He is on fire. A five-wicket haul is just around the corner': Brett Lee hails India's 'evergreen' pacer in IPL 2022

Impressed with his show, former Australia and Kolkata Knight Riders pacer Brett Lee called the Indian "evergreen"

and reckoned he will soon claim a fifer as the tournament proceeds.

KKR kicked-off the ongoing edition of the IPL securing a resounding six-wicket win against CSK in the season opener.

The team, however, has witnessed a dip and are languishing at the seventh position on the points table with three wins and four defeats.

But what has been remarkable about Kolkata is Umesh Yadav's redemption in white-ball cricket.

The 34-year-old picked 10 wickets so far in the campaign and currently leads the chart among KKR bowlers.

“This guy is evergreen. We've seen this in this IPL so far, he's bowling with some wonderful control.

He's got great swing, shapes the ball both ways and is getting a little bit of nibble of the seam and he always gets the wicket for KKR.”
