On a day when Umesh Yadav landed a job with the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) as assistant manager, the right-arm Indian pace bowler also had to deal with some bad news.

Umesh’s house in Nagpur was burgled on Tuesday, and according to reports, the thief or thieves took cash amounting to R45,000 as well as mobile phones. The number of mobile phones that have been stolen is not yet known.

Umesh was appointed assistant manager in RBI on Tuesday, and he will be posted in his hometown Nagpur.

He had completed his formalities of joining the RBI on Monday, and according to the Times of India, Umesh was also set to leave for Sri Lanka with the India team the next day, i.e. Tuesday.

“He couldn’t have asked for a better organisation than RBI. 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 was quoted as saying.
