Jasprit Bumrah, the leader of India’s brisk play, has recently been in frightening form. Additionally, his batting abilities appear to have improved as a result of his confidence.
In the fifth Test against England, Bumrah led the team without Rohit Sharma, and he made history by scoring 35 runs off only one Stuart Broad over. In Broad’s over, which contained five wides, he was hit for two enormous sixes (one came off a no-ball), four boundaries, and a single. In the game, he also claimed five wickets.
In the first ODI, he bowled a hot and nearly unplayable session of 6/19 against England, which resulted in the home team being dismissed for just 110. He was named Man of the Match for his outstanding efforts, which ultimately assisted India in claiming a convincing 10-wicket victory.
Jasprit Bumrah Has Been Very Consistent In The Last 4 Years: Ashish Nehra
Bumrah, in Nehra’s opinion, is an “excellent” bowler.
“Be it any format, Bumrah, in the last four years, he has been outstanding. The most important thing about Bumrah is that he has been consistent and kept the learning process going. He makes mistakes and then learns from those and brings something new to the table. When you speak about good bowling and consistency, Bumrah and Shami are the two names that pop up in my mind. The way Bumrah has been bowling is just outstanding.
Bumrah is taking the burden on his shoulders which is just applaudable. In IPL, you will see different wickets and pressure and Bumrah has proved himself in every test. He has the x factor which is very good for Team India,” Nehra told the Times of India.
“When it comes to let-arm fast bowling, Arshdeep is closest. He has impressed me a lot. India have tried Khaleel Ahmed and T Natarajan but Arshdeep impressed me.” Nehra added when asked about left-arm fast bowlers.
Bumrah will hope that he can continue his good form going in the series decider on Sunday.
