When Ishant Sharma stopped Virat Kohli from having a chat with Jasprit Bumrah on the field | Cricket News

Jasprit Bumrah still recovering from a protracted back injury and was not in the Indian team for the first two Tests vs Australia. But over the years, Bumrah has of course experienced an extraordinary rise — from a rookie pitcher to the leader of India’s speed attack.
Before the first India vs Australia Testing started on 9th February in Nagpur, another pitcher, who has been an intrinsic part of India’s speed battery for many years, spoke of what happened when Virat kohli told him he wanted to chat on the field with Bumrah after his first game below par in a Test match in Australia.
Ishant Sharmain a video on Cricbuzz, said – “I knew one day Bumrah would be the leader… I remember in 2018, when we played the Australian Test, the first time Bumrah didn’t play well. Virat said to me – ‘I think I should go and talk to him’.”

Remember, 2018 was the year Bumrah launched the Test, in the Cape Town Test with Proteas in January of that year.
So what happened next?
Ishant revealed how he asked Virat not to talk it over with Bumrah, which may have made the then rookie speed player even more upset.

Ishant said – “I replied – ‘He (Bumrah) is a very smart pitcher. He understands everything. Usko chhor de. Usko pata hai kya karna, kya nahi karna hai (Leave him alone. He understands what is necessary). That he’s pretty smart. He understands the game and the situation.’ When you understand the situation, especially in Test baseballyou can come back quickly,” Ishant added on Cricbuzz.
So far in her Test career, Bumrah has played 30 Tests and won 128 hits, with a best run of 6/27.
