India’s pace bowling spearhead, Jasprit Bumrah on Thursday, while commenting on the pitches in the ongoing ICC World Cup 2019 said that pitches for white-ball in England are the ‘flattest’ in the World Cup.

"Whatever white ball cricket I have played so far, I felt the flattest wickets are those in England. There's no help for the bowlers on these tracks," Bumrah said during an interaction with the media in Southampton.
The right-arm seamer remarked that there is no swing both in the air or off the pitch. “You see cloud cover and feel that the ball will swing but neither there is seam movement nor there is swing," He said.

Bumrah has been India’s backbone for a long time now. He bowls with the new ball, gives his team breakthrough in the middle overs while he is a death overs specialist as well. His spectacular yorkers and deceiving slower-balls often get the batsmen in trouble.

The Gujrat native has been going good in the World Cup thus far. With no support from the wicket, he insisted that bowlers must stick to accuracy and variations to find success in England,
"You have to rely a lot on your accuracy and clarity. So that's what we try to do. We know that wickets are flat in England and while bowling, we take that into consideration as the worst possible scenario. So if there is a bit of help, then adjustment becomes easy," he added.
