New Delhi: They may be one of the greatest fast bowlers of their generation, but Glenn McGrath and Jasprit Bumrah don’t look much alike. Their actions are very different. Bumrah’s action is very unconventional, but McGrath’s was one of his smoothest yet.
Bumrah, McGrath similarity
Meanwhile, Bumrah is fast paced and has top-notch accuracy, McGrath’s bowling accuracy is second to none. But what Bumrah and McGrath have in common is that they both became the captain’s favorite bowlers over time. Under Steve Waugh and Ricky Ponting, McGrath reached unprecedented heights and the world had never seen a faster bowler like him.
Likewise, under the guidance of MS Dhoni and then Virat Kohli, Bumrah has developed into one of the best players in the world, constantly challenging and defeating resistance with his unique flair.
McGrath advices to Bumrah
Former Australian fast bowler Glenn McGrath, who made the batsmen sweat with his bowling, has described himself as a fan of Jasprit Bumrah. However, he has also given some important advice for Bumrah. McGrath says that if Bumrah has to play for India for a long time, he will have to manage his body and workload. Because every year the cricket calendar is very busy. That’s why Bumrah should take a break in between and take his cricket forward.
Bumrah needs to be fit
The Australian veteran said, “Bumrah is India’s biggest strength in bowling. His bowling figures are unbelievable. I am a big fan of him seeing the way he takes wickets while bowling.”
“However, his bowling action puts a lot of pressure on him. That’s why they need the most to keep themselves fit and strong. McGrath said that if he does this, his career will go further,” McGrath said in Kerala.
Bumrah will try to get back the old rhythm
Actually, Jasprit Bumrah was suffering from injury for a long time. Due to which he had missed many big tournaments as well. But now Bumrah is returning for Ireland tour after being fit. Bumrah will be Rohit Sharma-led Men in Blue biggest strength in the upcoming World Cup 2023, that will be hosted by India.
