Jasprit Bumrah, who returned from his injury in the 2nd T20I against Australia, would like to get back to his best as he was taken for plenty by the Australian batters on the flat Hyderabad surface. For the first time in his T20I career, Bumrah conceded more than 50 runs in his spell.

During a recent chat with Sports18, Saba Karim explained, “That is true, but at times we just tend to get carried away and want pacer bowlers to deliver in a very effective manner in all the T20 formats – it is not going to happen. The entire format is based so much on unpredictability. So, in one game you may have a very good outing, in the second game some of the batters may get after you.”

Saba Karim further added that Bumrah and Harshal Patel can come well at the right time for India.

Explaining the same, Saba Karim said, “What is more important is that a particular bowler is supposed to have faith in his skill and abilities. So, one can see that in Jasprit Bumrah. I can understand that he’s coming back after a long layoff and may take some time to settle down but let’s not get carried away, Jasprit Bumrah in all the games that he will play will be extremely effective so that may not happen.”
