Umesh enjoying South African pitches

Bangalore, Oct 18: India and Delhi Daredevils fast bowler Umesh Yadav is relishing bowling on South African pitches in the ongoing Champions League Twenty20.

The right-arm fast bowler, speaking to Champions League website, clt20.com, has said it is every fast bowler's dream to bowl on South African and Australian tracks.

"I really like it here (South Africa). Every bowler likes these type of wickets that have some bounce in them. I have really enjoyed myself," Yadav told clt20.com.

Talking about the conditions in South Africa and his experience in CLT20, he explained: "It has been a good experience. I have played some good matches and series. And I have learnt from my experience in playing in Australia as well where there was bounce in the wickets and that is helping here too. The wickets here in South Africa are like that; they are green and have a bit of grass on them as well. So, there is a bit of help for the fast bowlers.

It is a fast bowler's dream to be able to play on wickets like these. I love to play on wickets like these. Since the CLT20 is happening in South Africa, I will definitely benefit from it. As a fast bowler I have got what I have wanted, so I will try and do my best."

When queried what are his strengths, he said "swing and bounce".

"My strengths are my swing and bounce. I work on both."
