Indian pitcher Jasprit Bumrah's angle to the crease, which is different from other pitchers, although his speed makes him a difficult pitcher, England batsman Dawid Malan said. England's No.3 batsman, who is called up for the third test against India at Headingley and immediately impressed at 70, jokes that the best way to keep Bumrah on the sidelines is to take a punch .

"Get off strike. I guess that will be the only way not to face him," said Malan to IANS during an interview. "He has obviously been fantastic. He has got a really different angle to the crease to other bowlers. You know he bowls 90 miles per hour when he wants and he can hit you on the head and knock your poles out as well if he wants to," added Malan. "So, he is a really challenging bowler to face. You know it (the best way to counter him) is about to trying to minimise certain ways to get out to him. And hope it is your day and you can get on top of it. He has been fantastic so far," said Malan further.

The left-handed batsman, who scored 31 bars in the first innings of the Fourth Test and then crushed five of 33 balls before running out in the second inning, has no regrets for not being aggressive despite the team's 100 starting points. by the opener. However, he admitted that the batsmen didn't put enough pressure on the Indian bowlers and got too few runs in the first innings.

"You don't win the game in the first hour of the day. By batting for two sessions is what earns [you] the right. We as a team probably didn't do that well enough. Yes, you have to put pressure on the bowlers. You have to find ways of scoring. There are different ways to win games. Looking back at it, India bowled fantastically well to win. We probably lost that game by not scoring enough runs in the first innings on a really good batting pitch. That put us under pressure on the last day," said Malan

The 34-year-old batsman has returned to testing cricket in the current series after a three-year hiatus. He was no more than a white ball cricketer. Malan said it can be difficult to switch from trial cricket to white ball cricket.

"It can be tough at times. Fortunately for myself, I see myself more as a traditional batsman. I don't think I am a massive slogger of the ball. You know when I train for my white-ball cricket, I put a lot of emphasis on the basics. If I can do the basics really well, I believe I can play white-ball cricket really well. That is my template to cricket. I work a lot on that. It has helped me so far," explained Malan on the sidelines of joining GoNuts social media platform.
