Video: Umesh Yadav sends Quinton de Kock packing in Ranchi
Indian fast bowler Umesh Yadav who was brought into the side as a replacement for injured Jasprit Bumrah has lived up to his reputation. He had to wait for an opportunity to get into the Indian team setup and when he was given the chance, he impressed everyone by taking crucial wickets in crunch situations of the game.
During the third game between India and South Africa, Umesh Yadav delivered a sumptuous delivery in what was enough for him to send Quinton de Kock packing at the best scene.
Umesh is pretty good at pitching good bouncers and he did bowl a brutal bouncer to de Kock who hardly had a go at it. The left-handed batsman was perplexed during the time when the ball was delivered and couldn’t really make a sharp decision at the right time. With no clue, de Kock had two options in mind.
He had to leave or duck it but he couldn’t do any of it properly as the ball went straight onto his gloves and went behind the stumps as Wriddhiman Saha took a good catch. Credit goes to Umesh for bowling a fantastic delivery.

India are in the safe zone now as they have scored 497/9 (declared) in the first innings. Thanks to Rohit Sharma’s maiden double century, Ajinkya Rahane’s century and a candid half-century by Ravindra Jadeja.
In reply, South Africa lost Dean Elgar and Quinton de Kock early on in the innings with Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav taking wickets. South Africa currently trail by 488 runs. They are in big trouble now and they still have a mountain to climb to pose a threat to India.
