Jaspreet Bumrah has had sensational outings in the SENA countries. His ability to quickly adjust to tough conditions makes him one of the premier bowlers of India in the world cup. Bumrah’s ability to bowl variations in both slow and fast deliveries makes him one of the most versatile bowlers of the world. His series in South Africa, Australia, and England were a grand success. He took a 5 wicket hauls in the overseas conditions. Let us look at five reasons why Jaspreet Bumrah is one of the most toughest bowlers to face in the 2019 world cup.
Bumrah’s pace variation has been outstanding in all the formats of the game. Even though he is consistent at over 142kmph, he has the ability to mix it up with slower deliveries. He bagged five-wicket haul games in all the tours of India in the last one year to make him the First ever Indian bowler to do so.
The Yorkers of Bumrah are a setup to the bouncers which he uses carefully to remove the bails of the batsmen. His bowling hand position varies more than a lot of other bowlers which makes it difficult to pick Yorkers. Only other bowlers who have bowled more Yorkers than Bumrah are Kagiso Rabada and Jofra Archer. But Bumrah’s Yorker variation stands as a unique asset for team India.
The opening bowling attack of India is formidable with Bumrah and Bhuvi. Although Bumrah hasn’t opened the bowling consistently for Mumbai Indians, the Indian team would be looking for him to get early breakthroughs. His off-cutter deliveries are a nightmare to the batsmen. This makes him equally deadlier when he opens the attack for team India.
Bumrah is known to produce an economy of less than six in the death overs. He does the basics right and hits the deck with variable pace. His understanding of the death situation is mind-boggling. The Indian has been quite successful in defending low totals with the help of Bumrah’s death attack.
