J P Yadav career

JP Yadav’s initial experience with international cricket consisted of just two games. He was one of many players India tried out during their search for an all-rounder for their one-day team.

Even though he was drafted in because of his ability to lash the ball around and bowl a few overs of right-arm medium-pace, he didn’t look like he belonged in the one-day internationals played against West Indies.

However, he is a valuable contributor to Railways, and his opening position is where he has scored the most of his runs.

 It was a missed opportunity for him to be among the contenders for a spot in India’s World Cup squad, but he staked another claim with a fantastic all-around performance in the 2004-05 domestic season.

During that season, he topped the list of wicket-takers and was a talismanic figure for both Railways and Central Zone, who both won their respective tournaments.

Railways won the Ranji title, and Central Zone won the Duleep Trophy. Yadav’s career with Railways was cut short when he joined the unlicensed ICL in 2007, but he severed all relations with the league in the following years, and the BCCI awarded him amnesty in June of 2009.

At the MA Chidambaram Stadium on November 22, 2005, the final one-day international was played against South Africa.

It is still unclear what the reason was for his not receiving a Test cap. It’s possible that the selectors were unimpressed by his bowling at a moderate tempo.

Or, likely, he didn’t rack up enough high scores throughout his career to earn a spot as a batting all-rounder.

In his second One-Day International, played against New Zealand in 2005-06, he first bowled a tidy spell and finished with 1 for 46.

Then, Shane Bond scythed through the Indian top-order, reducing them to 44 for 8; however, Yadav (69) and Irfan Pathan (50) added 118 runs, which was only eight runs short of the existing world record.

In addition, for some reason, he was only given 5.3 overs every match, despite averaging less than five runs per over.

And even if we disregard his score of 69, he only got to bat once when India was neither batting first and setting a goal nor chasing and had almost caught up to what they needed to do.
