Talking to Aaj Tak around one year ago, Shoaib Akhtar said, “His bowling is based on frontal action. Players with that action bowl with their backs and shoulder speed. We used to be side-on, and that used to compensate (for the pressure on the back). Front-on action has no compensation and with that action, when the back gives in, you can’t escape it irrespective of how much you try. I saw Ian Bishop struggling with his back, Shane Bond too.”

However, Jasprit Bumrah’s back injury can be vital for India. Meanwhile, BCCI has named Mohammed Siraj as the replacement for Bumrah but it will be an uphill task for Siraj to fill in the shoes of Jasprit Bumrah. Team India would hope that their bowlers will do well in the absence of Jasprit Bumrah.
