New Delhi: Team India is going to face England in the first match of the 5-match Test series from today. Usually the Indian team announces its playing 11 a day before the match, but this time it did not happen. In the final of the World Test Championship, the performance of the team’s fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah was poor. After which questions are being raised on him continuously.
Questions raised on Bumrah again
Another veteran has given a big statement on Jasprit Bumrah. Former England spin bowler Monty Panesar has said about Bumrah that Shardul Thakur would be a better option than him. Let us tell you that Shardul played an important role in winning the series against Australia. He showed amazing with both bat and ball.
On the Behind the Stumps YouTube show, Panesar said, ‘I think Bumrah should move the ball in the air a little more. I don’t think his natural length is over the stumps. His natural length is to bowl the ball fast. I believe that Shardul will be a better option for India. He can also bat with bowling.
Bumrah was disappointed
The team had high hopes from Jasprit Bumrah in the final of the World Test Championship (WTC). But he could not live up to it and he did not take a single wicket in both the innings of the match. In such a situation, there was talk of getting him out of the team. Team captain Virat Kohli has also made it clear that Shardul is an important part of the team and he can be given a place in the team against England.
