A decade ago, Umesh Yadav wanted to become a constable. His father Tilak Yadav wanted his youngest son – Umesh Yadav – to get a government job. He even prepared for an examination for the post of constable in the police department but he couldn’t clear the exam missing the cut by a whisker. And now he is RBI Officer.
Now a decade later, he is recognized as one of the leading fast bowlers in the world cricket. However, once aspiring to become a constable has now got a much better job in the government sector.
Umesh has been appointed as an assistant manager in Reserve Bank of India (RBI), Nagpur office. The 29-year-old completed the joining formalities on Monday, just a day before he would be leaving to join his teammates for the forthcoming Sri Lankan tour.
The talks of his appointment were on before the Champions Trophy. He had met RBI officials before leaving for England in May. The officials gave a go ahead to his appointment in sports quota but due to national duties, he couldn’t complete formalities.
This 29- year-old cricketer always wanted to represent a reputed organization and now being associated with RBI, he definitely couldn’t have asked for more.
Though he is financially secured – as most of the current generation cricketers are, thanks to IPL – it’s always good to have a permanent job,” a source added.
