Former Indian left-arm seamer Irfan Pathan had mentioned that Jasprit Bumrah is the biggest X factor for any team that he plays in the bowling unit and backed him to do well. Bumrah has been one of the most impressive pacers for India in the last four to five years and he has become the backbone of the Indian bowling attack across formats.
Bumrah had an excellent IPL season as well where he finished third in the race for the purple cap and he kept picking up wickets from one end despite the other pacers not having the best of times. He has the ability to win games on his own and the fact that he can hit the yorkers in the death overs is an added advantage for the Indian side.
Irfan Pathan Opines On Varun Chakravarthy’s Top Form
Irfan Pathan was quick to let out his views on the mystery spinner Varun Chakravarthy to have a big impact on the Indian side for the T20 World cup 2021 and expects him to do well. However, he was quite certain of Jasprit Bumrah remaining the biggest X factor for team India in any format from the bowling unit.
“When we talk about Varun Chakravarthy, it’s clear that he will do really well because he has mystery and also is in top form,”
“But according to me in terms of bowling, there is only one X factor and that is Bumrah. There can’t be a bigger X factor than Bumrah in any other team,” Irfan Pathan told on Star Sports connected
