India vs Bangladesh Live: Ajay Jadeja And Ajit Agarkar Explode For Not Giving This Player His Due Credit. On Sunday, December 18, at Chattogram’s Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, India defeated Bangladesh by 188 runs in the opening Test of the two-game series. Bangladesh’s response to India’s mammoth 513-run goal was knocked out for 324. Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel each grabbed three wickets in the second innings. R Ashwin, Umesh Yadav, and Mohammed Siraj each claimed one wicket.
For Bangladesh in the second innings of the first test in Chattogram, Umesh Yadav took 1/27 in 15 overs. He broke the 124-run first-wicket partnership between Najmul Hossain Shanto and Zakir Hasan. On his debut, Zakir scored a century, scoring 100 runs off 224 balls while hitting 13 fours and a six. With the second new ball, Umesh looked dangerous and posed a serious threat to Mushfiqur Rahim.
Umesh Yadav Is Unfairly Criticized At Times – Ajit Agarkar
Former Indian pacer Ajit Agarkar said that the Vidharbha quick should be happy with his performance in Asian circumstances, where the grounds are more conducive to spinners and do not help pacers much. Among Indian pacers who have taken at least 100 wickets in Asia, Umesh Yadav has the highest strike rate.

“Umesh Yadav is unfairly criticized at times. His pace has not gone down much even after so many years. It shows he is extremely underrated, he does the job for his captain quietly. Those numbers are very impressive,” Agarkar told Sony Sports.
“He should feel extremely proud because the conditions are very difficult in the subcontinent or Asia for fast bowlers. It is good that he takes wickets quickly because the ball does not remain in your hand for too long when you play in Asia. The spinners are always ready to take the ball because the conditions are more favorable for spin,” he added.

The 35-year-old collected 111 wickets in 37 Test matches he played in Asia, all at an outstanding 49.4 strike rate. Only three pacers with at least 100 Asian-specific wickets—Waqar Younis, Shoaib Akhtar, and Imran Khan—have a higher strike rate than Umesh.
Umesh Yadav Has Been Outstanding Throughout His Career – Ajay Jadeja
Ajay Jadeja, a former Indian batsman, praised Umesh Yadav in the same conversation and emphasized his extraordinary accomplishment. Jadeja also gave the right-arm seamer high marks after his Saturday outing.
“There is no doubt that Umesh Yadav has been outstanding throughout his career. He would be a rare fast bowler, who has had such a long career for India but has played most of his matches in the subcontinent,” Jadeja said.
“He has got very few opportunities when there is seam and swing when everyone else is playing. He was outstanding today. He showed everything you expect from an experienced bowler – discipline and control,” he added.
