Truthful Tuesday | Why Jasprit Bumrah shouldn’t play Tests in India at all
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Even in full-blown wars, the ace is only unveiled in special scenarios. Scenarios which can't be unlocked with anything but the X-factor, the special weapon that holds the audacity to be a differentiator, a differentiator needed when the run-of-the-mill stuff can no longer work.Jasprit Bumrah is that precious jewel, the X-factor, the special weapon, the differentiator in Indian cricket. The skills, the temperament, the confidence, he is one of the best that Indian cricket have had in ages. He's arguably the best pacer across all formats in world cricket at the moment. Short run-up yet great momentum. A chutzpah-laden jump, whiplash action from hyperextension, raw pace, dipping slower balls, killer yorker, wide-angle of attack. An ability to move the ball both ways, with accuracy and control, the deceptive change of wrist. And above all, a sharp brain, to work out a batsman's technique, play with his head, and attack where it hurts the most. He's GOLD for India. A bowler, who should be wrapped up in cotton wool and preserved. There have been great batsmen in the country, but very rarely as good fast bowlers. And that is why there is a greater need for India to be more cautious with him than others. No other bowler in the country walks into the XI across different formats, different conditions, and different countries but Bumrah. But that also means he is likely to be exposed to far more cricket than he ideally should be. And that is precisely where India will need to be careful.Given the team's fast bowling resources for Tests in India, there is a strong case to not play the 27-year-old in home conditions at all. Even his selection for the ongoing Test series against England didn't make much sense given the amount of cricket he had already played. He entered the home series having played 15 matches in IPL, three ODIs, one warm-up game, four Tests since September 19. He sent down 159.4 overs in these many Tests. He was even ruled out of the Gabba Test, which might well have been triggered as a result of his workload. In the hot conditions of Chennai, he had to bowl the most in an innings he ever had. No wonder the Indian pacer was rested for the second Test. But his selection in the squad itself was hard to comprehend, at least for me, given India have to play a lengthy white-ball series later, then there is the IPL and the much more important England tour lined-up. Not to forget, in the World Cup year, it will be great to try different combinations with Bumrah in the side so as to build up the team ahead of the megaevent than in it like the 2019 WC.Let's take a look at how Indian pacers have fared in the last five years in India with a minimum of 10 wickets: Indian pacers at home in the last 5 years  © Cricinfo Statsguru India have quality pacers in Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, and now Mohammed Siraj, all of whom are good enough with reverse swing and the old ball. And given how much of a factor India's batting and in particular spin bowling assumes, there is hardly any need of Bumrah’s presence. Why expose him when India already have enough firepower for familiar home conditions? So, they shouldn't. Also, in all honesty, Bumrah in India doesn't make as massive a difference as he does in SENA, for him to toil hard on flat, unresponsive Indian surfaces or the ones that are tailor-made for spinners. However, in SENA conditions, he is invaluable given he leads the Indian bowling attack and turns into an X-factor, with his top-notch skills which are better than most others pacers as the below stats reflect. Indian pacers in SENA in the last 10 years  © Cricinfo Statsguru Bumrah has the best bowling average for any Indian pacer in SENA nations in the last decade. He is the third leading wicket-taker after having made his debut in 2018 in South Africa, which shows he is a class apart. The difference in his bowling average with others shows the gulf between him and everyone else and his significance.And when it comes to limited-overs cricket, he is unrivaled in the Indian team with his value arguably even greater than Virat Kohli given Rohit can make up for his failures but there's no other pacer who comes even close to the diversity of the skills that Bumrah possesses. There is no better death bowler in the world than him forget India, where there is dearth of such options. And unlike Tests, India lack quality bench strength or even as many options in the colorful jersey. So, his value in white-ball cricket goes unabated just like SENA. Bumrah is a generational talent. India are lucky to have a match-winner like him. Now, it's on the selectors, team management, and captain whether they use him in the best manner possible or leave a room for injury with the amount of workload there is for an Indian cricketer, who happens to be a fast bowler, a regular across formats, and an IPL star. He certainly can't be wrapped up in a cotton wool and be preserved but used as judiciously as possible. To ensure that his body doesn't break down due to excessive cricket and he continues winning games of cricket in years to come. Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

India require firepower in terms of finishers for T20 World Cup, opines VVS Laxman 
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Former Indian Test batsman VVS Laxman has asserted that India will need to add up strength in terms of finishers which is an area of concern for the T20 World Cup to be played later this year. He also added that Men in Blue's death bowling is also concerning and that they need to address it.Over the years, India have had their issues in terms of power hitters who can finish with a flourish at the end in white-ball cricket. After the retirement of wicketkeeper-batsman MS Dhoni, India have been left with only Hardik Pandya who can finish the innings in an able manner. Though Ravindra Jadeja did well in the finisher's role on the Australia tour, it's still early days for him and he needs to do it more often. While Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik are two other players, who have the ability to finish with a lot of firepower only if they get enough chances in the side.Former Indian batsman VVS Laxman has opined that finishers role is one of two areas that India need to fill as he doesn't see any able finisher apart from hard-hitting all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who had a great limited-overs series in Australia. “As far as the T20 World Cup is concerned, the balance of the squad is very very important. There are two areas where India really requires firepower. Number one is the finisher. We depend overly on Hardik Pandya. Apart from Hardik Pandya, I don’t see anyone else who can play that finisher’s role,” Laxman said on Star Sports' chat show Cricket Connected, reported HT. T Natarajan has emerged as a great option for death overs after he was able to nail yorkers in the 2020 IPL that helped him get a place for Australia where he did well. But he's highly inexperienced at the moment while regular injuries have kept Bhuvneshwar Kumar out of the Indian team.Laxman feels that India will need to address their death bowling woes heading into the T20 World Cup which will be held this year in India, later. “And in the bowling department, who along with Bumrah can bowl those death overs," Laxman asked."We have got options in Natarajan or Bhuvneshwar Kumar. But that is one area in the bowling department which Virat Kohli requires to address,” he added.Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

IND vs ENG | Good decision from team management to rest Jasprit Bumrah, reckons Gautam Gambhir 
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir has taken a liking to India's decision to rest pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah for the second Test that started today in Chennai. He also added that India would love to have Bumrah for the pink-ball Test and also the last game, so it was much needed. India have played a lot of cricket since the 2020 IPL. Fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has been in bio-bubble since August 2020 and only once he got a five-six day break in between after the Australia tour since then which is gruelling. Meanwhile, he has played the whole of IPL, three ODIs, one warm-up game, four Tests since that time which is quite a bit be it physically or mentally. In fact, in the last Test, he bowled the most he had in any Test innings in the first innings that too in Chennai's heat.Given, India will play a lengthy limited-overs series against England after the four-match Test series and then the IPL before the away England tour, it was very important to rest and rotate Bumrah, which India duly did today. They rested him from the side with Mohammed Siraj taking his place in the second Test after Virat Kohli stated at the toss that the pace spearhead has been rested keeping in mind his workload. Former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir, who had earlier asked for managing Bumrah well, was happy with India's decision to rest the fast bower and termed it a good one by team management. "I think it is a good decision to rest him. He will be ready to go in the pink ball Test match. There is nothing for the fast bowlers here and he has bowled a lot of overs in Australia and the first Test match, so I think it was a very good decision from the team management's point of view," Gambhir said on Star Sports' show Cricket Live, reported HT. The World Cup and IPL winner also suggested that India will need Bumrah for the pink-ball Test or the more crucial games coming forward. "You would want to have Jasprit Bumrah for the crucial Test matches, the pink ball one and the fourth Test and there will be hardly any gap between the two. So, I think it is the right decision." After the culmination of the ongoing four-match Test series, India will play five T20Is and three ODIs against the Three Lions. Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

IND vs ENG | Chepauk Day 2 Talking Points: India tasting their own medicine, Stokes fuels fire and Bumrah’s workload
By admin | | 0 Comments |


If day one of the first Test was poor for India, day two turned even poorer as England batsmen piled up misery on the tired Indian bowlers making them taste their own medicine. Ben Stokes and Joe Root put on a scintillating stand while Bumrah's fitness was tested as much as Kohli could.India tasting their own medicine Prepare flat tracks, which have no lateral movement or much spin in the first three days, bat first, score big and outplay opponents has been India's way of winning at home, a lot of times. But this Test things haven't gone as per India’s plans. England won the toss and batted as ruthlessly as India does. Generally, a pitch like Chepauk is akin to a graveyard for bowlers. Even in Australia, flat pitches were there but they at least have some bounce. So spinners and pacers can get something out of it as it brings more modes of dismissals to play but not on these dead tracks. England batted with a caution against the new ball, negating the first session with a lot of patience and grit on both the days. Today, it was challenging to bat early in the day but England didn't give in. Just like India take the weaker links in the spin department of other teams to cleaners, so did England. In the first 150 overs, 55 overs were bowled by inexperienced Nadeem and Sundar of whom, the Three Lions looted 223 runs. Interestingly, on the second day, we have seen invariable bounce. There have been deliveries from both Nadeem and Ashwin that have reared up after pitching which indicates how difficult batting last on this pitch can prove to be for India. It's a ploy that India have used quite successfully but now they will be at the receiving end of it as undoubtedly the first two days were gold for batting, not so as we move ahead in the game.  It was expected that India would regroup after day one and come back stronger with a new batsman at the crease in form of Ben Stokes with a set Joe Root. And India started off brilliantly as well. Bumrah was hitting perfect line and lengths, always threatening Root's pads while Ashwin was also able to beat Stokes' outside edge on a few occasions and was getting a hint of turn and also variable bounce. As per CricViz, in the morning session, at one time, England's false shot percentage was 12%, up from the 9% they registered yesterday. But England didn't arrive sans plans. Ben Stokes was the man who led a brilliant counter-attack to further dent India. He attacked his away out of challenges thrown at him. In the 95th over delivered by Ashwin, Stokes had announced that he won't let the offie bully the left-hander, which he usually does gives how the offie matchup works against southpaws. He had launched Ashwin for a straight six when he flighted the ball after getting some purchase. After that the sweep was out, he hit boundaries against Ishant off back-to-back deliveries and all the pressure created evaporated in a few overs. When it came to Nadeem-Sundar, Stokes blasted them like club bowlers. At one time, he was just dealing in slog-sweeps, reverse-sweeps, and also came down the track to hit a six. It was pure mayhem as he brought his fourth gear into play. His 124-run-partnership with Root ensured that India had nothing left in the tank by the time he got out and the visitors were easily posting in excess of 450. Jasprit Bumrah's inexplicable workload In a few months time, there will be an IPL, a Test series in England, and also a T20 World Cup later in the year. And one name that's going to be the most crucial is none other than Jasprit Bumrah. He's a rare jewel for India, who is phenomenally good across formats and spearheads India's bowling attack. Could India have done without Bumrah for this Test series? Surely, they have a plethora of bowlers who can fill in his place keeping in mind how much he matters this year with some significant assignments to come. Even if he had to play, there was a need for him to be used more judiciously. He's Jasprit Bumrah, and with him it is always worth risking. And mind you, he had sent down 117.4 overs in three Tests in Australia, had played the ODI series and also the IPL before that. No wonder he was injured, hence ruled out of the Gabba Test.He bowled 29 of the first 150 overs in the heat of Chennai. He will need to send down a lot of overs in the second innings as well. And if he plays two Tests at this graveyard-esque flat pitch where longer spells are needed, he might end up being injured with a major cause of concern for India in the upcoming months. Not to forget, only last year the pacer had returned after his first major long injury lay-off and it’s surely a time when India show more caution despite the temptation of his world-class abilities.Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

IND vs ENG | Think we bowled well in patches but conceded runs in the last session, accepts Jasprit Bumrah
By admin | | 0 Comments |


After what was a long day in the field, Jasprit Bumrah has accepted that the home side conceded a lot of runs in the last session but stressed that they bowled well in patches. Bumrah also suggested that India couldn’t do a lot on the surface, which was flat with the saliva ban in play.It was a tough day for the hosts against a visiting England side, who had just completed a 2-0 series whitewash over Sri Lanka. With the curator suggesting that the pitch would sport an English look, all eyes were on the two Indian pacers, Ishant Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah to make the fullest use of the conditions.However, as it turned out, there wasn’t much support to the pacers, who struggled to get any sort of purchase from the pitch. But despite that, Indian bowlers had moments in the day where they were so close to dismissing the English batsmen, at the right time. While at times, the catches didn’t carry, at the other times, the English batsmen got lucky with an edge. Following the end of day one’s play, where the Three Lions finished on 263/3, Jasprit Bumrah accepted that the Indians conceded a lot of runs in the last session. However, at the same time, Bumrah also stated that India bowled really well in patches, and were unlucky. “I think we bowled really well in patches, apart from the last session, we bowled really well. We gave away too many runs in the last session. Hopefully, we will bowl the same and create as many chances tomorrow as well,” said Bumrah in the post-day press conference. “Look over here, the ball did become soft after a while and with the wicket on the flatter side, we had to do with very fewer options. We can’t use the saliva as well to maintain the ball, it was tough for us during that time,” he added.Another sight that was on offer on the first day of the Chennai Test was the Indian fielders, who according to Rishabh Pant were down and out. Bumrah threw light on the same, stating that they were okay in the first two sessions but became a bit dull during the last session of play. “I think we were okay (morale) till the second session. At the beginning of the last session, we felt a bit flat. Especially when the wickets aren’t favouring you, we were a bit dull.”“In hindsight, we can talk well about it (the decision to play Shahbaz over Kuldeep) but this is the team we went with, we will continue to back them. Right now, there is a job to be done and later on, after the game, we can discuss the selection.”The pacer concluded stating that, not just Joe Root, every wicket will be equally important for them and that would be their main focus on the second day of the first Test. “Every wicket is equally important, for us, all wicket is equally important. But our main focus is to pick the remaining seven wickets. So we give equal respect to all batsmen and all of them are dangerous.”Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

VIDEO | Bumrah hits the bullseye in to leave a well-set Sibley shell-shocked 
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Jasprit Bumrah, the yorker king, showed his full class today on day one of the India-England Test as he got rid of English opener Dom Sibley in closing moments of the day with an impeccable yorker. This was the second wicket of the day for Bumrah who was playing his first home Test.Jasprit Bumrah is a champion bowler. Today, he was confronted with a great challenge as he was welcomed for his first home Test with a flat road in Chennai. It was an arduous challenge for Bumrah but being a hard worker and top-notch bowler that he is, he found a way. He ended up as India's best bowler taking two wickets in a day which saw only three wickets falling down and a complete dominance by England batsmen led by Joe Root. Dom Sibley was batting phenomenally well. After a long day, he was looking to see off the final over of the day which was delivered by Bumrah. But on the third ball of the over, Bumrah did his magic. The right-hander wasn't expecting a yorker, I mean one expects fuller deliveries with the brand new cherry, not a yorker. And it's not just about the delivery. The Indian pacer absolutely nailed the yorker too showing impeccable accuracy and lot of venom with the delivery. The ball crashed into the front pad on the full of Sibley. In a desperate move, the opener who was batting on 87 and was hopeful of a well deserved century, decided to review the decision. But it was three reds as the ball was crashing into the leg stump much to the dismay of the batsman and delight of Bumrah and the Indian team. Watch the video here:Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .

IND vs ENG | I’m not someone who needs crowd noise for motivation, states Jasprit Bumrah
By admin | | 0 Comments |


Jasprit Bumrah, who on his home debut today picked two crucial wickets to keep India in the contest, asserted that he does not rely on crowd noise for energy and stated that he needs no bigger motivation than representing the country. Bumrah toiled hard to finish with figures of 2/40.After 17 Tests of playing on bowler-friendly wickets, Jasprit Bumrah encountered a flat wicket on his home debut in Chennai today, but the right-armer toiled hard and got his rewards. First, on the stroke of lunch, Bumrah trapped Dan Lawrence plumb in front with a booming reverse-swinger then, in the last over of the day, he produced an encore to dismiss a well-set Dom Sibley. Bumrah had, incidentally, played each of his first 17 Tests in front of spectators, and the first Test today at the Chepauk was his first-ever red-ball game behind closed doors. However, speaking in the press conference post the day’s play, the 27-year-old asserted that he is not someone who is affected positively or negatively by the crowd. Bumrah stressed that he does not need crowd cheers to push himself to go the extra mile and asserted that there is no bigger motivation than representing the country in the longest format.“For me, I don’t need extra noise or something to push myself. It depends on individual to individual,” Bumrah said in a virtual press conference on Friday.“I actually keep telling myself if I don’t bowl well, how can I pick wickets. There isn’t a bigger motivation than playing for India, this is the best format and my favourite too. I accept all kind of results having done my best. I keep getting better and taking advice from others in order to improve myself.”It was a day where not just Bumrah, but the entire Indian side had to toil hard. After picking the wicket of Dan Lawrence in the 26th over, the hosts went 64 overs without a wicket, before Bumrah finally struck three balls before stumps. The speedster acknowledged that the ball got scuffed up due to the wicket’s flat nature but insisted that India will look to utilize their resources efficiently to punch holes in England’s batting.“This is my first match in Chennai, there wasn't a lot of lateral movement. The ball got relatively scuffed up early because of the flat pitch. We aren’t complaining about the pitch but aiming to make full use of the resources and bowl well in the coming days.”Wickets like these are, of course, by no means alien conditions for Bumrah, who played close to 25 first-class games in similar conditions across the country prior to making his Test debut. Having already picked two vital wickets, the right-armer expressed satisfaction over his performance but attested that on Day 2, he will be focused on bowling England out as cheaply as possible.“For me, I have played in India but first Test in India, I have played a lot of cricket in India. It’s not completely alien but that being said done, I was happy with my efforts on such conditions. My main focus is what I can do for the team tomorrow and help the team dismiss England quickly.”Follow us on Facebook hereStay connected with us on Twitter hereLike and share our Instagram page here .
