One of them is the well built paceman from Vidarbha, Umesh Yadav. Yadav's blistering pace has made him stand out among Indian pacers over the past fear years. Umesh though wasn't included in the playing xi for the first Test against South Africa, but that hasn't stopped him from attracting the attention of the opposition.
South African speedster Dale Steyn, who himself has a variety of tattoos engraved on his body, was seen checking out Umesh Yadav's tattoos before the start of play on the second day of the Test.
Steyn is making a comeback to international cricket after a lengthy spell on the sidelines due to a shoulder injury. He made a great start in the Cape Town Test as he sent back Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan, who was looking to attack the Protea pacers.
Umesh Yadav though might have to wait for his chance a little longer as the three Indian pacers put in an impressive performance on the first day of the Test.
