The Indian bowling department is ruled by Jasprit Bumrah including the likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammad Shami as well. The trio can easily match everyone in business and is nothing less than explosive for the team. India’s bowling squad has improved a lot since the last few months and the trio has aided in making the team register massive wins in the all the three formats in the overseas.
With the World Cup coming in less than 2 days in England and Wales, the team is one of the top contenders to lift the trophy and the pacers are one big reason for it. The same is reckoned by the commentator, Sanjay Manjrekar, who rated the prowess in every format. He considers Bumrah, much like the interests of the other people and give him 10 on 10.
Bumrah is street-smart and is calm under pressure
“You know he is a 360 degrees bowler as he has got all the tools in his box. He can bowl the Yorker, bouncer, he can bowl at 145 kmph and can get the new ball to move off the pitch. He also started bowling the out-swinger. He is street-smart and is calm under pressure. India is blessed to have a bowler like Bumrah,”
He further said that Bhuvneshwar Kumar hasn’t played any cricket in the last year owing to his injuries and has also failed to keep his performance in the bowling squad up to the mark. He said that Manjrekar needs some more practice and time to keep back on track. He further said that Kumar strains in the death overs.
We don’t quite see the best of Bhuvneshwar Kumar
He further said that he wants Hardik Pandya to be a part of the playing XI for the World Cup due to his amazing batting skills. “In 50-overs cricket, we don’t quite see the best of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. He has a great attitude and is someone who isn’t gifted. He has worked against all odds to make a contribution. He tends to strain at times in the death during 50-overs cricket due to his lack of pace and strength,” he added.
India is likely to drop Bhuvneshwar and get Hardik Pandya in because of the batting ability. He is a kind of bowler the world has seen a lot of,” says Manjrekar.
