Ishant said- I do not think anyone should doubt Bumrah's ability, his performance in the last two years has been fantastic.
Earlier Mohammad Shami had said that it is easy to sit outside and remove the flaws, because some people get money for it.
Dainik BhaskarFeb 22, 2020, 08:34 PM IST Sports Desk. After Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma has also come out in support of fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah. Ishant said after the end of the second day of the Wellington Test, "I laugh that some people are questioning the ability of Jasprit Bumrah to ignore the performance of the last two years."
Ishant, defending Bumrah, said that it is surprising that after an innings, public opinion changes. We have always taken 20 wickets in the last two years. I, Bumrah, Shami, Jadeja and Ashwin are doing it. How can people ask questions based on a Test innings? I don't think anyone should doubt Bumrah's ability. From his debut which he (Bumrah) has achieved for the country, I do not think anyone should raise questions.
Shami had said that instead of criticizing, one should adopt positive attitude
Earlier Mohammed Shami also supported Bumrah. He had asked those who criticized this fast bowler, how can you forget that he has won the country many matches due to poor performance in some ODIs. How can you ignore that Bumrah is making a comeback after recovering from a stress fracture. As a player, it is very difficult. It is easy to remove any flaws while sitting outside. Because, some people get money for this. Every player can be injured. In this case, instead of criticizing him, we should take a positive attitude.
Bumrah did not get a wicket on the second day of the Wellington Test
While Ishant took 3 wickets in the first innings of the Wellington Test, Bumrah did not get any success. He bowled 18.1 overs, but did not get any wickets. Bumrah also did not do well in the 3-match ODI series against New Zealand. He bowled 30 overs in 3 matches. But, he could not get a single wicket. Since then, questions are being raised on him.
