On Wednesday, Graeme Swann, the former England Off-Spinner, referred Jasprit Bumrah, Indian Bowler, as one of those bowlers who have the ability to bowl out any side cheaply.
Swann attended the West Indies vs. India series as a commentator, which happened in September 2019. This is the time when he noticed the popular bowling trio- Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, and Mohammad Shami.
Swann said- “I thought it was incredible, and I said at the time, this Indian team right now would bowl out any team in the world cheaply with this bowling attack. The way they’re bowling right now, and I stand by that it’s incredible,” Source: Times of India.
Further, he added- “England were playing the Ashes, they wouldn’t have watched it. We were there, and that was an Indian team, an Indian bowling attack in unbelievable form. Jasprit Bumrah was in incredible form in that series.” Source: Times of India.
“I think England underestimated the West Indies, even subconsciously, and they picked the wrong team. England got their team selection wrong by dropping Stuart Broad. I will keep banging on about this. England blunted their whole bowling attack by not playing Stuart Broad,” Swann added. Source: Times of India.
Swann said that probably England did not see that series and prepared their pace attack. He also said that dropping Stuart Broad was a wrong decision.
He said- “I think he will forgive me for this, I’m not calling Stuart Broad a donkey, but remember, there is such a thing called donkey’s work in a Test match. A fast bowler who can bowl 25 overs a day on the sport, never bowl a bad ball, day in day out, same pace — that is Stuart Broad. He is the foil for James Anderson.” Source: Times of India.
