Former Australia pacer Bret Lee has praised Umesh Yadav for his performance in IPL 2022 saying he has been bowling with a wonderful control so far and got a great swing. Lee also added that Umesh is on fire, always gets wickets for Kolkata Knight Riders and a fifer is just around the corner for him.

IPL 2022 has started with 10 participant teams and more matches scheduled this season. The team is at the seventh position on the points table with three wins and four defeats. The team is experiencing a dip in their form but Umesh Yadav’s form has been the biggest positive for them. Umesh has been brilliant, especially in the power-play and has picked 10 wickets in the tournament so far. He is the leading wicket-taker for KKR. 

Former Australia pacer Bret Lee has praised Umesh for his terrific control with the ball. Lee also added that he will soon get a fifer with his ongoing form.

“This guy is evergreen. We've seen this in this IPL so far, he's bowling with some wonderful control. He's got a great swing, shapes the ball both ways, and is getting a little bit of nibble of the seam and he always gets the wicket for KKR,” Bret Lee said on a video posted on Bret Lee TV.

"2/20 vs CSK, the opening game of the IPL. He got guys like Gaikwad and Devon Conway. 15 dot balls, I always say if a bowler can bowl 12 dot balls or more, you're on song. He backed it up with 2/16 against RCB. Rawat and Virat Kohli caught behind, 14 dot balls once again and then 4/23 against Punjab, Mayank Agarwal, Livingstone, Harpreet Brar, Rahul Chahar, 13 dot balls another man of the match. Umesh Yadav is on fire and I reckon there is a fifer just around the corner.”

KKR will now lock horns against Gujarat Titans on Saturday.
