There is an air of uncertainty over the participation of India speedster Umesh Yadav in Vidarbha's Ranji Trophy semi-final against Karnataka beginning. Busy doing rehab at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru, Yadav was conspicuous by his absence during the team's training session this morning. 

Vidarbha's think-tank is tight-lipped about Yadav's participation. 

"Please speak to the Board (on Yadav's availability). We are not allowed to speak as there has been a strict guideline from our association," said Vidarbha coach Chandrakant Pandit.

With a green top on offer at the Eden Gardens, unavailability of Yadav would be a big setback for Vidarbha who are eyeing their maiden Ranji title. 

Yadav has been named in Vidarbha's semifinal squad as the Indian board has encouraged SA-bound India players to represent their respective states. 

Wriddhiman Saha and Mohammed Shami are representing Bengal against Delhi in the other semifinal in Pune.
