Ahead of the T20 World Cup, the zen approach of Jasprit Bumrah’s for young Indian pacers

The pace spearhead, Jasprit Bumrah, is ready to unleash his Yorkers at the upcoming T20 World Cup. Back from a successful injury recovery, Bumrah is all about keeping things simple and enjoying the game.
Bumrah also opened up about his zen approach to handling young Indian pacers and focusing on empowering them.
Jasprit Bumrah missed the 2022 T20 World Cup due to injury but returned strongly last year. He highlighted his comeback philosophy: “Focus on enjoying the game as much as I can... Reduce your pressure and enjoy the sport.”
He pinpoints Yorkers as a nightmare for batsmen. He credits his childhood love for tennis-ball cricket and constant practice with mastering this skill. “Repetition surely is... I keep on practicing it. Every skill needs practice,” he revealed.
As the senior pacer, Bumrah has a unique approach to guiding youngsters like Arshdeep Singh. “You don’t try to over-teach... They don’t need too much information,” he believes. He focuses on sharing his experience but lets them find their own solutions.
“It’s not like they have just been lucky to land here. So that is what I try to do. I do pass on certain information that I have gained from my experience,” he added.
“But I don’t try to burden them with too much information. Because that is a part of the journey as well.“
