Yadav is the best bet, says Nehra

Veteran left-arm seamer Ashish Nehra praised his Delhi Daredevils team-mate Umesh Yadav terming him as the “most talented fast bowler” in the country at the moment and believes that his performance will have an impact on India’s performance in the near future.

“Umesh has done so well and if you ask me personally, he is the most talented bowler for India. If he does well, then it will augur well for India as they will play some important Test matches in the coming months,” Nehra told reporters ahead of Daredevils’ IPL match against Chennai Super Kings.

As an elder statesman of the side, Nehra said that he loves helping out youngsters like Umesh and Siddharth Kaul.

“We have people like Umesh and Siddarth and I look to help them as much as I can. But in this format, the gap between matches is too little and with the amount of travelling, it even becomes difficult for them,’’ he added.

There is no denying that Daredevils have had one of the worst seasons but Nehra believes that they still need to fight it out and “look towards winning the remaining three games.’’
