One of the world’s greatest fast bowlers Jeff Thomson has given a new suggestion regarding Jasprit Bumrah of the Indian cricket team. He has suggested that Bumrah should avoid playing all three formats if he is to continue his game for long.
Perth. One of the world’s greatest fast bowlers, Jeff Thomson, says Jasprit Bumrah cannot afford to play all three formats for long if he is to extend his career. One of the best fast bowlers in the world in modern cricket, Bumrah is out of the T20 World Cup due to injury. He may have to be out for a long time due to a back injury.
Thomson, who was the storming pacer of his era, believes it is up to Bumrah to decide which of the three formats he wants to play. Thomson told PTI that Bumrah puts a lot of burden on his body because he plays in all formats and in that case he gets injured. Now it’s up to him to decide what he wants to do. He said that the crowd wants him to play in limited overs cricket. He comes to the stadium to watch him bowl in limited overs cricket. He has to bowl only 60 in ODIs and 24 balls in T20 depending on the format he plays.
Thomson said that in Test cricket he would have to bowl 15 overs in a day. You can well understand in which format you should play to extend your career. As the World Cup is held every year, limited overs cricket has become no less important.
Thomson said it is up to Bumrah to decide which format is right for him as any fast bowler is only at his peak for 10 years. He said that in a player’s career one can only bowl at his peak for a decade. That’s why it’s important to go beyond emotions to find what’s right for you. What is it so that your career progresses in a better way and what is it that you can serve your country for a long time.
So what does it mean for Bumrah to play in the limited overs format as he is more popular today. Thomson said it depends on what the audience wants and what they want. If people want him to bowl in limited overs cricket for India and if he can help India win the WC then why should he leave the limited overs format for other formats. He said that he will have to decide how he can serve India for a long time. This decision should be factual, not emotional.
