Wicket has become very flat: Yadav
Following England's fightback, Indian speedster Umesh Yadav felt that the hosts will have to put in a huge effort on the final day to get dismiss the opponents quickly as the strip at Sardar Patel Stadium has become a flat one
“The wicket has become very flat. It helped the spinners earlier on, but it has now become very easy to bat on. There is no help for the bowlers. We have to put in a lot of effort to get something out of it,” said Yadav, who bagged the wickets Ian Bell and Samit Patel — both leg-before decisions — to leave England in tatters at 199-5 at that stage.
“It would need a lot of patience tomorrow and a lot of effort to get those five wickets,” Yadav added.
On being reminded that he is the fastest bowler from either side, the pacer appreciated the compliment, but said that he must move on.
