AHMEDABAD, Dec 4 (PTI): Inspired by Australian fast bowling legend Glenn McGrath, the newest addition to the Indian pace attack, Umesh Yadav, wants to be a line and length specialist.

�I like Glenn McGrath personally. In my life I would try that I get as close as possible to his bowling,� Yadav told reporters here today ahead of India�s third ODI against the West Indies at the Sardar Patel Gujarat Stadium in Motera tomorrow.

�McGrath is my hero and I am inspired by him and trying to bowl like him,� said the Vidarbha bowler, who has struck a good combination with another up and coming bowler Varun Aaron.

Yadav and Aaron were India�s unlikely rescuers with the bat in the first ODI at Cuttack and guided the team home with a 12-run stand for the last wicket amidst mounting tension while chasing a modest 211.

Talking about that exciting one-wicket victory, Yadav said there was nothing much going through his head when he and Aaron were at the crease for the last wicket.

�We are tailenders and after the ninth wicket we thought what to do next. I was cool and wanted to play correct shots. Just single and double would be enough. Same was the case with Aaron,� he said.

Yadav had been impressive in the preceding Test series against the Caribbean islanders too and has taken that form into the limited over series with five wickets in two matches.
