Injury-hit Australia will find it more difficult to stop Bumrah than any other Indian player


Afghanistan's resounding win over Australia means it has become extremely important for Australia to win the match against India.

After the match between India and Australia, Afghanistan will play Bangladesh in the evening and will know the result. And if Australia loses, they just have to beat Bangladesh to reach the semi-finals. If India loses, Rashid will know by what margin his team has to beat Bangladesh to reach the semi-finals. Afghanistan will be upset by the loss to India, as it did not help their net run-rate. The way some of their batsmen lost their wickets shows that they lack the thinking and understanding about what needs to be done to make it to the semi-finals. Now they have a great opportunity to do so. The pitch in St Vincent is definitely helping the spinners and Bangladesh also has a lot of spinners, so playing against them will not be easy.

Australia know it won't be easy for India. After beating Afghanistan with ease, the Indians would definitely want Afghanistan to reach the knockout stage. They showed that they are not the ones to give up and beat Bangladesh with ease as well. Bangladesh might have made a mistake by opting to field first, as they needed a good start after India had set them a target of around 200 runs. How could they do that against a Jasprit Bumrah-led attack? The guy is a marvel, pure and simple. His run-up and action are something that is impossible to copy. Also, there is the invaluable ability to understand the batsman and read his mind and bowl accordingly, making the batsman look like a complete fool.

His humility can be seen from the fact that he tries to learn by watching new bowlers from other teams and tries to see if he can learn something from them and add something to his repertoire. Always behaves like a student and not a guru and hence keeps his eyes and ears open to learn as much as possible and get better at his skills. And this skill of course being able to land the ball exactly where he wants it is a skill that is rare and given to only a few.

India is lucky to have Bumrah. He should be celebrated with more enthusiasm than our brilliant batsmen. Look at how he and his bowlers saved the batsmen from embarrassment against Pakistan, which was defending a modest total.

Yes sir, Australia know that if they have to beat India and qualify for the semi-finals they will have to stop Bumrah more than any other Indian player.
