Mumbai Indians’ (MI) batting coach, Kieron Pollard, has hinted that there are no plans to rest ace India pacer Jasprit Bumrah ahead of the T20 World Cup 2024. This comes despite MI being out of contention for the Indian Premier League (IPL) playoffs.

Bumrah, who is a key player for MI and the Indian cricket team, has been in excellent form this IPL season. His ability to bowl yorkers at will and his knack for picking up wickets at crucial junctures make him a vital asset for any team. However, with the T20 World Cup around the corner, there have been discussions about whether Bumrah should be rested to avoid any potential injury and to keep him fresh for the World Cup.

Pollard, however, dismissed these speculations in a post-match press conference. He stated, “I certainly haven’t had any discussions about that,” when asked if there are any plans to rest Bumrah from MI’s remaining two matches keeping in mind the upcoming T20 World Cup.

He further added, “We are all here to play an entire IPL. Sometimes when we think too far ahead of different things, thinking about World Cups, all these things could affect performances even from before the team was selected.”

This statement from Pollard suggests that MI’s focus is on finishing the IPL on a high note, regardless of their chances of making it to the playoffs. It also indicates that the decision to rest Jasprit Bumrah might be taken once he joins the Indian team for the World Cup preparations.

The T20 World Cup, to be co-hosted by USA and the West Indies, will begin on June 1. With less than a month left for the tournament, the workload management of players, especially someone as crucial as Jasprit Bumrah, becomes a topic of discussion. However, it seems like MI and Bumrah are not too worried about it at the moment.
