West Indies legend Michael Holding has serious doubts over Jasprit Bumrah's ability as a new ball bowler and said his specific skills does not make him an automatic choice in the playing eleven during India's tour of England later this year. "I am not sure he is going to be a good new ball bowler. He struggles to take the ball away from right-handers when bowling with the new ball. So he wouldn't be my first choice (on overseas tours). My first choice is always Bhuvneshwar Kumar," said Holding. "Then I would think about Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami. When India play in England, pitches will be drastically different to SA. I wouldn't play Bumrah because he bangs the ball in."
