“Jasprit Bumrah had Punjab kings…”Ex IPL winning Coach massive criticism on Hardik Pandya’s tactics

Ex-IPL-winning coach Tom Moody feels that Hardik Panda has not been able to use Mumbai Indians pace sensation Jasprit Bumrah.

Jasprit Bumrah was phenomenal with the ball against the Punjab Kings, as he picked up three wickets at the top.

In his interaction with Star Sports, Tom Moddy said, “Again, Mumbai is leaning on him so much to turn their fortunes around. He bowled two overs early on and had the Punjab Kings on their backs. But, interestingly enough, he didn’t bowl another over until the 13th.”

Tom Moody further added, “He’s at the peak of his powers at the moment. And that’s my point about why I think the Mumbai Indians let the Punjab Kings back into this contest. (Gerald) Coetzee and Bumrah for mine, and I’ll be interested to hear what the other fast bowlers think on this show. Should (Bumrah) have bowled again to be able to put Punjab completely out onto the campus?” 

Even former South African spearhead Dale Steyn also feels that Jasprit Bumrah and Gerald Coetzee need support from the other bowlers going forward into the tournament.

Dale Steyn said, “We want to see them (MI) close out games early by bringing Bumrah back or Coetzee. But then they have to depend on guys like Hardik to finish off, who hasn’t been bowling as well of late, and some of the other bowlers traveling like (Romario) Shepherd; they may struggle in the back end.

“Mumbai are in a situation now where they have to tactically figure things out, but they also need somebody to step up, their bowlers to step up and really help out Bumrah and Coetzee, because if they (MI) keep going the way they are, they might lose more points again.”
