Brendon McCullum reveals England's strategy to counter Jasprit Bumrah | India vs England

Jasprit Bumrah has been England's biggest nightmare on their trip to India, with the pacer single-handedly taming the Three Lions in the 2nd Test with 9 wickets in the match.

After losing the Vizag Test, Brendon McCullum opened up on England's plan to tackle Bumrah. During an interaction with ESPNcricinfo, he said, "We don't really do theories. It is about making sure the guys are totally clear and present, confident and have conviction in their method. They are a lot better than I ever was and they will work it out how best to go about it."

"There are contrasting ways of going about it. We will see where we get to. For now, we have to tip our cap to Jasprit and say that spell (in the first innings of the second Test) was as good as anything we have seen so far on this trip," he added.

"It's all condition-dependent. When the ball is swinging like that he becomes even more of a threat. He is a fantastic bowler in all forms of the game. He is unique with his release points and with how much swing he can generate in the air."

"No doubt he is very good, but we have come up against very good bowlers all through the last 18 months or so and found ways to counter them and that is what we have got to do in this one," McCullum concluded.
