Umesh Yadav is an Indian cricketer who plays as a right-arm fast bowler. He plays for Vidarbha in the domestic cricket and Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League.
He was born on October 25, 1987 to Tilak Yadav and Kishori Devi in Nagpur, Maharashtra, India. He also has an elder brother named Ramesh Yadav.
His father, Tilak Yadav hails from Govindpur Village in Deoria, Uttar Pradesh, India and he moved from Jharkhand to Nagpur and started working as a Coal-mine labour in Khaperkheda, Nagpur.
His brother, Ramesh Yadav was acquitted in a robbery case.
He made his One Day International (ODI) debut against Zimbabwe at Bulawayo on May 28, 2010. He gave 48 runs in his 8 overs without taking any wicket in his debut ODI match.
Next year on November 6, 2011, he made his Test debut against the West Indies at New Delhi.
He was the highest wicket-taker for India and third highest overall in the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup. He took 18 wickets at an average of 17.83 and economy of 4.98 in the world cup.
Umesh also holds the record of the highest strike rate in an innings in Test cricket. He scored 31 runs in 10 balls at a strike rate of 310 against South Africa in October 2019 and broke the 15-year-old record previously held by Stephen Fleming.
Before becoming a professional cricketer, Umesh applied to join the army and the police force but was rejected.
He was not selected in his college's cricket team because he had not played for any club and had only played tennis ball cricket. Then he joined the Vidarbha Gymkhana and first time began bowling with a leather ball.
Pritam Gandhe, Vidharbha's Ranji trophy team captain was impressed with his raw pace and he ensured that Umesh represented Air India in a Twenty20 tournament. Pritam Gandhe said about Umesh's early career: "He was raw and wayward. But he was really quick – too quick. I thought that if he lands at least three out of six balls in line with the stumps, he will trouble batsmen."
Umesh Yadav met Tanya Wadhwa in 2010 at a party after an IPL match when she was still studying in the college and she was instantly attracted to his humility and simplicity. After three years of dating, they decided to get married.
Tanya Wadhwa and Umesh Yadav got engaged on April 16, 2013 and tied the knot on May 29, 2013 at Hotel Centre Point in Nagpur. The couple was blessed with a baby girl on January 1, 2021.
Umesh is the fastest Indian bowler with his top speed being 152.5 km/hr.
In 2011, his mother Kishori Devi died due to diabetes, whose expensive treatment his family could not afford.
Initially, Umesh went unsold at the mega auctions of IPL 2022 but was later bought by KKR for Rs 2 crore.
