METICULOUS PLANNING IS IMPORTANT

Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah says that he believes that meticulous planning before an overseas tour is very important for him. Any tour is not just confined to cricket for him, he also loves to explore the country.

“You look to enjoy the country, you look to see the place. That is how you get to know about the culture of the place and you eventually start enjoying the country. It then reflects on your performance as well,” Bumrah, was quoted as saying.

IT’S IMPORTANT TO SEE NEW PLACES TOO

“Whenever I visit a new country, I always plan well in advance. I even watch a few videos about there. What works well over there? What are their home teams up-to? It’s crucial to enjoy the country as well and see nice places”, he said further.

Bumrah, an essential bowler for the Indian team in limited overs cricket, performed very well in his debut Test series in South Africa, by grabbing 14 wickets in three matches. After suffering a thumb injury in the T20 series against Ireland, Bumrah was out of the following T20 and ODI series against England.

I TAKE TEST CRICKET SERIOUSLY: BUMRAH

Recalling his Test debut in South African, the 24-year-old said,”I always wished to play Test cricket. I was very happy when I got selected for my debut in South Africa.I always loved Test cricket and take it seriously.”

“I enjoy playing all the formats but Test cricket is something in which I try to put the extra focus. Because in Test cricket everything is tested.”

He is determined to prove himself in the longest format as well.

“Hopefully, whenever I play more, I’ll be able to do well and gain more confidence. So that will reflect on other formats as well. I don’t have any personal goals. I take it one day at a time,” he added.
