Of late, the Indian National Cricket Team is reaping rich results from the bowling department across the formats. One of the key contributors in that section is Jasprit Bumrah. With his weird action, he yielded results for India in a successful manner across the formats. Meanwhile, experts revealed that the action would affect Lumber Vertebrae of Bumrah.

The expert doctor quoted that the action of Jasprit Bumrah would make an impact on his Lumber Vertebrae, as he bowls from the front-on action. He feels it would be safe until he uses 45 degrees angle arm. But, the professor feels that the bowler would extend it more often than not.

If he exceeds 45 degrees he might suffer:

Further, he added that Jasprit Bumrah releases ball outside the line of the front foot, which would help him to get a beautiful inswinger. However, during the course, if, he extends 45 degrees, it would result in impacting lumber zone of the body.

“Bumrah tends to release the ball outside the line of the front foot. This means he can ‘push’ at the ball, usually resulting in an excellent in-swing delivery to a right-hand batter. However, if he exceeds 45 degrees of trunk lateral flexion (which I think he may on some occasions), then this element of his action may pose some injury concerns to his lumbar vertebrae,” said Feros as per the Indian Express.

Part of Deakin University’s sports team in Victoria, Australia, Feros and renowned physiotherapist John Gloster studied the Indian pacer’s bowling action at length. Ranked the third best sports science school in the world, Deakin University’s School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences is a leader in its field.

“In terms of pelvis and shoulder segment alignment in back foot contact, delivery stride, and back foot contact, Bumrah’s action looks safe; he doesn’t appear to place his spine under excessive torsional stress,” Feros said.

Previous coaches of Jasprit Bumrah should be lauded:

Another professional Gloster quoted that the body is an amazing machine, which can adapt anything. He believes that it would benefit the fast bowler, as he developed the action right from his childhood days.

“The body is an amazing machine and given time will adapt to most anything, including the capacity to repeatedly deliver a ball at high speeds and accuracy with this visually unusual bowling action,” he quoted.

Gloster also lauded the previous coaches of Jasprit Bumrah, who never tinkered with the action of Bumrah during his initial days. He feels that the success of Bumrah in the International Cricket should be given credit to his previous coaches.

“Given his current effectiveness in world cricket, I feel his earlier coaches should be applauded for not trying to change his action and ‘mould’ him into the ‘perfect action’ bowler,” he added.

Well, it would be interesting to see how things would pan out for Jasprit Bumrah. So far, he has been brilliant for the Indian team across the formats. Meanwhile, the Board of Control for Cricket in India is giving ample rest from the series to series for the fast bowler.
