I will think about playing county cricket in the future: Bumrah
It is cognisance of the fact that BCCI has implemented the workload management policy and ever since it was passed, cricketers are given necessary rest for the upcoming assignments. The latest ones are India’s three frontline pacers as they are rested for the South Africa series.
Bumrah who is one of the pacers who is rested for India’s next assignment is willing to play county cricket in the future. He made it very clear that if he gets such an opportunity to play country he would surely consider playing it.
“Maybe in the future (I will think about county), but I don’t know as of now because you are playing throughout the year, so there is a little period of time where you get time off,” No.1 ranked ODI bowler Jasprit Bumrah was quoted saying by the Sportstar.
As India’s governing body, BCCI introduced the workload management policy seriously, key pacers Jasprit Bumrah along with Mohammad Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have all been rested for the forthcoming home series against South Africa, that starts on September 15.
“And when you get time off, that is the time you want to work on your body, so you can’t be playing 12 months a year (and) you have to take care of your body as well. Maybe in the future, if you get an opportunity (I will think about it). I always wanted to play Test cricket,” he said.
“… it has been 12 Test matches (so far). I have played Test matches in South Africa, Australia, England, West Indies and I am learning from this experience that I have got. Now, playing in India will pose its own challenges and I am looking forward to it,” he concluded.
