3. Jasprit Bumrah-Bhuvneshwar Kumar
Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar will definitely be part of India’s playing XI in the T20 World Cup 2021. Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s sensational swing and Jasprit Bumrah’s deadly Yorkers will play a big role in India’s success in the World Cup.
Jasprit Bumrah is India’s highest wicket-taker among fast bowlers in T20 internationals and Bhuvneshwar Kumar is India’s second-highest wicket-taker among fast bowlers in T20 Internationals. They both have completed the half-century of T20I games and have a plethora of experience under their belt.
India’s success in the T20 World Cup will depend a lot on the performance of the Bhuvi-Bumrah duo, they need to pick crucial wickets for India both with the new ball and old ball.
Also, they both will play IPL before the World Cup 2021 and they both are the first choice pacers of the IPL franchises so the pace duo is expected to take a good form in their bag heading into the World Cup. If Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have an excellent outing it will have a direct impact on India’s performance and the Virat Kohli-led side can definitely win the T20 World Cup trophy.
