Thieves broke into the house of Indian cricketer Umesh Yadav and decamped with Rs 45,000 in cash and two mobile phones from the pacer’s house on Monday. The incident took place between 7 pm to 9 pm when the Yadav family was not in the house, police said.

“Our control room received a call around 3.30 am today informing about the burglary,” police said.
According to the police, the thieves entered the Yadav’s house by breaking one of the windows.
Yadav had an impressive run in India’s successful domestic season. He had claimed 17 wickets against Australia — highest by an Indian pacer in four-match Test series.
