Jasprit Bumrah Will Get Injured for Sure: Glenn McGrath

Australia's seasoned pacer Glenn McGrath has alerted BCCI to an impending injury and demanded that Jasprit Bumrah control his workload. The Indian attack has been led by the outstanding bowler in all forms. Speaking to the media at the MRF Pace Foundation, McGrath suggested that Bumrah take regular pauses because, considering the amount of work he puts into each delivery, he might lose it. Injury setbacks have plagued Bumrah's career lately. His back surgery kept him out of the 2022 T20 World Cup and the 2023 Indian Premier League.

Bumrah made a return in the T20I series against Ireland before featuring in the ODI World Cup, where he bagged 20 wickets.

“The last two strides that he takes, he just powers into the crease. Thus, his momentum increases, and that’s where he gets the pace,” McGrath said during an interaction with the media here at the MRF Pace Foundation.

“Someone like Bumrah needs an off-season because he puts so much into every ball. With so much extensive effort, he needs a break. If he keeps playing, the amount of pressure created given the bowling action he has, he is bound to get injured, which he has in the past,” McGrath added.

India hasn't found a truly dangerous left-arm fast bowler in recent times. While Arshdeep Singh has gotten a chance in some T20 Internationals, the Test and ODI teams rely heavily on the pace attack of Bumrah, Shami, and Siraj. According to McGrath, India's strong right-arm pace options haven't created a pressing need to find a left-arm bowler for their bowling attack.

"The Indian fast bowling has been set for a long time and hasn't had a big turnover. The way (Mohammed) Shami, Bumrah, (Mohammed) Siraj, and Umesh (Yadav) have delivered, only when they move older, we can think of having a change,” McGrath said.

"We have Avesh Khan and many others in the fray. We will see in the future. Having so many good right-arm bowlers is the reason why we haven't seen a left-arm Indian pacer lately," he added.

Glenn McGrath believes Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins, despite their high IPL price tags, won't feel burdened due to their experience.

“For Starc, he chose not to come to the IPL due to personal reasons. But he comes back and gets a record price,” McGrath said.

“He will be looking forward to it. On his day, if he is moving the ball around, he will be as good as any other fast bowler. The money that they have received is incredible. But they are both very experienced players and know the game well,” he added.
