The newest addition to the Indian pace attack from Vidarbha Umesh Yadav, wants to be a line and length specialist like Mc Grath. He admitted to the media on Sunday at Ahmedabad.
He said `I like McGrath a lot. I won’t be able to bowl like him. But I will try to bowl as good as him and get close to him. McGrath is my hero. The way he was consistent in his line and length… I would also like to stick to the same.’
Inspite of having a captain who was the most efficient Indian Pace bowler and who brought the country the World Cup, Kapil Dev should have been the name expected from the youngster, quite unfortunate
Much could be written about our Kapil. In a nutshell Kapil Dev was India's greatest fast bowler, our greatest fast-bowling allrounder, and led the team to finest triumph: the 1983 World Cup title. He was a connoisseur in his own style, outstanding in his accuracy and ability to swing the ball, usually away from right-handers. And he could hit a ball even more brilliantly than he bowled it, with uncomplicated flair.
