Legendary Indian skipper Kapil Dev believes Jasprit Bumrah's unorthodox bowling action has a tendency to attract nagging injuries. Bumrah is rated as one of the best pacers in world cricket currently and his unparalleled ability to dart in searing yorkers is comparable to none.
The premier right-arm paceman is currently undergoing rehabilitation for a stress fracture, which has ruled him out of the cricket action for a prolonged period. Kapil has opined the reason behind Bumrah's frequent bouts of injury is due to his unconventional action that takes a toll on his body.
"If your bowling action is technically sound you make a bigger impact. See what happened to (Jasprit) Bumrah, his action attracts injuries. He uses his arm more than body, so that can be a problem. A bowler like Bhuvneshwar (Kumar) will last longer because he uses his body,” Kapil stated.
