This India bowler has shown his talent with the ball as well as the bat on the tour of England and has won the hearts of legends by giving his best in every department.
Sunil Gavaskar is the former captain of India.
The five-match Test series between India and England (India vs England) could not end as expected. The fifth Test match was canceled two hours before the start of the Indian team as there were cases of coronavirus in the Indian team, due to which the players refused to take the field. India were ahead 2-1 in the series before the last match was cancelled. India got many positive things from this series. Rohit Sharma told that he can be successful in Tests also on foreign soil. KL Rahul got a chance and he played good innings while performing brilliantly. The way Shardul Thakur performed in the fourth test match gave hope to the team. Thakur showed amazing performance with the bat and not with the ball in the fourth Test. He scored half-centuries in both the innings.
In this series, an important player of India also got back his lost rhythm. The name of this player is Jasprit Bumrah. Before the England series, Bumrah did not perform well in the ICC World Test Championship. Bumrah did not get a single wicket in this important match. But in the series against England, he made a strong comeback and took 18 wickets in four matches. Bumrah also made a great contribution with the bat in the Test match played at Lord’s and took the team out of trouble by sharing an 89-run partnership with Mohammed Shami. Seeing this performance of Bumrah, former India captain Sunil Gavaskar has become his admirer. Gavaskar has praised Bumrih fiercely.
Bumrah is very smart
Gavaskar has said that Bumrah is a very clever bowler. He said, “He is a very clever bowler. He is the kind of player who wants to see himself better today than he was yesterday, be it in bowling or batting. You see how he has implemented himself and when he comes out to bat, how he has scored runs for India. He is also a better fielder. He keeps getting better. He is the kind of player you can count on. You give him the ball in a difficult situation, he will say okay, I will tell by doing this.
do wonders with the white ball too
Gavaskar said, “You see him bowling in limited overs with the white ball. You see how he does in IPL and how he does in 50 overs, there are few masters like this. When the red ball comes after it becomes easy. The seam is tighter and lasts longer, the shine on one side is higher than the white ball, so there are more chances of reverse swing.”
