Indian cricket team pacer Umesh Yadav has credited captain Virat Kohli and head coach Ravi Shastri for the success of India’s pace-attack success. The pacer was all in praise for the duo and said that bowlers felt supported in route to become the World’s most feared pace-attack. Speaking on the personal prospective the pacer said that the duo backed him to make a comeback and asked to trust on his abilities. The duo also motivated to work harder.

Yadav was ruled out of the squad for the South Africa test series but injury to Jasprit Bumrah gave him another chance. Yadav made the most of the opportunity and he took 11 wickets in just 2 Tests against South Africa and 12 wickets against Bangladesh. The performance was much appreciated by the Cricket pundits as it was achieved on the Indian pitches. That is where a fast bowler is really tested and Yadav had passed that test with flying colors.

Further talking about the pace battery that India is currently having, Yadav said, “I am proud to be a part of this pace-bowling attack. The best part is that all four of us — Bumrah, Shami, Ishant and I — are capable of bowling 140 kmph plus. We are performing well and taking wickets. We all have qualities to perform in any given conditions. Give us any condition and situation, we will go and perform. That’s what makes us stand apart. Bumrah, Shami, Ishant and I enjoy each other’s company. We bowl in unison. We all complement each other”.

In the end Yadav talked about the competition in the current Indian setup. Yadav was vocal about the current scenario and mentioned that a healthy competition brings the best out of players and that brings the best squad.
