Former India national cricket team player Saba Karim has said India’s leading pacemaker Jasprit Bumrah is returning from a long injury layoff and it may take some time to establish himself.
The 28-year-old speedster played his comeback game against Australia in the second T20I game of the series and conceded 23 runs while picking up 1 wicket. Notably, the second T20I was an eight-over-a-side contest. In the third and final T20I of the series, Bumrah went wicketless and conceded 50 runs for the first time in his T20I career.

Speaking on SPORTS18’s daily sports news show ‘SPORTS OVER THE TOP’, Saba Karim said:
“That’s true, but sometimes we tend to get carried away and want pacer bowlers to deliver very effectively in all T20 formats; that’s not going to happen. The whole format relies so much on unpredictability. So in one game you can have a really good start, in the second game some of the batsmen can go after you.”
Harshal Patel and Jasprit Bumrah can be good at the right time for India – Saba Karim
Midfielder Harshal Patel also recovered from injury in the series against Australia and had a rather poor start on the ball. However, Karim believes that both Harshal and Bumrah “can be good at the right time for India”.
“What is more important is that a particular bowler is supposed to have faith in his skill and abilities. So one can see that in Jasprit Bumrah.
“I can understand that he will be back after a long break and it may take some time to establish himself, but let’s not get carried away, Jasprit Bumrah in all the games he will play will be extremely effective, so that may not happen.
“Having said that, I think Jasprit Bumrah, the kind of bowling combination they have at the moment, and also Harshal Patel, both of them can be good at the right time for India,” added Karim.
