India’s premier fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has lost his mojo with the ball in the ongoing tour of New Zealand. The paceman’s performance was far from pleasing as he went wicketless for the first time in the bilateral ODI series. It was then questions have been raised over Bumrah’s poor bowling performance.

Team India is currently playing New Zealand in the Test series and the first match has been done and dusted with hosts decimating the visitors by ten wickets in Wellington.

Rightly so, New Zealand took a 1-0 lead in the two-match Test series. The second Test will be played at Hagley Oval, Christchurch on February 29, Saturday.

Bumrah, who played his first Test in Wellington after recovering from a back injury previously this year, bowled a handful of overs in New Zealand’s first innings where he finally managed to pick a wicket while his teammates Ishant and Ravichandran Ashwin registered 5/68 and 3/99 respectively.

The former India and Mumbai Indians‘ (MI) coach John Wright spoke about Bumrah since his return to the national side from an injury. Wright, who led India to a historic Test and ODI triumph in Pakistan in 2004 during his coaching stint backed Bumrah, to come back stronger in the second Test.

“He’s coming back after an injury. He’s finding his feet and rhythm again. It can happen to most players. After the highs, there is a plateau,” Wright added.

 

Earlier, Bumrah credited his success at the international arena to Wright. The former India coach highlighted that Jasprit Bumrah is ‘intelligent’ and is pretty sure that Bumrah would find a way out and come out on top.

“Teams must have seen endless videos of him. Once you become the lynchpin of an attack, the opposition teams really put you under the scanner and look for methods to cope with you best. Sometimes, they just play you off, not give wickets to you. Bumrah is an intelligent person, and I am sure he will find a way out. He has to fight his way through such periods,” John Wright concluded.
