Legendary Australian fast bowler Glenn McGrath said that Jasprit Bumrah, India’s best fast bowler, could benefit from his long break due to injury. This break might give Bumrah a chance to rest and come back stronger for the 2023 ICC World Cup.
Bumrah needed almost a year to heal from a fracture in his lower back. His most recent game for India was in September 2022 against Australia in a T20I match in Hyderabad.
But now, the 29-year-old is going to be the captain of the Indian cricket team in a three-game series against Ireland later this month.
It’s uncertain because it’s based on the severity of the injury and what he wants to achieve. I believe he will be okay because he is a good bowler,” McGrath said during an interview at the MRF Pace Foundation academy.
“The layoff will benefit him, I believe. ” Fast bowlers require a break and some time to regain their physical strength. It all relies on the effort he has put into activities outside of playing, the condition of his back, and if he has made any changes to his technique. I believe he has been to that place before and he has successfully accomplished it,” McGrath said.
The person from New South Wales, who has taken 949 wickets in international cricket, said that they will closely observe Bumrah when he starts playing at the highest level again.
“I haven’t watched him bowl. ” Well, we’ll have to wait and see what happens in the future. He is the only one who knows his current location. So, I will be watching him closely to see him return to his previous position.
He works really hard and it makes him tired. “He said that if he has worked hard enough on the field, he doesn’t see why he can’t go back to where he was before. ”
McGrath said that Bumrah should be able to keep up the same strength and speed when he comes back, because of his experience and skill.
“He has plenty of experience. ” He has plenty of games before the World Cup to see how well he is doing. Eleven months is a long time to be away from the game, but if you have had a break and want to start playing again, hopefully, it will only take a few games for you to get back into it.
India’s death bowling has not been very good recently in limited-overs matches, but McGrath said that every team has this same problem.
“It’s not only India’s issue, but also a concern for every team. ” It’s the place where you either succeed or fail in contests. I’m not aware of the specific numbers, but India’s death bowling is a crucial aspect of the game. You need good bowlers who can bowl different types of deliveries and know when to use them.
In the past, when I used to play, there was a time when we didn’t have any games or competitions. Taking a break for two or 11 months doesn’t really matter much. “He said that it’s just about getting back into the rhythm. ”
But, McGrath said India has a great group of fast bowlers who are led by Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, and Mohammad Siraj.
“They have been doing a really good job for a long period of time. ” Shami understands how to play his game. He can move the ball in different directions and has a good speed. Regarding Bumrah, it’s clear that he has a very impressive record. Siraj has done very well since he arrived. “I think they are a really good bowling attack, one of the best in the world. ”
