Jasprit Bumrah’s situational awareness is unmatched and his five-wicket haul in the second innings of the opening Test against the West Indies is one of the “best spells of fast bowling” by an Indian, feels the team’s bowling coach Bharath Arun. Bumrah, who was given a month’s break after the World Cup, looked rusty in the first innings in Antigua but came back to claim five 5 for 7 in 8 overs as India thrashed West Indies by 318 runs in the opening World Test Championship match.“Bumrah is a thinking bowler.
He is aware of situations and adjusts himself beautifully. If you see the lengths that he bowled in the second innings, he pitched the ball up and was getting appreciable movements,” Arun told reporters. “That’s the best spell of fast bowling I have seen from an Indian in a long, long time,” he added.
