IPL 2022: This player was not given any place in KKR's playing XI, now he has to pay a heavy price

In the first match of IPL 2022, Kolkata Knight Riders defeated Chennai Super Kings by 6 wickets. Umesh Yadav was selected as the Player of the Match for this match.



IPL 2022 has got off to a flying start. In the first match of the tournament, Kolkata Knight Riders made a big comeback by defeating Chennai Super Kings. Umesh Yadav, the 'underrated', was instrumental in Kolkata's victory. Before the start of the match, many veterans were not even giving Umesh Yadav a place in KKR's playing XI. But the bowler dismissed Rituraj Gaekwad in the very first over of the match, saying how difficult it could be to take him lightly. After all, he is not the only fast bowler to have won the Most Man of the Match awards on a big stage like the IPL.


In the first match of IPL 2022, Kolkata Knight Riders defeated Chennai Super Kings by 6 wickets. Umesh Yadav was selected as the Player of the Match for this match. This is the ninth time in the history of the IPL that a bowler has been declared Player of the Match. On his performance, Kolkata Knight Riders tweeted, "Yahh Jalva Hai Umeshbhai Ka."


AB de Villiers holds the record for most Man of the Match awards in the IPL. The South African star cricketer has won the award 25 times. Chris Gayle (22) and Rohit Sharma (18) are third on the list. As far as fast bowlers are concerned, only Shane Watson (16), Andre Russell (11) and Jacques Kallis (10) are above Umesh Yadav.


Everyone knows that Watson, Russell and Kallis have been legendary all-rounders and have often been voted Player of the Match because of their batting. In other words, when it comes to pure fast bowlers, Umesh Yadav has the highest player of the match title.


Jaspreet Bumrah, Ashish Nehra, Jaydev Unadkat and Lasith Malinga have won the 6-6 Man of the Match award. These four names come after Umesh Yadav in the list of expert fast bowlers who have won this award. From this it can be inferred that Umesh Yadav did not get the stardom to which he is entitled. But List of the Player itself tells its success story.
