People with more experience than you always have the right to give advice. It’s been a few days since the IPL started and now one by one veteran and wealthy players are coming forward to tell which team should play which player.
Former cricketer Ravi Shastri has recently given valuable advice to the Mumbai Indians. Expressing his opinion about this team, Ravi Shastri said that the team should take good advantage of pace bowlers in the team.
In IPL 2022, the team is equipped with the best bowler like Jaspreet Bumrah. But he is not happy with him after the defeat with Kolkata Night Riders.
Shastri questioned the handling of Jasprit Bumrah under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma. A complete match gets slipped from his hands due to misusing his talent of Bumrah. MI lost to KKR by 5 wickets. JaspritBumrah is playing from MI and could bowl only three overs against Kolkata Knight Riders as Pat Cummins smashed 56 off 15 deliveries and helped the team to chase down 162 in 16 overs in IPL 2022 on Wednesday in Pune.
The star bowler Pat Cummins of KKR has won everyone’s heart with historic batting He scored a half-century in just 14 balls in this match. Apart from this, he has now become the joint-fastest fifty-scorer in the IPL. During this, he scored 35 runs in an over of Daniel Sams of his own country. Now Ravi Shastri has also become an admirer of his innings and has praised him.
Talking about the defeat against Mumbai, Mr. Shastri said that it will be very difficult for Mumbai to digest. In a conversation with Star Sports, Ravi Shastri said that
“I just feel the use of Bumrah has to be better. Sometimes you’re just not getting the best out of him because you don’t have depth in your bowling. So instead of going for the kill and looking for wickets, you’re just keeping Bumrah for one or two players or keeping him for the death.”
Further, he explained,
“At that time it doesn’t matter if you’re Bumrah or anyone, you’ll go for runs. If the batsman is in that kind of mood and the momentum is with the batting side at that stage, you will go for runs.”
“So you would rather use him to get wickets at important periods rather than keeping all those overs at the back, waiting for ‘if Russell comes, I’ll use Bumrah’. But then, if it’s too late, there’s no Russell, someone else did the job.”
Ravi Shastri got surprised to see the game which gets ended in just one over. Regarding this, he said that the match was not so easy, and it became bitter and bitter. He said,
“It’s like someone giving you a chocolate and before you can finish saying ‘thank you, it’s in the other guy’s mouth.”
Well, the words coming from such a highly experienced persona are always valuable and his people are trying to connect and got convinced by his opinion and advice. In the end, it all depends on the day when the game starts and ends on the ground.
It’s a third win in the series for KKR. After winning this match, the team KKR has reached number 1 in the points table. Apart from this, Mumbai is still waiting for its first win. MI lost their three matches in a row. In such a situation, it will be interesting to see how Mumbai makes a comeback. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for MI.
