Former India player RP Singh believes that speedster Jasprit Bumrah could face challenges in ODI cricket if he isn’t operating at his peak physical condition. Bumrah is a member of the Indian team for the ongoing Asia Cup and the upcoming World Cup on home soil.

Despite featuring in India’s Asia Cup opener against Pakistan, he didn’t have the opportunity to bowl due to rain, and he missed the win against Nepal as he had returned home for the birth of his first child. During the AakashVani show on JioCinema, RP Singh was questioned about his level of concern regarding Bumrah’s requirement to deliver 10 overs per innings or if he simply feels content with the seamer’s return. In response, he expressed: 

“Bumrah was certainly the spearhead of our bowling lineup thus far. He was out because of injury. It is good news for India that he is back. However, we will have to now see with what rhythm he bowls, what is his fitness percentage.”

The former Indian pacer added: “I feel it will be good if his fitness level is 70 to 90%. However, it can be difficult if his fitness level is slightly less. Bumrah was away for a long time. So I feel he will be fully fit and it is good news for the Indian fans and the Indian team that Jasprit Bumrah, the leader of your bowling attack, is coming back.”

In his return from injury, Bumrah took two wickets in each of the two T20Is against Ireland. He was even honoured as the Player of the Match in the first game for his impressive performance, which included taking two wickets in his very first over back on the field.

Jasprit Bumrah boasts an outstanding performance history in ODI cricket. Abhishek Nayar believes that opposing teams are already cautious about Jasprit Bumrah. He mentioned:

“Bumrah being Bumrah and having Bumrah in the side, I think for any opposition, somewhere or the other they would have started thinking because you know how much ability Bumrah has.”

The former Indian all-rounder wrapped up by emphasizing that Jasprit Bumrah’s unique combination of speed and versatility to bowl at any phase of an ODI match renders him a formidable asset. He elaborated further:

“You know what Bumrah brings to the table. You get a bowler who can bowl with the new ball, in the middle overs and especially at the death, which he is known for, for his yorkers. So having someone who can bowl at that sort of pace in that attack is absolutely lethal. So having Bumrah back is amazing.”

Bumrah has an impressive ODI record with 121 wickets in 72 innings at an economy rate of 4.63. However, he hasn’t played a 50-over game since July last year and needs to be in top shape for the upcoming matches.
