Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah has said that he prefers to bowl with the Duke’s ball made in England, because that ball helps him a lot. He gets both speed and swing from Duke’s ball compared to Kookaburra ball used in Australia and SG ball used in India.
Jasprit Bumrah spoke on a wide range of issues while speaking in the ICC podcast with West Indies veteran Ian Bishop and South African legend Sean Pollack.
Bumrah also told how he has learned to throw an out swinger (inswing for a left-handed batsman). Bumrah, who bowled brilliantly in the World Cup 2019, also explained how he can bowl at a brisk pace with just 8 steps run up.
Jasprit Bumrah has said, “I like to bowl with Duke. It rotates fast, so basically when you have a little bit of help, it helps, because it’s hard to blow fast.” Because the ground is small and the wicket is flat, so if the ball does something, it also becomes a competition.
Bumrah has also admitted that a two-time batsman does not understand your strange action bowling, but then he starts understanding. In such a situation, you need to change your bowling.
He has said, “So I had an outsider, but when I came to the international set-up, I didn’t believe it, maybe it wasn’t coming along well, the pace might be, you got gotta Feeling.
