India has won the first two Test matches of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy being played between the Indian team and Australia. In the midst of this series, the Indian team’s star fast bowler Umesh Yadav is immersed in grief.
Umesh Yadav’s father died at the age of 74 on Wednesday i.e. 22 February. Actually, Umesh’s father was running ill for the last few months, but due to no improvement in his condition, he was brought back home, after which he breathed his last yesterday.
Team India’s fast bowler Umesh Yadav is a part of the Border-Gavaskar series, but before the third Test match, a mountain of sorrows broke down on him. His father Tilak Yadav has passed away. As per reports, Umesh will return to Nagpur.
In such a situation, he is unlikely to remain a part of the Border-Gavaskar series. He might be out of the squad soon. Umesh could not be a part of the playing-11 for the first two matches against Australia, but looking at the spin-friendly pitches, it is expected that he will not be able to make it to the next matches as well.
