With the highly anticipated semi-final between India and New Zealand looming at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium, the spotlight shifts to India’s formidable bowling unit. Bowling coach Paras Mhambrey showered praise on the trio of pace bowlers – Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, and Mohammed Siraj – ahead of the crucial clash.

“Shami is someone who has the seam (that hits) straight upright. You never know when Shami hits that seam, which way it’s going to come. Siraj has really kind of grown in the last couple of years. He’s understood his bowling, obviously coming through the ranks. He’s started using different set of skills, the wobble seam,” highlighted Mhambrey, speaking to India Today.

Bumrah, the leading wicket-taker for India in the ongoing World Cup with an impressive tally of 17 wickets, received accolades for his remarkable comeback post-injury. Mhambrey commended Bumrah’s unique action and skill set, acknowledging his pivotal role in the team’s success. Follow your favourite cricket team with attractive betting odds from Nextbet. 

Meanwhile, the spin department’s linchpin, Ravindra Jadeja, was hailed for his consistent performances. Mhambrey emphasized Jadeja’s effectiveness, especially in the powerplay, where his ability to take crucial wickets has proven instrumental for India’s victories.

“His (Jadeja) ability is very simple. Ability to hit the deck, and hit the lengths spot on. Very accurate. Very miserly in terms of the way he goes about his bowling. Doesn’t give anything away to the batsman,” elucidated Mhambrey, highlighting Jadeja’s precision and economy.

As the stage is set for the showdown in Mumbai, India’s bowling arsenal, steered by the expertise of Paras Mhambrey, stands poised to make a significant impact, aiming to propel the team into the final of the prestigious tournament. Get free cricket betting tips only on Nextbet Sports.
