PTI, Mar, 27 2017

Kolkata: Former India captain Sourav Ganguly is impressed with the form exhibited by pacer Umesh Yadav in the ongoing Test series against Australia.

The pacer from Vidharbha has picked 17 wickets from four Tests, including the three he took in the final match in Dharamsala on Monday.

The Cricket Association of Bengal, where Ganguly is the president, also praised spinner Kuldeep Yadav on his impressive debut.

"Hopefully it's the beginning of something very good," said Ganguly to the reporters at the Eden Gardens.

According to Ganguly, "He is young. He will learn. Credit should go to (coach Anil) Kumble for giving him an opportunity. End of the day it's the bowlers who will pick 20 wickets for you to win Test matches."

Ganguly, who is the ambassador for Fifa U17 World Cup in India, is happy to see Kolkata getting the final of the marquee event.

"It's great to see the final being played in Kolkata," he quipped.
