I still have to improve 15-20 percent to be a complete fast bowler: Umesh Yadav

By Saurabh Malhotra -

Umesh Yadav says he is happy with the improvement in his bowling in 2016, but he is still 15/20 percent off from where he wants to be. Umesh has been a consistent member of Team India this year, and has been injury free. He has clocked speeds of close to 150 kmph on a regular basis which is a tribute to his ability to bowl fast.

Speaking about his performance in 2016, “It was an interesting year. I played a lot Test matches and I was also part of the ODIs. All things taken into account, I think it was a great year for me," Umesh told Crictracker

However, Umesh isn't satisfied and wants to improve further, "Success may have come only recently but I managed to achieve the control even in 2015. Having been exposed to different match situations, I have learnt from my mistakes. The maturity was there in 2015 also. My effort has been to coordinate my pace with line and length and it is all coming together. But I am not 100 per cent yet. I am only 80 per cent. I still have to improve 15-20 percent to be a complete fast bowler," he concluded.
