Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt thinks that the top pacer will be missed by India during the multi-nation tournament.

“Jasprit Bumrah will undoubtedly be missed by India. When a bowler like Bumrah is absent, it does affect things significantly. In addition to being a very skilled bowler, he has extensive experience. He is a match-winner because of his excellent bowling in the last few overs and his excellent use of the new ball.”

The last time Jasprit Bumrah played was during the white-ball part of India’s tour of England last month. However, a back spasm prevented him from playing in the third and final ODI of the series.

Salman Butt on India’s pace attack:

The young bowlers from India now have a lot of experience playing international cricket, Salman Butt continued. Salman Butt also emphasized how the administration of the squad has consistently provided them opportunities.

“India’s young bowlers have had a plethora of opportunities. Despite their youth, they have all played international cricket before. They will feel confident since they have played a lot of cricket. While Bumrah is the finest of the bunch, the others are not exactly fresh either.”
