India possesses an immense strength in its ranks for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament. A major reason for this is that the men in blue has covered the angle from where they were penetrated time and again in past – their pace battery.
Having a bowler of Jasprit Bumrah’s caliber surely sits as a dream for any team. Moreover, India has the luxury of the 25-year old being an extremely flexible bowler who can bowl equally well with new and the old ball.
Recently, India’s finest batsman till date, Sachin Tendulkar opined that India should look to use Bumrah only in pressure moments. Discouraging the pre-determined use of India’s yorkers specialist, the 46-year old added that Bumrah should only be used when we need wickets. The Mumbai born believes that using the adroit pacer in such a mechanism would increase his efficiency which eventually will aid India in doing well in the forthcoming mega-event.
“I think Bumrah will be our key bowler. I said this long time ago. Even before the team left for Australia, I rated him as a key factor. I would keep things flexible for him. I would possibly bring him when needed, for the crunch moments, rather than a fixed time,” added by master blaster as he addressed Bumrah’s usage in the 10-team tournament.
