IPL 2022, MI vs KKR: There’s a lot of noise outside, but it doesn’t bother Jasprit Bumrah. On Monday, Jasprit Bumrah took five wickets against the Kolkata Knight Riders.
Jasprit Bumrah of the Mumbai Indians, who picked his maiden fifer in the IPL, said he is happy with his rhythm this season and that the “noise outside” doesn’t bother him. Despite the five-wicket haul, Bumrah has only taken 10 wickets in 11 IPL matches this season. “Look, we prepare for the tournament and have a process; we don’t look at the end result,” Bumrah said at the post-match press conference following MI’s 52-run loss to KKR.

“If you understand the game, you have to really observe what’s going on, what the game is like. What situation you’re bowling in, and I was very happy with the rhythm going on throughout the tournament. ” Bumrah bowled exceptionally well to limit KKR to 165 for 9. The MI batters faltered once more, resulting in the team’s ninth loss in eleven games
“I’m aware that there is a lot of noise outside, but it doesn’t bother me. Because I am not someone who judges my performance based on what others think. What experts say, or whatever people want to say.” He explained.
MI vs KKR: Bumrah has struggled to pick wickets consistently this season, but the pacer believes that how he contributes to the team is more important.
“I look at my personal evaluation, I look at the processes that I have to follow, and I look at the end result on how I can contribute to the team, sometimes by bowling a good over and other ways.”
“So this is how I play cricket, and this is how I have always wanted to play cricket, and this is how I will continue to play.”
Searching for complete performance
Mumbai are already out of contention for the play-offs, and Bumrah admitted that the team was still looking for a “complete performance.”
“You are correct, we did not manage to close games; in many games, we came very close and crumbled in crucial situations.” “This is a new team, and our young players are learning and improving,” said Bumrah, one of the senior members.
“This is not an excuse for you losing because of it.” When new players arrive, they take their time learning the rules of the game. We’re looking for a complete performance, and we’re trying and working hard, but it’s not working this time,” he added.
Bumrah stated that MI will strive to perform well in the remaining three matches.
“Our focus in the remaining games is to give an ideal performance where everything clicks and we can come in the best case scenario,” he concluded.
