Here’s a short, straightforward guide to bowling in the death (and super) overs from one of the best in the business, Jasprit Bumrah: Break down the situation into what your team expects from you, assess pitch and conditions, assess the match situation, check the distance limit on all sides, especially square, then choose the deliveries from the available options
For Bumrah, one of the best death bowlers in the world, another key to pressure bowling success is not going into all of these situations with a set pattern, but always being « very proactive and smart «
« It’s hard to categorize [death bowling and super-over bowling] all at once, but it’s different, » he said in a media interaction on Tuesday. « It depends on how they treat it, but for me, I just try to keep it simple, I try to assess the gate, the situation, the dimensions of the boundaries and all that and then I choose my options.
« It’s very difficult to just say, ‘Oh, you should just play yorkers, you should just play slower’ You have to be very proactive [and] smart with the approach you want to take and what the counter also helps So all of those things I keep in mind and try to do what I can «
Bumrah has also been the Mumbai Indians’ go-to bowler for this season’s crunches, especially in the absence of Lasith Malinga, and is the third-highest wicket-taker with a total of 17 strokes. Already in 11 matches, the Mumbai Indians have had three Super Overs – one against the Royal Challengers Bangalore and two against the Kings XI Punjab in one game – of which Bumrah has broken his limit by two.
Mumbai’s new attacking look this time includes Trent Boult (16 wickets), James Pattinson (11 in eight games) and Nathan Coulter-Nile (two in three games), and how all those rapids have come together. stepped up and bowled together in tandem changed the way Bumrah was used, while retaining his specialist role to death
The Mumbai Indians used Boult’s undeniable skills with the new ball and Pattinson’s striking approach to open the bowling alley in almost every game except when Bumrah shared the new ball twice out of 11, against the Rajasthan Royals and the Chennai Super Kings Otherwise, Bumrah has had a slightly different and well-defined role in this IPL than in the past: a single bowl on the power play, one just after halfway and two to death – i.e. the 16th and 18th, i.e. 17th and 19th , depending on the opposition and the situation of the match
“It’s always tough when you’re playing in a pressure situation,” Bumrah said of bowling in death defending totals. “During that time bowlers can be under pressure and complicate things and think to a lot of things they shouldn’t
« I try to do things that I control I try to stay in the present, I try to take it one bullet at a time Whenever the pressure sets in I wonder ‘what is the team forcing me to do at that time? », then I split the whole situation I focus ball by ball, what I have to execute on that ball So [I try] to split things, I try to be in the present It helps me a lot It’s probably the goal in any situation «
Bumrah also said he didn’t come in with a pre-meditated thought of having to play each ball differently for the batsmen to guess. « It depends on what stage you play in the game Sometimes you might be looking to close the top, sometimes you take a bet or try an offensive approach It’s not that you have the same model or that you will repeat those balls or change with each delivery It depends on the big picture, what stage are you there on the match, what is the wicket offer, the dimensions of the pitch So you keep it all in the spirit and then decide what type of delivery you want «
No matter how many changes he talks about or the different bowling combinations the Mumbai Indians use, the one constant for them is that when they need a bowler in a high pressure situation, they don’t. ‘don’t need to think and just throw the ball at Bumrah
