152.5 kmph and you have batsmen ducking as the leather ball singes uncomfortable close to the batsmen’s ears.
It was Glenn McGrath the great australian paceman who remarked “he’s got raw talent, good pace and can generate good bounce. He’s got a lot going for him at the moment.
Yet my experience with Umesh Yadav, the fastest Indian bowler Indian has ever had, has been that of a fiery bowler deep within before his run up, but the gentlest guy off the field!!
Yadav is fit, strong, quick, and gets the ball to swing late. More importantly, he attacks the stumps, and doesn’t wait for edges.
Am definiately going to root for him in the final qualifying matches ahead!
