Indian bowler Jasprit Bumrah has once again found himself at the receiving end of criticism and trolling after his yet another poor performance in the ongoing first Test against New Zealand. The ongoing tour to New Zealand has become nothing more than a nightmare for Jasprit Bumrah after he went wicket-less in the ODI series, he was expected to make it big in the ongoing two-match Test series against New Zealand.
Jasprit’s glorious career was briefly halted by a back injury last year and ever since he has returned, he has failed to leave a mark with his performance as he has been giving back-to-back poor performances and is conceding many runs to the oppositions. e has been receiving criticism from all around for his performances.
Meanwhile, with strongest with players like Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Ishant Sharma, the Indian cricket team all set to take the first test away from New Zealanders, however, the New Zealand’s batsmen are giving a hard time to the Indian bowlers as they have already surpassed the target of 165 runs with Kane Williamson hitting 85 runs off 149 balls and Ross Taylor, Tom Blundell smashing 44 and 30 runs respectively.
In the ongoing Test match, Jasprit Bumrah is turning out to be the most expensive player for the Indian cricket team. So far, in 17 overs, Jasprit Bumrah has conceded 58 runs picking zero wickets.
Twitterati are trolling him left, right and center and are even asking for his exclusion from the team until he finds his lost form back again. Here, check out the reactions of Twitterati on this:
New zealand have decoded Bumrah.

Bumrah never been the same bowler after his injury. Today on well suited platform, new ball, first overs. And he still can't able to find his rhythm yet! Worrying signs. #NZvIND #Bumrah pic.twitter.com/yPXMCu5ljX

Bumrah never had anything extraordinary in him, it was just his awkward action & angles but that too gets exposed with time, prime example being Ajantha Mendis…& i don’t say this out of my hate for BCCI players. #NZvIND

Umesh should have played ahead of Bumrah in tests. Umesh was always a better test bowler than Bumrah . #NZvIND

Bumrah hasn't been bad but has looked more like a stock bowler. The good part is he is getting movement in this spell #NZvIND

Bumrah is not made for these tracks. Need better skillful swing bowlers. Bhuvi is the answer.

Seeing this performance, it's better we don't include bumrah in the team while playing in India
