According to Axar, Bumrah thrives on a clear strategy and the freedom to execute it. “He has an idea of what to do and what not to do,” stated Axar Patel.

This autonomy, coupled with Bumrah’s impressive track record, means the bowling coach, Paras Mhambrey, avoids micromanaging him.

“As much as I have seen, the bowling coach doesn’t interfere much,” revealed Axar. Mhambrey seems to prioritize creating a space where Bumrah can confidently implement his game plan.

Axar further praised Bumrah, labeling him as a “world-class bowler” and acknowledging his vital role in turning the tide of matches. “You know that with the quality of bowlers we have on our side – we can get out of a tough situation,” said Axar Patel. Bumrah’s presence undoubtedly bolsters the entire bowling unit, fostering a sense of security and confidence.

Variation in pace has been a cornerstone of Bumrah’s bowling strategy at the World Cup. He demonstrates remarkable adaptability, adjusting his speed to outsmart the batsmen. On the slower Barbados pitch, Bumrah utilized this tactic skillfully, bamboozling the Afghan batsmen with slower deliveries.

Bumrah’s bowling isn’t just about taking wickets. He’s also demonstrated exceptional control, a crucial aspect in T20 cricket. Axar even highlighted Bumrah’s remarkable streak of conceding less than seven runs in a spell for eight consecutive T20 World Cup matches, including the Afghanistan encounter.

With eight wickets in just four matches at an impressive average of 6.50, Bumrah has been a force to be reckoned with. The Indian team will certainly rely on his continued brilliance as they face Bangladesh in their next Super Eight match on June 22nd.
