West Indies legendary pacer Curtly Ambrose has praised Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah as he continues to recover from the back injury that has kept him out of the game for close to a year. Bumrah has been out of action since September 2022 and is likely to make a comeback in the series against Ireland. 

Jasprit Bumrah has been out of the Indian cricket team since September 2022. He withdrew from the T20I series against South Africa after playing two games against Australia. Bumrah missed the Asia Cup, T20 World Cup, and the WTC final against Australia.

Earlier this year, he tried to return in the series against Sri Lanka but the BCCI said that he did not regain complete fitness. The Indian pacer underwent back surgery and has been working at the NCA on his fitness ever since.

“When we used to talk about India in the past, we quickly thought… spin. But they have produced some good fast bowlers. Like Kapil Dev, a great all-rounder. Now there is Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj. They are wonderful players,” Ambrose told Rev Sports.

Jasprit Bumrah Is So Different And Unconventional: Curtly Ambrose

He then spoke about Jasprit Bumrah’s unique quality as a fast bowler. He termed him as an unconventional fast bowler but someone who is highly effective. 

“I do like Bumrah a lot because he is so different. He’s not the conventional fast bowler with a long run-up and other attributes. He has a short run-up, walks a bit, takes two or three strides and jumps to deliver. He is totally different but highly effective. That’s his style and it works for him,” he added saying. 

Meanwhile, India and West Indies are all set to play a three-match ODI series followed by a five-match T20I series. The ODI series starts with the first game in Barbados on July 27.
