Kevin Peterson’s View on Bumrah’s Excellence and England’s Failure

After a dramatic loss in the first Test in Hyderabad, India is aiming to level the series in Vishakapattanam. On the second day, Yashasvi Jaiswal shines with his maiden double-hundred and on the other hand, Jasprit Bumrah is standing with 5 important wickets.

However in the second innings of the first test in Hyderabad, England’s batsmen showcased their excellence but in the second Test, the scenario was totally different. Indian Pacer Jasprit Bumrah steps out on the ground with different plans and secures a five-wicket haul by dismissing Ollie Pope (23), Joe Root (5), Jonny Bairstow (25), Ben Stokes (47), and Tom Hartley (21).

Bumrah’s excellent dismissal of Joe Root took the Spotlight and also signifies a crucial wicket for India. He amazingly sets for him with an in-swinging delivery from a good length in the first ball and on the second delivery, the ball was moving away from the same area around the stamp. On the second attempt, Root defended the ball, and with an outside edge this easy catch was caught by Shubman Gill at first slip. 

Kevin Peterson’s Say:

Team India outstandingly displayed their bowling excellence on the second day. Joe Root got out on the crucial point of the match. According to former England Player Kevin Peterson, this was the turning point of the match. With that, he also praises Bumrah’s brilliant bowling. 

During the commentary, he said, “I don’t think he tried to do anything different. Jasprit Bumrah is a wonderful bowler and the way that he has taken the ball away and then gets the ball to come back in whenever he wants too, it is just a rare talent. Anderson has it and Bumrah has it too. I just think that Joe Root’s batting technique at the moment, his head is far too far over. It still looked to me in the replays that he is still in this position. When you are in that position, he is worried about the ball coming back. As a batter, anything outside your right eye, you can leave. You should be monitoring your right eye”.

Further, he also added, “ You play down the line because you don’t want to miss like how he did in Hyderabad. But he was fighting so much that on occasions that he left, his head was still on the off side. He should just be on the middle, off stump, particularly on the off stump”.
