Former cricketer Ajay Jadeja, playing for India, said that Bhuvneshwar Kumar did not miss Jasprit Bumrah in the recent three-match ODI series played against England. He played his role in Bumrah’s absence in the best manner. Bhuvneshwar Kumar made a spectacular comeback after injury and led India’s pace attack against the world number one team. He also bowled impressively in the Death Overs at the inception of the innings. Jasprit Bumrah took leave for personal reasons.
In a Cricbuzz show, Ajay Jadeja said that Bhuvneshwar Kumar played the role of Jaspreet Bumrah for India. Bhuvneshwar Kumar went ahead and took on the responsibility of a leader. Apart from bowling with the new ball, the role played by Jasprit Bumrah in the team is also fulfilled by Bhuvneshwar. When wickets were not available, you used to bowl them. At the same time, in the Death Overs, he was given the responsibility when the team came under pressure. Bhuvneshwar Kumar performed his responsibility in an excellent manner.Jadeja further said that these roles are two-edged swords. Because when batsmen like Sam Karan were scoring runs against some other bowlers, but they were defending against Bhuvneshwar Kumar. These things may not appear in the figures but they bowled tremendously. He further said that bowlers like Bhuvneshnar use their brains effectively and that is why they need to take care of their bodies so that they can continue to help the team with their skills. He said that fast bowlers are always full of aggression, but Bhuvneshwar Kumar also has brains. He uses not only aggression but also his mind while bowling. This experience makes them the best.
