IND vs SA 2021-22: In the second session of the third day of the Boxing Day Test match between India and South Africa (IND vs SA) in Centurion, a disturbing case came to light for the Indian team. In fact, Jasprit Bumrah, who was bowling in the 11th over during the first innings of South Africa, got injured while bowling his fifth ball. After bowling, his right leg was badly twisted in the follow-through, after which Bumrah was seen in a lot of trouble and he had to leave the ground and go back. However, no official statement has come out about his injury so far.
This injury of Bumrah may not be very fatal, but if it happens then it can prove to be a cause of great trouble for the Indian team. Bumrah (Jasprit Bumrah) is the leader of the bowling order of Team India. And on the bouncy pitch of South Africa, he can prove to be more dangerous.
However, on the tour of South Africa, the Indian team has a great army of fast bowlers. In such a situation, even if Bumrah is out of the series, then the team has such players, who can fulfill his lack in a good way. Today we will tell you about those 2 fast bowlers, who will not let Team India miss him much when Bumrah is out.
This bowler will get the place in place of Jasprit Bumrah
1. Ishant Sharma
Tall fast bowler Ishant Sharma, who plays domestic cricket for Delhi, is the most experienced player of the Indian team on the tour of South Africa. Ishant has experience in more than 100 Test matches. In the last few matches, he has appeared to be a little deviated from the rhythm. But in his long career, Ishant has done some such charisma on foreign pitches, which is enough to give him a chance to make a comeback.
South Africa’s bouncy pitch and Ishant’s experience can be of great use to Team India. Sharma has played a total of 7 matches in South Africa so far. In 13 innings of these 7 matches, Ishant has taken 20 wickets.
2. Umesh Yadav
Over the years, Indian fast bowlers have led the team to many historic victories due to their stellar performances in Test cricket. Umesh Yadav is also the bowler of this bowling line-up. In the presence of bowlers like Bumrah and Shami, they do not get some special opportunities. But whenever he gets the opportunity, he has taken full advantage of it. Recently, Umesh also bowled brilliantly in the home Test series played against New Zealand.
Umesh Yadav can prove to be very dangerous on the bouncy pitch of South Africa. So far he has not got a chance to play any Test on South African soil. Umesh has the ability to bowl consistently at speeds above 150. Yadav has so far taken 156 wickets in 51 Tests for Team India.
