What a brilliant career it has been for Jasprit Bumrah in the game of cricket. The way he has grown his game and enhanced skills have been superb, which clearly showed in his performance graphs in ICC Bowler Rankings across the formats. Meanwhile, cricketer-turned-analyst, Aakash Chopra believes that Jasprit Bumrah is Virat Kohli of Indian bowling or more than him.

Last night, it was a stunning show from Jasprit Bumrah. Just when everyone thought that India will be losing the game, his stunning over brought back India into the game. In fact, that over from Bumrah kept India on the driver seat to seal the victory before the poor over from Umesh Yadav.

Maybe, Jasprit Bumrah is more important than Virat Kohli – Aakash Chopra

Meanwhile, the former Indian batsman Aakash Chopra hailed Jasprit Bumrah for his exceptional work. He termed Bumrah as the Virat Kohli of India and also felt that Bumrah is more important for the team than the skipper Virat Kohli.

Digging into his tweet, it read ”Bumrah is Kohli of the Indian bowling. Or maybe, he’s even more important than his skipper. What. An. Asset.”

The emergence of Jasprit Bumrah in the game of cricket is quite a story. Out of nowhere, without any hype, Jasprit Bumrah has been named in the Mumbai Indians setup in Indian Premier League. He got the backing from the skipper Rohit Sharma and the key individual Sachin Tendulkar right from the start of the youngster’s career.

In his first game, he was smashed to three boundaries by the Indian run-machine Virat Kohli. But, then came the stunning delivery to trap him LBW and then on, he was a force to reckon with. He made great progress to become the best in the business.

After the stunning show in IPL, he performed exceptionally in the domestic circuit to receive the call-up for Indian National Cricket Team. His unorthodox action helped his progress and within no time, he became the go-to bowler for India.
