Former India National Cricket Team pacer Zaheer Khan and former England National Cricket Team captain Michael Vaughan were highly impressed with the performance of premier pacer Jasprit Bumrah in the first ODI of the three-match ODI series against England at the Kennington Oval, London.

The 28-year-old pacer bagged 6 wickets in the match in 7.2 overs, giving away just 19 runs, to help India restrict England to a below-par total of 110. He also became the first Indian speedster to register a six-wicket haul in England in an ODI match.

Speaking to Cricbuzz after India’s 10-wicket win in the first ODI, Vaughan said that Bumrah is the best all-format bowler in the world. He elaborated:

“Great players realize when conditions are in their favour. There was some swing early on so he swung the ball. Later on, he bowled the yorkers. Without any question, he is the best all-format bowler by a country mile.

“Just give me Jasprit all day and I will throw the ball at him and tell him to do what he knows as he has many tricks up his sleeves.”

Former Indian pacer Zaheer Khan, who was also part of the same post-match discussion on Cricbuzz, lauded Bumrah and talked about his unique ability. He said:

“It was like Test cricket happening with the white ball, that’s the power he has that he can keep any batter under pressure. He has a late release point which is a unique ability to have for any fast bowler. He creates that awkward angle and has strong wrists which takes the ball away as well. He has got everything that keeps the batter guessing.”
