Umesh Yadav last played for India in a Test match in the World Test Championship final against Australia.

Following the continuation of Umesh Yadav’s absence from the test, he publishes a mysterious Snapchat story.

The most recent time that Umesh Yadav played for India in a test match was in June of the previous year, when he participated in the World Test Championship (WTC) final against Australia.

It would appear that Umesh Yadav has been anxiously anticipating the opportunity to once more don the whites for India. After the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) revealed a new-look lineup for the final three Test matches of the present England series at home, the veteran pacer uploaded a post that was enigmatic. Despite the fact that Mohammed Shami is still unable to play owing to injury, the selectors have chosen Akash Deep, a fast bowler who has not yet been capped, to join Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, and Mukesh Kumar in the lineup. Over the course of the two previous tests against England, India utilized two pacers in their lineup.

Siraj played in the first game of the series, which was played in Hyderabad, while Kumar took his place in the game that followed, which was played in Visakhapatnam. Bumrah was a consistent player throughout both matches. Yadav might have anticipated receiving a call-up for the forthcoming tests against England because the management of the Indian squad was planning to make some adjustments to the pace lineup.

When the 36-year-old player was not selected for the team of seventeen players, he took a sly dig at the selectors by posting a two-liner on Instagram Story. He did this in response to the fact that he was not selected. “Kitaabon par dhool jamne se, kahaaniyan khatm nahi hoti” is what Yadav wrote. (If there is dust on the book, it does not mean that the story is over) he said.

The last time the Vidarbha bowler played for India in a test match was in June of the previous year, when he participated in the World Test Championship (WTC) final competition against Australia. Regarding the number of wickets that Yadav has taken on Indian soil, no other fast bowler has been able to achieve the same level of success since 2018. During that time period, he has taken 43 wickets over 11 matches while playing. At an average of 25.88, Yadav has taken a total of 101 scalps throughout the course of his career, which he has accomplished in 32 home tests. In the Ranji Trophy this season, he has been in outstanding form, as evidenced by the fact that he has removed 19 wickets in just four matches.

Due to the fact that Bumrah has been performing well recently, it is anticipated that he will play in the next third test match against England, which is slated to start in Rajkot on February 15th. During the first match, he was responsible for six wickets, and then in the second test, he displayed an even more captivating performance. Over the course of the second test match, he took a total of nine wickets, including a six-wicket haul in England’s first innings. India won the match by 106 runs, bringing the series to a tie. This victory was made possible by his wicket-taking spree.
