It wasn’t a start that India’s fast bowler Umesh Yadav would have thought of. India’s pacer slipped while been in his delivery stride. Yadav right-leg didn’t land properly and he could not deliver the ball. Thankfully, there was no injury concern for Umesh Yadav. In fact, Yadav could have twisted his ankle, which would have a big blow for India. However, Yadav got back to his feet, inspected where he slipped and got back to his bowling mark to bowl again.
