Former Indian off-spinner and commentator, Harbhajan Singh, was impressed by the way veteran Indian pacer Umesh Yadav made a comeback with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the IPL 2022.

The 34-year-old pacer had a remarkable IPL 2022, where he picked up 16 wickets and provided early breakthroughs for KKR. He was really tough to play on the powerplay for the batter in the IPL 15.

Having been impressed by Umesh’s performance with the ball in the IPL 2022, Harbhajan said that the out-of-favor Indian bowler’s performance in the recently concluded IPL 2022 reminded him of his old days when he would bowl with both pace and swing.

Harbhajan Singh said on SportsKeeda: “Umesh Yadav has made a splendid comeback. Some players really benefit from being in the right team and with Umesh, it’s like he enjoyed playing for KKR. This team gave him that confidence. This was the Umesh Yadav we knew of. He was swinging the ball at 145 kph just like the old days.”

The former off-spinner was also impressed with the current crop of Indian fast bowlers, the likes of Prasidh Krishna, Mohsin Khan, and Umran Malik, who made headlines with their performances in the IPL 2022.

He signed off by saying, “I am very impressed with the crop of Indian fast bowlers that are coming up through the ranks. Talk of Umran, Prasidh, Mohsin and so many more. They are all so good. Earlier, it was never like this. We used to have a stock of spinners and now there are so many fast bowlers which is a great thing, something we never witnessed before. In the past, we saw Australia, England, and Pakistan produce so many fast bowlers and now it’s India’s turn.”
