Umesh Yadav was allegedly cheated of 44 lakhs by his friend-turned-manager.

Indian cricketer Umesh Yadav has allegedly been defrauded of Rs 44 lakh by his friend-turned-manager Shailesh Thackeray on the pretext of buying a property in his name. Following the cricketer’s complaint, the Koradi police in Nagpur registered a case of criminal breach of trust and cheating against Thackeray.
