Perth: Young India pacer Umesh Yadav, who took five wickets in an exceptional spell of sustained hostile bowling at the WACA on Saturday, conceded that the batting failure was not helping the visiting team's cause in the third Test against Australia here.
"The batsmen are not able to make runs. Put it to bad luck or anything. Each and every batsman is trying very hard but unfortunately, it's not happening," said Yadav who took his maiden five wicket haul in Australia's first innings.
Two moments of Yadav (5/93) stood out - first when he claimed the prized scalp of Ricky Ponting and second, the catch he took in the outfield to dismiss David Warner for 180.
