Team India fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has come up the stairs in a very small time since he bursts onto international cricket. As India gear up to face Australia, former Aussie fast bowler Jason Gillespie has showered heaps of praise saying Bumrah will finish as one of the greats in the history.
Meanwhile, Virat Kohli & Co will highly depend on Bumrah in the upcoming three series and the pacer will have to deliver the goods if India can continue their performance from the last time they toured in 2018-19. Jasprit Bumrah is a part of the pace attack that includes players like Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Navdeep Saini, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Umesh Yadav, and Mohammed Siraj that have made it to the Australian tour across three squads.
Jasprit Bumrah will finish as the best – Jason Gillespie
Jason Gillespie highlighted that India’s fast-bowling attack has developed into one of the best today and all operate differently. Without disrespecting their previous bowling attack, Gillespie said the same and mainly backed Jasprit Bumrah to go down as one of the country’s greatest cricketers.
“They all bring their different ways of doing it (bowling fast). I think the Indian pace attack now is as good as they’ve had in a long time. That’s no disrespect to the guys who came before them. But they are a fine bunch now. (Jasprit) Bumrah is going to be a superstar once his career finishes. He will go down as one of India’s greatest in all three forms of the game. There’s no doubt about that,” Jason Gillespie stated as quoted by Hindustan Times.
Furthermore, Jason Gillespie applauded the likes of Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav. The Sussex head coach said that Shami and Ishant Sharma has been equally brilliant while Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Umesh Yadav have added more zeal to the pace attack.
“(Mohammed) Shami has been excellent. Ishant Sharma has shown what an adaptable player he is. He has had a few ups and downs but has shown real resilience. He is always trying to better himself. India should be proud of how he has stuck to his task and found ways to reinvent himself. And then you’ve got other guys like Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Bhuvi is injured at the moment. Hopefully, he will be fit soon. Umesh Yadav has added a yard of pace, hasn’t he,” he added.
