Team India’s bowling coach Paras Mhambrey said that the return of Jasprit Bumrah has strengthened their pace attack, and it is pleasing to have four fully fit fast bowlers ahead of the World Cup 2023. Bumrah returned to the Indian team after a lengthy injury layoff during the recent tour to Ireland and in the ongoing Asia Cup as well. However, India’s preferred pace attack is now – Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, and Hardik Pandya, which forced the management to bench Mohammed Shami as well.

“We have been following Bumrah’s progress from the NCA, and we are very happy with the report that we have got. Now, we have four quality bowlers, and it is always great to have those options. The problem of plenty is always good,” Paras Mhambrey said ahead of India’s final Super 4 match against Bangladesh on Friday. “It’s not very easy to drop someone like Shami. The experience that he has and the performance that he has done for the country is phenomenal. It’s never easy to have that kind of a conversation (dropping a player).”

Paras Mhambrey also stated that, while it was a difficult decision, the player in question had been informed team’s decision clearly as well.

“But we are clear in the way we have gone about the conversation with the players and they have shown confidence in us. Players know any decision that we take and they know that it is for the benefit of the team,” concluded Paras Mhambrey. “I am very happy with the way Hardik has shaped up, something that we have worked on for a long time. We have been managing his workload, making sure that he is fit and able to achieve what we expect out of him. Once he hits 140 kmph he is a different bowler. From the team perspective it’s a wicket-taking option that we have.”
