The term “Bazball” doesn’t exactly resonate with me. However, I believe that as a bowler, it keeps me in the game,” Bumrah remarked.
Prominent Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah knows the harm that Bazball can do. In the rescheduled fifth Test match at Edgbaston against England on July 22, he suffered the consequences. England won the match by seven wickets after chasing 378 runs in the last innings. Bumrah was also captaining the team when Rohit Sharma was not available since he had firsthand knowledge of the havoc England’s aggressive style of cricket can cause.
“The term Bazball doesn’t really resonate with me.” However, they are demonstrating to the globe that there is another way to play Test cricket by playing successful cricket and adopting an aggressive style of taking on opponents. I believe that as a bowler, it keeps me in the game. And if they’re playing at full speed, they won’t wear me out, and I could get a ton of wickets. I’m constantly considering how I can make the most of things. Bravo to them, but you’re in the game as a bowler, Bumrah told The Guardian.
I come from a generation when Test cricket reigns supreme. Oh no!
Jasprit Bumrah emphasized that, despite the popularity of franchise cricket, he belongs to a generation that saw the rise of Test cricket. The pacer claimed that using the red ball helped him master the art of taking wickets and that this has greatly improved his game.
I come from a generation when Test cricket reigns supreme. That’s how I’ll always evaluate myself. Yes, the IPL gave me my start, but first-class cricket is where I learnt how to bowl and honed my craft of taking wickets. In Test cricket, it’s your responsibility as a bowler to get the batsman out, Bumrah said.
