Mumbai: Umesh Yadav was fast and fiery. He was one of the most genuine wicket-taker for India in all formats. While everyone knew him to be an aggressive player on the field, there’s another dimension to Umesh, which very few people know about.
Off the field, Umesh is a different personality altogether- romantic, loving, empathetic and caring to be precise. Yadav’s love story with spouse Tanya is short, cute, yet intriguing to say the least.
Tanya and Umesh met during an Indian Premier League match back in 2013. In the same year, the fast-bowler and his lady love got hitched.
She was in the Stadium to witness a game with a friend. Tanya’s companion was a common friend of both her and Umesh and it was through this friend that the lovebirds met. They became friends, which developed into profound love after which they decided to tie the knot.
After four years of their marriage, Tanya seems to be happy, as her relation with Umesh passed the test of times. In a recent interview, she revealed how Umesh proposed to her and how she instantly obliged to his proposal.
She also said that the Vidarbha fast-bowler is humble and down to earth. Even as she gets loud, the fast bowler treads a calm, collected and polite approach to every problem. It’s absolutely heartening to see the couple leading a happy life and both have set a perfect example of stitching together a steady relationship.
