Bumrah Deliveries

The retired England seamer Stuart Broad revealed his aversion to facing Jasprit Bumrah during his playing days, emphasizing the challenges posed by the Indian pacer.

In a retrospective analysis, retired England seamer Stuart Broad revealed his aversion to facing Jasprit Bumrah during his playing days, emphasizing the challenging nature of encounters with the Indian right-arm speedster. Broad, noting Joe Root’s recurring struggles against Bumrah, opined that the difficulty extends to every Test batter facing him.

Bumrah’s exceptional performance on Day 2 of the 2nd Test in Vishakhapatnam, where he claimed six wickets, including dismissing Root for the eighth time, showcased his prowess.

Broad, in his column for The Daily Mail, delved into Bumrah’s unique release point, drawing parallels with Sri Lanka’s Lasith Malinga, highlighting the distinct challenge posed by Bumrah’s deliveries for batsmen on the Test scene.

“If someone as good as Joe Root is habitually struggling with a particular bowler, you can bet your bottom dollar that every batter on the Test scene will be. Facing him isn’t like facing anyone else in the world and I used to hate it. Sri Lanka’s Lasith Malinga, with his slingy round-arm release, had that point of difference about him and Bumrah has something similar in that his deliveries are incredibly hard to pick up,” Broad wrote.

“What makes him so dangerous when reverse-swing comes into play is that he doesn’t tend to get the ball hooping – and therefore needing to start it on an exaggerated line to have an effect – but moving a very subtle amount to keep batters guessing,” he added.

Bumrah’s remarkable spell in England’s 1st innings significantly altered the game dynamics, causing England to lose quick wickets after reaching 110-1 in response to India’s 396. His sixth wicket, dismissing James Anderson, provided India with a 143-run lead.

Despite England maintaining a series lead, India now has a strong chance to level the series in Vizag.
