Former Indian team opener Gautam Gambhir has said that fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah keeps constant pressure on the batsmen. He said, “The length he bowls and the pressure he puts on the batsman is amazing.” Gambhir said that it does not matter whether Bumrah is bowling with the new ball or with the old ball.
Gambhir said that when Bumrah started his career, he used to take the ball out for the right-handed batsman. And now we bring the ball in with the same length, this has made them more dangerous.
India has to play in the T20 World Cup this year and in addition to playing a lot of cricket in other formats as well. In such a situation, how to manage Bumrah’s workload is also a big question. Gambhir also spoke on Bumrah’s workload in the Star Sports program Cricket Connected. He said, ‘Look, he has not played any Test match in India yet. So I think the Indian team management handled Bumrah very well. He has given Bumrah a chance in countries like South Africa, England and Australia where he becomes more dangerous. ‘
Gambhir said, ‘I am not saying that he is not dangerous in India. He can be more dangerous in India, where wickets can be slow and down. In addition, the ball is also reverse swing. But you also have to take care of them as they will be the spearhead of your bowling attack for a long time. In such a situation, it is very important to remain fit.
