ICC news: Akram advised to steal Bumrah’s boots!


ICC CWC 2023: Jasprit Bumrah is number one among the pacers in the list of highest wicket takers in the current World Cup. He took 14 wickets in 6 matches. At the top of the list is Adam Zampa, the Australian spinner with 16 wickets.

Bumrah is currently the joint second highest wicket taker in the World Cup. New Zealand spinner Mitchell Santner also has 14 wickets. It is natural that spinners will find success in Asian countries including India. But in the meantime, Bumrah has become unstoppable.

England could not overcome the shock given by Bumrah yesterday by picking up two wickets in two consecutive balls in Lucknow. The world champions were knocked out of the World Cup due to batting failure. Jasprit Bumrah bowled a total of 53.5 overs in this World Cup, of which Maiden took 14 wickets for 211 runs. Average 15.07, Economy 3.91.

Be it the new ball, or the death over, or even the middle over, whenever Rohit handed the ball to Bumrah to break the partnership, the fear of the batsmen increased. 2 for 35 runs in Australia match, 4 for 39 runs against Afghanistan, 2 for 19 runs against Pakistan, 2 for 41 runs in Bangladesh match, 1 wicket for 45 runs against New Zealand.

Bumrah spent 32 runs and took three wickets in yesterday’s match. “It was challenging for us to bat first,” he told Sky Sports. At one point the pressure built up with the loss of a few wickets in quick succession. But still, the way everyone has matched themselves feels good about this win.

While explaining the secret of success, Bumrah said that the first goal of the new ball is to get the swing. If there is no swing, the plan is to throw the ball at a hard length to make the batsmen’s job difficult. The end from which I started bowling in the England match was not getting much swing. That’s why I emphasize sim bowling.

Stating that Mohammed Shami is bowling flawlessly, Bumrah said, Shami is one of the legends. Stay calm in the field. The way he was bowling it looked like he was bowling in a Test match. Which was nice to see. We have bowled together many times in Tests. Enjoying bowling with him. The way Shami is playing feels good for him too.

Bumrah is satisfied with his performance after recovering from back injury. He said, my wife is in the sports-media department. I heard a lot about my career. I think I will not be able to return to the field and so on. But I don’t care about them. I am back, realizing more and more how much I love playing cricket. Not chasing any target.

Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram is currently ranking Jasprit Bumrah ahead of the rest of the pacers in the world. “Bumrah has more control than me because he is new,” he told a Pakistani newspaper. His ball has pace, swing, variety. Sim is cheating the batters in the position.

Akram said, Bumrah is bowling flawlessly by mixing inswing and outswing. The seam position is such that the batters cannot understand which ball will come in and which one will go out. There is only one weapon to stop Bumrah. It happened to steal his shoes. So that he can not ball!
