Jasprit Bumrah has excelled across the formats for the national team and has been relied with the new ball to provide early breakthroughs. He has also been a death over specialist as his tight length does not allows batsmen to free arms and take him on often which makes him an economical even towards the end of an innings.
“Bumrah….probably because all three formats Tests, T20, One-days he has got all three covered,” Shaun Tait said in an exclusive interview to CricketAddictor.
Bumrah has short run-up, slightly slinging action and hits the deck hard which might be effective as far as wicket-taking and economic spells, but concerned have been raised about how long would it last. Legends like Michael Holding and Ian Bishop have time and again shown their concerns for his run-up. It might force him to take retirement from the Test format early to extend his limited-overs career.
Bumrah however has been a match-winner for India as batsmen have failed to pick him up. He has shown his prowess in South Africa, England, New Zealand and Australia and has been the finest bowlers at death.
A regular for Mumbai Indians, Bumrah, has picked up 82 wickets in IPL at an average over 26.
