And Jasprit is exactly the opposite: it is a stuttering, short run,” Bishop informed Cricbuzz.
“Until at present, I’m amazed as to the place the tempo comes from. And he has acquired a critical ability set. The approach he swung the ball within the Caribbean, for instance, and the best way he can up his tempo and nonetheless apply management to it.
“And then after I hear him converse in regards to the recreation and break the sport down, there I see a generational expertise. Once he can keep match, he’s a complete bundle,” he added.

“My problem with Bumrah is… and I mentioned it to him the last time I saw him in England… is how long that body is going to hold up with that short run-up and the effort he has to put him in his bowling. It’s a human body and not a machine.”
