In the lead-up to India’s semi-final clash against New Zealand, bowling coach Paras Mhambrey commends the formidable trio of Bumrah, Siraj, and Shami for their stellar performances in the ongoing ODI World Cup.
As the cricketing world eagerly awaits the semi-final showdown between India and New Zealand at the iconic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, the spotlight turns to India’s lethal pace attack, lauded by their bowling coach for their exceptional contributions to the team’s success.
Speaking about the trio, Mhambrey praises the standout performances of Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, and the emerging talent, Mohammed Siraj. Bumrah’s remarkable tally of 17 wickets, coupled with Shami and Siraj’s contributions of 16 and 12 wickets respectively, showcases the potency of India’s pace arsenal in the ongoing World Cup.
“Shami is someone who has the seam straight upright. You never know when Shami hits that seam, which way it’s going to come. Siraj has really kind of grown in the last couple of years. He’s understood his bowling, obviously coming through the ranks,” Mhambrey highlights, underlining Siraj’s growth and adaptability.
The bowling coach also showers accolades on Ravindra Jadeja, emphasizing his pivotal role in the spin department. Jadeja’s ability to take wickets at regular intervals, particularly during the powerplay, has been instrumental in India’s journey through the tournament.
“His ability is very simple. The ability to hit the deck, and hit the length spot on. Very accurate. Very miserly in terms of the way he goes about his bowling. Doesn’t give anything away to the batsman,” Mhambrey states, recognizing Jadeja’s precision and effectiveness.
With Bumrah leading the wicket charts and the collective effort of the pace trio, India’s bowling unit stands as a formidable force heading into the semi-finals. As the cricketing fervor intensifies, fans eagerly anticipate witnessing these skillful bowlers in action, poised to play a crucial role in India’s quest for World Cup glory.
