Ahmedabad, Nov 19: India's fast bowler Umesh Yadav, felt the wicket had become flat and there was no help for the bowlers, after India's nine-wicket win against England in the first Test match of the series at Ahmedabad.
Yadav also explained that the wicket was assisting spinners at the start of the match, while it became flat during the course of the match, as it helped batsmen a lot.
"The wicket had become very flat. It helped the spinners earlier on, but it became very easy to bat on later. There was no help for the bowlers. We had to put in a lot of effort to get something out of it," said the 25-year-old.
Yadav, who claimed Ian Bell (22), Samit Patel (0) and Stuart Broad (3) in the second innings, had also dismissed Samit Patel for 10 in the first innings to claim 4 wickets for 84 in the first Test.
After claiming Ian Bell and Samit Patel on Day Four, England were strugglinh at 199/5, as Yadav gave India another chance to go for a win.
Though he missed out on a five-wicket haul in the first Test, Yadav's patience and temperament is sure going to fetch him more rewards in the remaining matches of the series.
