Former Australian pace bowler Brett Lee, who is currently playing for the World Giants franchise in the Legends League Cricket (LLC) Masters, stated that Indian pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah has to make some changes in his bowling routine, suggesting that he should extend his bowling run-up to get the required pace and power out of his action as well.
However, Bumrah recently underwent back surgery in New Zealand and now he is in the race against time to be fit for the ODI World Cup as well, to be played in October-November at home this year as well. He is expected to stay in New Zealand till the end of March and may resume his bowling only in August as well.

“Bumrah has got a wonderful record. Unfortunately for him, he has had that back issue for quite some time now. The only advice I would say is that with his run-up being so short, he has to find that pace and power out of his action where I think, maybe now in due course, he might extend his run-up to allow that pressure to be taken off his back,” Brett Lee said in a press conference.

“Any wicket that you get at an age of 46 is always special. I have worked pretty hard leading into this mega tournament. I have done some training and bowling in the nets. I am ready to go and I am excited about it. The LLC is a wonderful tournament. We all are here to have fun and showcase the great game of cricket to our fans around the world. I would like to thank everyone who has brought this league together. I never thought something like this would be possible. It’s great fun,” Brett Lee concluded.
