Shami And Bumrah’s Workload To Be Managed Against Australia, Says Virat Kohli

India skipper Virat Kohli has said Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami’s workload will be managed in the limited-overs series against Australia. Both the pacers are entering the series after a hectic campaign in the recently-concluded Indian Premier League (IPL) where they led their respective team’s attack,

Bumrah had played 15 games in the tournament and played a pivotal role in Mumbai Indians’ triumph. He had completed his four-over quota in all the games as finished the tournament as the second highest wicket-taker, picking up an impressive 27 wickets.

On the other hand, Shami played 14 games for Kings XI Punjab. He was his team’s highest wicket-taker with 20 wickets. Both the bowlers are in form and India would have definitely loved them to play all the ODIs and the T20Is but with an eye on the subsequent Test series, the team-management has decided to manage their workload.

Virat Kohli confirmed the same on the eve of the first ODI against Australia. Virat Kohli said that it would be important to manage the duo’s workload and stated that the team will be trying out youngsters in their absence.

“Of course, it is a no-brainer. They have gone through a full IPL season and bowled beautifully. They are bowling in great rhythm. It will be important to monitor the workload and that’s when the young guys come in. You want to see how people react in different situations,” said Virat Kohli.

“There is a fine balance you need to maintain and it is something we have been able to do since the past many years. Our bowlers have been fit and available for important matches. As a captain, it is crucial to know how the bowlers stand in terms of workload and how their bodies are feeling,” he added.
