Kevin Pietersen tips off batters on how to defend against Bumrah

Former England all-rounder Kevin Pietersen gives an advice to all ICC Cricket World Cup batters to defend against Indian fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah in a tweet.

Pietersen said the key to resisting Bumrah is to take off an off-stump guard and try to hit Bumrah straight down the pitch and square leg.

“Quick memo to all right handed batters - get onto off stump against Bumrah and look to hit him from, straight back at the stumps to square leg. Eliminate the off-side completely!” said Pietersen on his Twitter.

This comes after India won their first World Cup match against South Africa by six wickets with 15 balls left. Bumrah scalped two wickets and ended the match with 2/35 along with Indian spin bowler Yuzvendra Chahal who had 4/51.

Additionally, Bumrah has taken 44 wickets in death overs, which remains unbeaten, since his one-day international (ODI) debut. He plays at an average of 22.0 and has a strike rate of 29.5.

Currently, India has odds of +305 of winning the entire tournament.
