Indian speedster Umesh Yadav scalped his maiden wicket in the County Championship for Middlesex against Worcestershire. He took the wicket of Taylor Cornall to start off his County stint.
Yadav has been in terrific form for a while now. It was an unplayable delivery from Yadav to get rid of Cornall. The batter looked clueless as the ball struck the stumps. Kolkata Knight Riders appreciated his efforts as they took to social media to congratulate him.
