While sharing his views on what Jasprit Bumrah should do to leave an impression in the Birmingham Test, Bangar said on Star Sports’ Game Plan: “The one challenge for him is that sometimes he tries too hard to bowl outswingers. However, he is a specialist inswing bowler. He should not forget his stock delivery. He needs to use his variations like variations. So he must concentrate a lot more on his stock ball and also bowling fuller lengths.”
SL VS IND: Jasprit Bumrah is likely to do well in the fifth Test
The veteran Indian pace bowler was a part of the four-day warm-up match at Leicester, which ended in a draw on Sunday where he looked in decent form, picking up only one wicket. However, he went wicketless in the World Test Championship (WTC) final against New Zealand but he bounced back brilliantly and performed well in the series against England as India won two of the four Tests as well.
While talking about the changes in the Indian pacer’s game between the WTC final and the England Tests, Bangar shared: “Before the four Tests in England, Bumrah also played in the World Test Championship final. In this Test match, which was basically the first one of the England tour last year, his length in Southampton was back by quite a bit,”
“Because of this, he did not taste any success. After that, we saw a change wherein he pushed his length forward and started having a lot of success. He ended up having a very good series,” he concluded.
However, Jasprit Bumrah was Team India’s leading wicket-taker during the four Tests in England, claiming 18 scalps which came at an average of 20.83 as well.
