Australian legend Glen McGrath has suggested that Jasprit Bumrah requires an ‘off-season’ since his bowling action could result in the ace India pacer suffering further injuries, warned legendary Australian pacer Glenn McGrath here on Tuesday.

Bumrah has spent a prolonged period on the shelf for undergoing a surgery for stress fracture on his back in March 2023, while being already out of action since September 2022. In between, he also missed the 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia as well as the IPL 2023.

The right-arm pacer, returned to action a little earlier than expected to lead India in their three-match T20I tour of Ireland last August and went on to bag 20 wickets in the 50-over World Cup.

McGrath said that given his bowling action and workload, Bumrah needs time off from the game given the amount of effort that goes into his bowling.

“The last two strides that he takes, he just powers into the crease. Thus, his momentum increases, and that’s where he gets the pace,” McGrath said during an interaction with the media here at the MRF Pace Foundation.

“Someone like Bumrah needs an off-season because he puts so much into every ball. With so much extensive effort, he needs a break. If he keeps playing, the amount of pressure created given the bowling action he has, he is bound to get injured, which he has in the past,” said the fast bowling great.
