IND vs AUS 2022: ‘He’s going to break people’s toes’


India’s star point guard, Jasprit Bumrah, was impressive with the ball in his comeback game, playing a good spell in the second T20I against Australia on Friday, September 23.

Former Pakistani cricketer Danish Kaneria has praised the Indian pacer for his bowling exploits in the contest. He pointed out how Bumrah sent Australia captain Aaron Finch to pack a brilliant yorker.

Notably, Finch, after his dismissal, was seen applauding the bowler for throwing an almost unplayable delivery. Kaneria suggested Bumrah could very well break batting toes at the upcoming 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia.

Speaking on his YouTube channel after Men in Blue’s six-wicket win over Australia, he said:

“Jasprit Bumrah is back on track. Opposing teams need to beware as he looks in super pace. While he started with a wide he was over 140 mph. He then knocked down a brilliant yorker to dismiss Aaron Finch.”

Kaneria added:

“Finch couldn’t help but applaud the delivery. It’s never easy to come back from injury. He cast a great spell under pressure. He’s going to break people’s toes at the T20 World Cup .”

The second game between India and Australia was reduced to eight per side due to the wet outfield. Bumrah gave up 23 runs from his full quota from two overs and landed a crucial wicket.

‘Hasn’t made a comeback’ – Denmark’s Kaneria slams Harshal Patel’s recent performances

Harshal Patel, who returned to cricket in the Australian Series after recovering from a rib injury, looked discolored in the opening two matches.

Kaneria pointed out that the designer was always looking for pace and had lost a lot of points. He noted that although it was difficult to grab the ball in the second game due to the wet conditions, a player is expected to do better bowling at the highest level.

He added:

“Harshal Patel didn’t make a strong comeback. He also gave up a lot of points in that game. Yes the ball was wet because of the conditions but that shouldn’t be an excuse if you’re playing internationally level.”

Patel has been under the scanner for his underwhelming performance in the ongoing series. The 31-year-old is yet to land a single wicket in the series and has a dismal save rate of 13.50 under his belt.
