Bangladesh Under 19s won by 9 wickets (DLS Method)
Jasprit Bumrah, the rising star in the cricket world, has been jolted with an injury which ruled him out of the home series against South Africa and Bangladesh. The bloke is currently suffering from a stress fracture at the lower back. With the early diagnosis, the recovery span is about two months. This injury has given rise to suspicions over his action, whether his un-orthodox action is pressurizing his body or not.
Ashish Nehra, the former Indian bowler, clarified things about Bumrah as he said that he does not need to change his action. “Stress fracture is unrelated to action and we must get our concepts clear. He doesn't need to change his action and if he tries to do that, it won't be great. Let me assure you when he comes back, he can bowl with the same action, intensity and pace”, Nehra said.
“His action is not that unconventional as it is made out to be. The alignment of his body at the time of delivery is perfect. The only aspect that is not copybook is his left hand (works like a pivot), which doesn't go up”, he further added. Bumrah’s dream of playing a Test match in India is further delayed, the 25-year old has played all his 12 Test matches outside home after making his debut against South Africa last year.
