Former Indian skipper Sunil Gavaskar has recently opened up on India’s Test series against England. The Test series ended abruptly with the fifth Test in Manchester getting cancelled due to a COVID scare in the Indian camp. The Indian players were reluctant to play the final Test with the series ending at 2-1.

Meanwhile, Sunil Gavaskar while talking to Sony Sports said that Jasprit Bumrah is a clever cricketer of the Indian team and can be Virat Kohli’s go-to man and someone whom the captain can rely on.

“He is a very clever bowler. He is somebody who looks to get better than yesterday – be it his bowling or his batting. Look at the way he applied himself and hit those runs when India came to bat. And as a fielder too, he is looking to get better. So he is that kind of cricketer whom you can rely on. You throw the ball at him in crunch situations and he’d say ‘ok, I’ll do it for you’,” Gavaskar had said on the Sony Sports Network.

Bumrah reached a personal landmark in the Oval Test getting to 100 wickets. England lost four wickets in a space of six runs in a fantastic spell of bowling by The premier Indian pacer. He castled Ollie Pope and Jonny Bairstow with two beauties breaking the England middl-order open. He also got the old ball to reverse swing which was the highlight of his spell.

“You see him with the white-ball, see him in the white-ball format, how they do it in the IPL and even the 50-overs game, there are few masters. When it comes to the red ball, it becomes that much easier. The seam stays hard and intact longer, the shine on one side is a lot brighter than it is on the white ball, and therefore there is a lot more opportunity to generate reverse swing,” the former India batsman added.

Bumraj will be turning up for Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2021 UAE leg. He is a part of the India squad for the T20 World Cup and thus would like to get himself ready for the big event.
