Bumrah needs to be rested in LOIs vs weaker teams. Who are the potential replacements according to you ?
express bowling posted a topic in Cricket TalkBumrah is a rare gem. A thinking fast bowler with genuine pace, bounce, accuracy, stamina, seam movement and other skills. He knows which balls to bowl when and thinks about the playing conditions and batsmen's weaknesses. And has shown the promise to run through sides in tests. We need to preserve him and see to it that he is not overworked. For this, he needs rest against the weaker teams in bilateral LOI series. Many knowledgeable ICFers have been saying the same. I am in favour of playing him in most tests. Test match stats and success is what makes cricketers great. It would unfair to him to prevent him from getting wickets against the weaker teams. Bhuvi needs rest too as he is carrying a back stress and plays all 3 formats. He is priceless to us in T20Is and overseas tests. His ODI performances are subpar and I am in favour of resting him in this format. We need 2 new LOI pacers. Umesh is too inconsistent, Shami too unfit to play 2 formats, Kaul and Unadkat are subpar trundlers. My picks are ... Khaleel, Siraj, Prasidh and Rajpoot for ODIs Khaleel, Chahar, Prasidh for T20Is. Who are your picks ?
