“I’ve been training almost six days a week but have not bowled for a long period of time. So I don’t know how the body will react when I bowl first.”
Meanwhile, Bumrah had earlier stated that he’s not too troubled by the banning of hugs and excessive fives whereas celebrating because the International Cricket Council (ICC) plans to get cricket underway once more amid the coronavirus pandemic.
But, he hope for a substitute for the utilization of saliva on the ball whether it is banned.

“I do not know what pointers we’ll must observe once we come again, however I really feel there ought to be an alternate. If the ball is just not nicely maintained, it is troublesome for the bowlers.
“The grounds are getting shorter and shorter, the wickets have gotten flatter and flatter. So we’d like one thing, some different for the bowlers to take care of the ball in order that it will possibly do one thing – possibly reverse in the long run or standard swing,” he added.
