Former Aussie star Brett Lee, who is known for giving nightmares to the batsmen with his fiery pace seemed mighty impressed with the Indian seamer. Lee believes if Bumrah can add more pace to his bowling if he can make his bowling action more effective. 

“The current Indian pace attack is very, very good, led by Jasprit Bumrah. He is the guy who can also increase his pace. A few little things…you know he is working on with his action, with shooing with that arm pulling down harder and pulling out straighter.
