The fast bowler of the Indian team, Jasprit Bumrah, has been out of the field for a long time due to injury. Jasprit Bumrah was not part of the T20 World Cup squad apart from the 2022 Asia Cup due to injury. At the same time, it was believed that Jasprit Bumrah could play the last two test matches against Australia, but he was unable to recover from his injury. Now, former West Indies fast bowler Ian Bishop has given a big statement about Jasprit Bumrah.
Former West Indies fast bowler Ian Bishop said if Jasprit Bumrah wants to play for a long time then he should consider playing selected matches. He said that playing with Jasprit Bumrah will be very important for the Indian team in the ICC tournaments. If Jasprit Bumrah continues to play in all formats, the injury will have a huge impact on his career. Former West Indian fast bowler said that Jasprit Bumrah is an amazing bowler. At the same time, he said that the success of the Indian team will largely depend on how fit Jasprit Bumrah is.
Ian Bishop believes that bowlers like Jasprit Bumrah, Mitchell Starc and Jofra Archer are known for their pace. These pitchers don’t give a chance to overpower hitters with their pace. He cited the example of Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc. Ian Bishop said Australia give Starc frequent rest to ensure he is fit for big games. Likewise, he said that no bowler can play continuously in all formats.
