Former Indian team pacer Ashish Nehra believes that we must reduce the over-reliance on Jasprit Bumrah. Team India needs to work on other options in fast bowling.
During the ODI series against New Zealand, Jasprit Bumrah could not take a single wicket in three matches, due to which he is getting a lot of criticism.
Ashish Nehra said, “You cannot expect a good performance from Jasprit Bumrah in every series. Everyone has to keep in mind that he has returned to the team after injury. It is not possible for everyone to show their best form at all times. Even with Virat Kohli, this has happened in many series. "
Ashish Nehra said, "It is not a crime to bowl length balls in death overs. Getting yorkers continuously is also not so easy. If you have speed, then you can play with the length by changing it. "
“Team management will have to manage its fast battery well. Apart from Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami, other bowlers should also know his role. Bumrah is being pressured too much. There is a clear lack of consistency during team selection.
Advocating to give Navdeep Saini a chance in the test, Ashish Nehra said, "Mohammed Shami is our best Test bowler at present. It is not much dependent on the condition and pitch. Navdeep Saini will benefit more from preparing Umesh Yadav for the test for us. He has a good rapport with the team. Saini is mostly dependent on back of length delivery. If he starts bowling a little full length with this speed, then he will get more chances to take a wicket behind the stamp. "
