Indian pacer Umesh Yadav landed himself a new job before heading towards Sri Lanka to engage himself in full fledged series. The 29-year-old has been roped in as the Assistant manager at the Reserve Bank of India, Nagpur branch on Monday.

Bagging a government job is a huge benefit for the Vidarbha bowler and he wasted no time in finishing his formalities before boarding the flight to the Island nation along with the Indian team. He applied for the job and had met the RBI officials before the recently concluded Champions Trophy in order to get the job under sports quota.

According to an official, the bank gave a thumbs up to his application but the player could not finish all the formalities because of his scheduled journey to Sri Lanka.

“The talks were on before the Champions Trophy. He had met RBI officials before leaving for England in May. The officials gave a go ahead to his appointment in sports quota, but due to national duties he couldn’t complete formalities.” said the official.

Umesh Yadav’s father Tilak Yadav is more than happy on hearing his son’s success in grabbing a government job. It has been Tilak’s long time wish that his son will work as a government employee. Umesh Yadav also applied for the post of police constable a decade ago to fulfil his father’s wish but missed it by a whisker.

Recent form:

Umesh Yadav has been India’s most consistent bowler in recent times. The bowler had a significantly bright time in the 13 match home Test term which ended before the Champions Trophy. He carried his brilliant form to the Champions Trophy and was the best bowler for the team along with Bhuvneshwar Kumar. The bowler was unfortunate to be dropped for an out of form Ravichandran Ashwin, and the decision proved costly for Virat Kohli and his men. Yadav also rose up to the occasion in the lethargic tracks of the West Indies and ended the series on a high.
