Curtly Ambrose is a “fan” of Jasprit

Curtly Ambrose, a fast bowling legend, views Jasprit Bumrah in high regard. Despite the Indian spearhead’s history of stress fractures, Ambrose believes that Bumrah’s unconventional action should remain unchanged, stating that all fast bowlers face the danger of injury when they come onto the field.

“What I can tell you something about Jasprit Bumrah, I’m a big fan — ever since I saw him for the first time,” said Ambrose in an interview with PTI.”He’s so unconventional but highly effective, and that’s what I like about him. When you look at traditional fast bowlers, you wouldn’t look at Bumrah, he’s so unorthodox.”

“He has done a great job for India and still doing a great job in all formats. I met him a couple of years ago when India played in Antigua. He’s someone I’ve always enjoyed watching because he’s so different,” said Ambrose

Talking about how there are different set of challenges that every bowler has to face, Curtly emphasized that he does not believe that 2 bowlers could ever be the same.

“From my little experience, there are no two bowlers who are exactly alike. Bowlers may have similarities but they are never exactly alike and we all have our different styles everyone is different.”

“In terms of his longevity, in terms of injuries, (for) every fast bowler, there is always risk of being injured. But at the same time you can’t go out there thinking that way”

“You’ve got to go out there and do the job to the best of your ability and whatever happens, happens. The only way he should change is if he, may be, sustains a serious injury or has to re-model his action or something,” said the legendary pacer, who featured in 98 Tests for the West Indies and took 405 wickets.

The legendary bowler also warned cricketers of the burnout, as they are busy with back to back matches for the whole year.
