‘A lot of opinions and noise that can impact you and create confusion as a player: Jasprit Bumrah
Team India senior pacer Jasprit Bumrah is in impressive form lately. The right-arm pacer had a good outing during the rescheduled Test match against The Three Lions and he has also backed his performance in the white-ball format.
Bumrah was excellent during the first ODI match after scalping a total of six wickets and demolishing the English batting line-up. The Men in Blue won the contest by ten wickets and Bumrah was adjudged player of the match for his excellent performance. He has now opened up about his mindset towards the game.
“I like to stay in the present. Nowadays, there are a lot of opinions and noise that can impact you and create confusion as a player. I try to focus on my evaluation and my preparations. I work on my processes and accept whatever the result is.” said Bumrah.
“I don’t think on the lines of I am very good in this particular format or how good I am and so on. I enjoy every format. Obviously, I respect people’s opinion, but I don’t take it seriously, whether it is good or bad. Very grateful for the applause that I get, but I always try to keep a stable head,” he added
“That’s the beauty of cricket. One day, you feel everything is going in your favor. On another day, nothing you try works. That’s why it’s important to be stable. Everyday is a new day. Sometimes you will get an edge with the first ball. Another day, you will bowl the whole day and not find the edge even once.”
