Umesh Yadav’s fielding is a benchmark for speedsters: R Sridhar

New Delhi, Oct 18 :  Umesh Yadav took a blinder of a catch to dismiss Corey Anderson in the first ODI against New Zealand and fielding coach R Sridhar feels that the Vidarbha fast bowler has “created new benchmark” for the speedsters. “It’s good to have fast bowlers in the side who are good athletes. Umesh has a very good arm and similarly Shami is also a good athlete. In the past we had Mohit who was a very good fielder. Umesh is an exception not only because of yards he put in the field but also because of his catching. “That’s probably given him the edge and created new benchmark as far as fast bowler fielders are concerned,” Sridhar said during media interaction today. Asked about who has the most powerful arm from the deep in this current set-up, Sridhar named Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja. “Jaddu and Virat are the names that come to mind. They have powerful rocket arms and can throw from anywhere with accuracy. In terms of strength and fitness, all fast bowlers like Umesh have powerful arms. In January during Australia series, Umesh effected a run out from 80 metres. As far as one action pick up throw is concerned, it is performed at particular fielding position,” Sridhar said.
