Umesh Yadav, the right-arm Royal Challengers Bangalore fast bowler, has stated that he has made a conscious decision to look back at his performance on the day and try to learn from to improve as a bowler.

Umesh has come good for RCB this season with his ability to swing the ball at high pace. Umesh got RCB off to a great start in defense of 167 by taking crucial early wickets. 

Speaking to Ashish Nehra in a chat after the match. Umesh was quoted saying that, “I can definitely improve myself because whenever you keep on performing in the middle, there is always a scope to do better. So I am trying to continue performing as I am doing and also learn from my mistakes and do better than before,”

“Whenever you are playing a must-win game and you come out to bowl in crucial situations when two batsmen are set, and you bowl a good over, you obviously you feel good. My focus was to bowl as per the team’s plans. I am trying to convert how I am practicing on the nets into the match and am also focusing on bowling as per the situation demands,” 

Umesh got the figures of 2 for 29 in his four overs. He further said, “Yeah, I feel that whenever my captain gives me the ball, they expect me to take the wicket. Even the coaching staff is training me to be a wicket-taker as one or two quick wickets, in the beginning, will build pressure on the opposition, which improves our chances in the match. So, I always try to take wickets with the new ball,”
