Indian team has a strong batting line-up as well as a splendid bowling side. And, among the fantastic bowlers, Jasprit Bumrah has showcased some fabulous skill-set that has given the Indian team an edge over the others making the dream of winning the World Cup more realistic.
In the past couple of years, Bumrah has proven his ability in all forms of cricket. Against Afghanistan on Saturday, it was Bumrah who bought the match in India’s favour getting them their fourth consecutive win in the World Cup tournament.
Former Australian captain, Michael Clarke believes that Bumrah can win India the mega tournament with his Spectacular bowling. He said, “As a captain, probably, you need someone like Bumrah to throw the ball, when you need wickets. He can open the bowling, bowl that 35th over when nothing is happening or bowl those last four overs at the death, which can win India a World Cup final.”
Further emphasising that there nothing that the strong bowler cannot do. He added, “With the brand new ball, he can swing and seam it. When the ball is doing nothing in the middle overs, he has the skill to trouble the batsmen. He can bowl close to 150 clicks and then at the death, he bowls those yorkers as good as anyone else. And if there is reverse swing, he is a genius.” Clarke further praised Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav for adding that extra skills to the team.
Although, when comparing with the Australian team Clarke stated that Bumrah may face a challenge against David Warner who is a spectacular batsman and has already scored 447 runs in the tournament.
