Jasprit Bumrah receives huge compliments from cricket legend Sunil Gavaskar

Jasprit Bumrah is one of the most talented fast bowlers of our time. With excellent line and length, he is noted for his ability to irritate batters. For the just finished white-ball series against the West Indies, the fast bowler has been rested. He has been called up to the Sri Lankan T20I and Test squads.

In three Twenty20 matches and two Tests, India will face Sri Lanka. On February 24, the first Test will take place at Lucknow’s Ekana Cricket Stadium.

Jasprit Bumrah is regarded as one of the world’s top pacers. The 28-year-old fast bowler is a complete package. He bowls with a pace, accuracy, and variety that most bowlers can’t match. Bumrah will be India’s x-factor in the forthcoming World Cups, and his performance will be key to the Indian team’s success.

The 28-year-old plays an important part for the Mumbai Indians and is highly regarded by the team’s management. He was the Mumbai Indians’ second retainer for the IPL 2022 season. Due to the absence of Rishabh Pant and KL Rahul, the pacer has been named India’s vice-captain for the upcoming T20I and Test series against Sri Lanka.

Sunil Gavaskar, a former Indian cricketer who has been closely studying Jasprit Bumrah’s exploits for some time, has stated that Bumrah can fit into any squad in the globe. For Indian fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah, this is a great compliment. 

The depth of the bowling unit has impressed the 1983 World Cup winner. He went on to say that a pace product like Jasprit Bumrah should not be overlooked because he can play for any team in the globe, not just the Indian cricket team.

“Bumrah is present. Don’t overlook him. He is capable of walking into any squad in the world, not only the India team. Then there’s Mohammed Siraj, Mohammed Shami, and so on. You’re spoiled for choice. “Sunil Gavaskar spoke to Star Sports about it.

In addition, Gavaskar mentioned Deepak Chahar, who has wowed everyone with his all-round potential. He has not only been able to swing the ball in both directions to cause batters problems, but he has also helped with the bat. 

“He’s a fantastic swing bowler.” He also has additional space. “Chahar isn’t particularly clear, but he moves the ball at a good velocity, which makes batsmen’s lives difficult,” Gavaskar remarked.

“Apart from that, Deepak Chahar has in-swinger and out-swinger bowling weapons. As a result, he is among the most productive bowlers. And he has both an in-swinger and an out-swinger without a perceptible change in action,” he continued.

“So when you have someone like him and Bhuvneshwar Kumar on the bench after two fantastic performances in the series,” Sunil Gavaskar continued, “India is blessed in terms of bowling.”
