Will Jasprit Bumrah be rested from IPL 2024 keeping T20 World Cup in mind? Kieron Pollard responds

Mumbai Indians defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad on Monday (May 6) to somehow stay alive in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL). With fate no more in their hands, the five-time champions, one can say, have been more or less knocked out of IPL 2024. In that case, with T20 World Cup coming up, should one of India’s main bowlers Jasprit Bumrah be rested for the rest of the matches? This is the question being raised but MI batting coach Kieron Pollard has confirmed that no such discussion has taken place yet.

Bumrah is India’s best hope with the ball at the World Cup. He has been bowling exceptionally well this season and is also the proud owner of the purple cap with 18 wickets to his name in 12 matches. Notably, his economy of 6.21 in 47.5 overs in such a high-scoring season is unreal and for the same reason, there is a concern among fans and experts around his workload.
