Bumrah was equally clever and powerful in defending players who took a break after a series or two under workload management.
In short, he was recording a vote from batting legend Sunil Gavaskar, who often expressed displeasure about the players who took a break.
Look, I don’t agree with the idea of giving players a break. Not at all. You don’t relax during IPL, so why ask when playing for India? I do not agree. You have to play for India. Don’t talk about rest.
In T20, there are only 20 overs in an innings. It does not affect your body. Test matches have an effect on mind and body, I agree with that. But I don’t think there is much of a problem in T20 cricket.
Bumrah remembered the question at a post-match press conference at the Oval and was not too keen on consulting.
“You need to stay fresh and you need to take care of your body. Sometimes you need 9 or 10 hours of sleep compared to the usual 8 hours of sleep. Recovery is very important because fast bowling is hard work and therefore affects the body.
“But this is an aspect of cricket that should be accepted by everyone who plays professional cricket,” Bumrah told a post-ODI press conference at the Oval.
“No complaints because we are professional cricketers who dreamed of playing for India. So we have to do our best, including travel, and the challenge is to stay fresh and take control. “
Bumrah said, “I respect Rai but don’t take him seriously.” Straightforward and deadly as his yorker, it’s not!
