Allan Mullally, one of England’s most skilled pacers, who stands at 6 feet 5 inches tall, currently resides in Perth and delivers a masterclass on swing bowling. Additionally, he expresses his opinions on Jasprit Bumrah, who has been struggling with a back injury for a considerable amount of time.
Mullally suggests that Jasprit Bumrah should reduce the stress on his body for now. The left-arm pacer also believes that India will likely be the favored team to win the current test series, but he would like to see Australia put up a good fight.
Jasprit Bumrah should put less pressure says Mullani
“Maybe he( Jasprit Bumrah) could lengthen his run up a little. He is putting too much pressure on the body at the moment. He needs to be at optimal speed when he is at the crease. Build up speed and get the job done. But if he jogs like he, does he is putting a lot of pressure on his body and that may be causing too many injuries,”
said Allan Mullally on the Backstage with Boria show.
India is a challenging tour for any team -Mullani
The Indian Test team under the leadership of Rohit Sharma will take on Australia in the second Test match of the four-match Border- Gavaskar series. Mullally said about the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy,
“India is always one of the most challenging tours. It is the ultimate Test in cricket. And that’s what makes it interesting. India are always the favourites at home against any team but you want to see a fight from Australia. Hope they put on a show for their fans for in the remaining Tests.”
Given that the ongoing Test series between India and Australia is taking place in India, the spinners are expected to play a crucial role. Sharing his tips to young bowlers handling pressure, Mullally said,
“You have to forget about the thousands of people. Forget about the media. Forget about everyone in the stadium. Just do what Shane Warne did. Take a little extra time. Toss the ball up a few more times. Calm things down. Plan in your mind what you need to bowl and just bowl that ball. Nothing else should matter at that point.”
India will look to double their lead in Delhi and try to inch closer to making it to the final of ICC WTC.
