Virat Kohli had earlier stated that players like Jasprit Bumrah need proper workload management during the Indian Premier League in order to keep them fit and fine for the World Cup.

Bumrah has become one of the most feared fast bowlers in the last one year and is being tipped as the bowler to watch out for at World Cup in England and Wales.

However, Mumbai Indians head coach Mahela Jayawardene feels Bumrah must play in the league and the Indian cricket team shouldn’t lose its sleep over Bumrah’s workload.

“The work load needs to be managed but at the same time they need to play good competitive cricket. I think India has managed their players well over the years giving them breaks. I think your best players need to play. They can’t stay at home and turn up and perform. It’s about that fine balance and as long as we can manage that, they will be fine,” Jayawardene told India Today.

Bumrah’s unorthodox bowling action could prove to be his nemesis during the course of the tournament.
