Former Indian wicket-keeper and batsman Kiran More has revealed that Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Shami should be used by Indian team against Australia. He suggested that India should use them rotationally and give rest to another while another is playing in their place.
According to Kiran More, India should preserve their best bowlers for the Test matches even if it risks losing few white-ball players.
Kiran More told Times of India:
“The only thing I’m worried about is Bumrah. He is going to play one-dayers, T20, Test matches. I will look at resting Bumrah, and also Shami. Preserve more for Test cricket”.
“I will prefer to give rest to them in some of the matches, depending on the situation in the series, doesn’t matter if I lose also….Go with one guy in one T20 with two young fast bowlers, even (in) one day cricket. I will not go with both of them, need to rest one of them all the time. Play two matches, give rest, then play two matches”, He said.
Indian squad has flown with all their players for the upcoming tour starting from tomorrow. In 2018 series against Australia, Mohammed Shami was excluded from the T20I squad while Bumrah was rested for the ODIs.
