New Delhi, 1 April Veteran Indian fast bowler Umesh Yadav has said that the IPL franchise Delhi Capitals is like a home for him. Umesh started his IPL career with the Delhi team. Delhi Capitals bought Umesh at the base price of Rs 1 crore in the IPL auction held in February this year. Umesh has taken 119 wickets in 121 matches so far in the IPL. He expressed happiness on his return to the Delhi Capitals Camp.
33-year-old Umesh said, “I started my IPL career with the Delhi team, so the Delhi team is like home for me. I know many players in the team. Ishant Sharma, Akshar Patel and Rishabh I have also played with players like Pant, so I don’t think I am going to join a new team. I feel very comfortable joining Delhi Capitals Camp. “
