ability to generate bounce, Yadav has been a valuable asset for the Indian team. Despite occasional inconsistencies, he has displayed his skills in both home and away conditions. However, he has been more potent in home conditions with his reverse swing and his away performances have taken a hit.
Yadav’s memorable performances include his fiery spells against top-ranked batsmen, often breaking partnerships crucial for the opposition. His ability to reverse swing the old ball adds depth to India’s bowling arsenal. While injuries have occasionally hampered his progress, Yadav has displayed resilience in bouncing back stronger. With over 150 Test wickets to his name, he remained an integral part of India’s pace attack, contributing significantly to their success in the longest format of the game.
Despite his stellar performance in the Ranji Trophy this season, Umesh Yadav finds himself out of the Indian Test squad for the current home series against England. Yadav has been out of the test team since the ICC World Test Championship final in 2023. However, his inconsistent displays following the final have seemingly cost him his place in the squad.

The decision was made by the selection committee led by Ajit Agarkar, opting to overlook Yadav despite his impressive form in domestic cricket.

His ability to consistently trouble batsmen and pick crucial wickets has highlighted his value as one of the premier pacers in the country.

Sharing a message on his Instagram story, Yadav wrote: “Kitaabon par dhool jamne se, Kahaaniyan khatm nai hoti (Just because the books are covered with dust the stories won’t stop).” The post hints at Yadav’s frustration with being overlooked despite his achievements, implying that his journey in cricket is far from over despite the setback. Yadav’s post reflects his determination to continue writing his story despite facing obstacles in his career.
