Ahmedabad: The workload of the Indian pacers needs to be carefully monitored during the upcoming World Test Championship series against South Africa and England which will consist of seven Tests, said bowling coach Paras Mambrey
India will play a two-Test series in the Rainbow Nation in December-January, followed by five matches against England at home between January and March.
Shami (24 wickets in 7 matches, 48.5 overs), Bumrah (20 wickets, 11 matches, 91.5 overs) and Siraj (14 wickets, 82.3 overs, 11 overs) bowled a lot in the World Cup. They are on the road from the Asian Cup in August-September.

“We have to be very smart with the way we go about managing the workload. These guys have played a lot of cricket, so we have to see how we want to go about it.
“We haven’t discussed it yet,” said Mambrey, whose contract also expired at the World Cup, during an interaction with reporters in the mixed zone on Sunday.
Mambrey was a quiet but influential backroom presence as he devised strategies with the pace unit for various oppositions.
It will be interesting to see how Bumrah fares in Test matches and whether his body will hold up to the rigors of the five-day game.
“We missed Bumrah a lot, and you see the difference he makes when he’s in the side. The way he went in this tournament in particular, it’s huge.
“It was challenging, but looking at it from the other side, it was an opportunity for us to work on the bench,” said the former Mumbai and India skipper.
While the Indian team is at the forefront of great pacers, Mambrey is also excited about the next crop.
“There is Mukesh (Kumar), Prasidh (Krishna), Avesh (Khan) and Kuldeep (Sen). I would look at it that way,” Mambrey said.
The bowling coach said Shami’s wicket-taking spree was incredible despite not playing the first four matches.
“He (Shami) was incredible. He obviously didn’t play the opening games, but the way he came back and bowled during the tournament was incredible.
“It wasn’t what we expected, but we always knew he always has that positive impact on the game. It was amazing,” Mambrey said.
