The start of the Indian cricket team’s tour of England has been disappointing. The team had to face a crushing defeat against New Zealand in the World Test Championship and after this defeat, Indian team captain Virat Kohli can make some changes in the team. The team will play five matches against England in August-September, with the first match starting on August 4.
This time the Indian team will definitely make some changes in the playing XI, away from the World Championship on the England tour. Along with the batsmen, some bowlers are also going to be blamed, in which the name of Jasprit Bumrah is at the forefront. Let’s take a look at three such bowlers who can be included in place of Bumrah in the Test series against England.
He has done exceptionally well for India. Not only bowling but he is also expert in batting. Thakur could prove to be a good replacement for Jasprit Bumrah in the series against England. Shardul has played a total of 2 Test matches in his career in which he has taken 7 wickets in his name. Apart from this, he has also scored 73 runs while doing well in batting. He made a big contribution to Team India’s victory by hitting a brilliant half-century in the Gabba Test against Australia.
India’s rising fast bowler Mohammed Siraj made his Test debut against Australia and impressed everyone by taking 6 wickets in the match and taking 12 wickets in the entire series. So far, he has taken 16 wickets in 5 Test matches of his career. Siraj has the ability to swing the ball well, as well as he has the talent of speed and seam movement. Siraj has the power to take wickets along with the new ball as well as in the middle overs. He can replace Bumrah in the Test series against England.
Right-arm pacer Umesh Yadav, who has taken 148 wickets in 48 Test matches for India, can also prove to be a good replacement for Jasprit Bumrah in the upcoming England series. Umesh can also bat decently in the lower order. On the last tour of Australia, he played for India in the first match and he also took 4 wickets before getting injured.
