Recently, the experienced and former player in the Indian Cricket team Ashish Nehra has given his opinion about Bumrah. He said that Jasprit Bumrah has impressed him a lot. But there are other bowlers across the globe who are may not be so better than him but are equal in matching up the strength and potential as per their age. At the age of 28, all are doing a great job and taking efforts at the same level.
We have seen that Jasprit has shown a glimpse of his brilliant game in the third test match between India and South Africa. His five-wicket haul in Cape Town really impressed everyone around the world who admire him as their favorite one.
Nehra mentioned the name of Mohammad Shami who has done extremely well in the series and has given some remarkable performances earlier. The difference is only that Bumrah became the start player on the decider match of the series.
Further, he said,
“Jasprit Bumrah has impressed a lot. There is no doubt but I would still say that in world cricket, there are certain equally good bowlers. One of them is his teammate, Mohammed Shami. I don’t know the exact stats but one thing is for sure, that if you ask me to pick one bowler bowlers between the two, I still can’t say it’ll be Bumrah with my eyes closed,”
“Because if you leave aside the five wickets, the way Shami’s game was unfolding was terrific. Shami has the qualities to get a set batsman out on any surface. He isn’t far behind Bumrah in any aspect.” Nehra added.
Nehra continued his talk and said, “Again, I’m not going on stats, there is one more bowler who is currently injured. If you speak of skills, and if he is in rhythm, it’s Jofra Archer. His skills too are second to none. But yes, coming back to Bumrah, if you talk about top bowlers, even if you are to trim the list, Bumrah’s name will be there.”
