Umesh Yadav’s impressive figure in powerplay has kept him on the list of legendary cricketers like Zaheer Khan, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, and Sandeep Sharma. The Vidharbha pacer has, so far, taken 49 wickets in the powerplay, being 4th on the list to do so. The list counts Sandeep Sharma, 53 wickets, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, 52 wickets, Zaheer Khan, 52 wickets, followed by Umesh Yadav, who has picked 49 wickets.

His ability to achieve early swing and unsettle the openers puts him ahead of the list with the likes of Bhuvaneshwar Kumar.
