India bowler Jasprit Bumrah, who contributed to India's victory in the second T20I against England, credited Ashish Nehra for his success in the shortest format of the game and said that the guidance from the veteran pace colleague has been of great value. "I have played a few matches with him. Also played a World T20 match. His guidance is always valuable because he has played a lot of international matches and in a nice position to share his experience with us," he said.On his back of length deliveries executed in death overs, Bumrah said it's not right to have one kind of line and length balls in every match and should be adjusted according to the kind of wicket.

"It depends on the wicket. The back of length and slower deliveries on a big ground are helpful, but it is not the case on a smaller ground, because you may be hit for runs. The margin of error is less for any bowler in smaller grounds," he said.

The fielding of the Indian players were sloppy in the previous match but Bumrah said the team was working on how to make improvement in that department of the game.

"It's always difficult when there is dew. In the last match, there was a lot of dew. The ball comes faster than you expect. The high catches also become difficult because the ball is wet. It happens, we are working on it," Bumrah said.

"As a fielding unit, we have been doing well in the ODI series. It happens. Let's see how it goes in next match."

'Not Concerned About Umpiring Blunders'

Bumrah also sought to play down the controversy surrounding poor umpiring after England captain Eoin Morgan raised the issue after the second T20 International, saying both sides will have to move on with the game as decisions do not always go in favour of only one team.

"We don't focus too much on decisions made by umpires. Sometimes it (umpiring decision) goes in our favour and sometimes in their favour. That happens in cricket, so we have to move on with the game," Bumrah told reporters on the eve of the third and final T20 International against England here tomorrow.

He was replying to a query on Morgan's frustration over the quality of umpiring. The visitors had lost the second T20 International by five runs and Joe Root got a howler as umpire C Shamshuddin adjudged him lbw off Bumrah in the last over when the batsman had actually edged the ball.
