Jasprit Bumrah, the most potent bowlers in the world, has once again managed to impress one and all with his amazing performances in the just concluded season of Indian Premier League.
Jasprit’s death-overs mastery in the Indian Premier League has proved that he is here to create and break many records.
Over these years, Bumrah has upped his game like no one else. He has gone strength to strength and transformed his game completely. And the thing that makes him stand-out in the limited overs is his ability to bowl the yorker and make the opposition run for the money as they try to hit the ball.
The man is lethal with the old ball and the new ball and has several variations in his game including his jaw-dropping yorkers.
Jasprit Bumrah – The Key Factor For India :
What helped him improve as a bowler was Test cricket, today he is much more confident and physically better than ever before. His physicality and stamina has definitely added more to his confident and has impacted his performance in the limited overs as well.
Not just physical but his mental strength has been a key factor in his improvement. The experience of playing in Test cricket in the last two years has made him more patient and has allowed him to remain calm even in the toughest situation, which can be the key factor for the men-in-blue in the upcoming world cup.
With an economy rate of 4.51 and an average of 22.15 in the ODIs, Bumrah will be one of the key players in India’s journey during the World Cup. He will be leading the pace attack of Indian bowling, just like how Zaheer Khan did for India during World Cup 2011.
Bumrah – Kohli’s Go To Man:
In the upcoming World Cup, there are going to be many close games where Bumrah can do wonders for the team by holding the nerves and turn the tables.
The kind of form Bumrah is in, there’s no denying to the fact that Virat Kohli can fall back on him anytime to get some crucial wickets and to contain some runs.
Even if 8-to-12 runs are needed in the last overs, Bumrah has the capacity to contain the runs for the team with not just his yorkers and with his back of the length as well, which swings both ways and reverse swings, too.

“We know exactly how good Jasprit is. He is the number one bowler in Mumbai Indians and world cricket,”
Well, normally its the thrilling batting skills of our men-in-blue that makes the opposition shiver but for the upcoming World Cup, all thanks to the likes of Bumrah, its seems its the bowling that the opposition teams need to be wary about.
