India needs to manage Jasprit Bumrah carefully to keep it at its peak, suggests Brad Hogg

Former Australian spinner Brad Hogg has praised Jasprit Bumrah for sporting prodigious form in England at present. However, at the same time, Hogg added that Team India’s medical staff must be “top notch” to keep Bumrah at his best in all three international formats.

Since becoming India’s 36th Test captain in India’s postponed fifth Test match against England at Edgbaston just over two weeks ago, Jasprit Bumrah had decent form with the ball in hand. There in Edgbaston, despite heartbreak, Bumrah impressed with the ball and carried the momentum into the limited run. In fact, in the first ODI at The Oval he recorded his best ODI numbers returning 6-19, although he was not at his best in the second game at Lord’s.

Speaking to Hindustan Times at a Tourism Western Australia event, the former Australian spinner Brad Hogg praised Bumrah to continue his good work in England. However, Hogg thinks Bumrah, who is considered by many to be the best all-format fast bowler in the world right now, needs to be careful about his workload and fitness.

“He (Bumrah) is definitely up there. But with all the fast bowlers in the world, I think they have to be managed carefully because they are your biggest asset on any team. Yes, you have your batsmen and spinners (but) the workload for spinners is not as hard as fast bowlers,” Hogg told on the sidelines of a Tourism Western Australia event.

“If you want Bumrah to be at his peak for Test cricket and the T20 World Cup and other tournaments, your medical staff must be top notch. When you criticize teams and see that Bumrah isn’t doing so well, it’s probably a time when his training loads have eased.

With the decisive game of the ODI series against England to be played on July 17, Bumrah will be keen to find his rhythm to go to victory.
