India made a spectacular comeback in the second Test at Lord’s against England, winning the match by 151 runs. After the victory, the team led by Virat Kohli has been receiving plenty of praise. However, even after a spectacular win, there are some issues that India need to address before the third Test, which begins at Headingley on August 25. One of these is the number of no-balls thrown by Indian bowlers. In the Lord’s Test, India threw a total of 17 no-balls in the first innings, of which only 13 were bowled by Preet Bumrah. He scored four no-balls in one over.

Meanwhile, South African former fast bowler Monde Jondeki has revealed what Bumrah must do to avoid throwing any balls. Jondecki thinks Bumrah will soon have to work on his run-up to avoid bowling a no-ball. Apart from Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja also scored twice in the first innings and Moeen Ali in the second innings. Speaking to BD Crickettime, Zondake said, ‘It’s very strange that I bowled over 10 balls. Because this is so awkward, they have to work on their race. Working on it helps them avoid it.
He said, ‘I don’t remember that I had four no balls in one over. But I can say that I have worked hard not to have problems since my career. Bumrah is a good bowler and I am sure he will work to avoid this.

Bumrah scored 79 in his 26 overs in the first innings, but could not get a single wicket in his name. He scored three no-balls in England’s innings twice in a row. However, he made a comeback in the second innings and took three wickets for 33 runs in 15 overs. India have taken a 1-0 lead in the five-match Test series. The third Test between the two teams will be played at Headingley on August 25.
