As India thwarted Pakistan's attempt to chase a modest score of 119 on a challenging pitch in New York during the thrilling T20 World Cup match on Sunday, the cricketing community continues to applaud Jasprit Bumrah's exceptional bowling skills. With his unique short run-up and unconventional style, the Indian fast bowling ace kept the Pakistani batters under pressure, delivering a memorable performance (4-0-14-3) that will be admired for years. Interestingly, it was this same unusual bowling action that led many, including former Pakistani fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar, to doubt Bumrah's future after he sustained a significant back injury. Akhtar commented on Bumrah's injury, highlighting the challenges faced by fast bowlers with front-on actions. However, since his return in August after a year-long recovery, Bumrah has shown no signs of struggle, instead, it's the batsmen who have found it tough against his exceptional skills. The 30-year-old has been equally effective with his yorkers and length balls, maintaining his distinctive bowling action. Since his comeback against Ireland last August, Bumrah has taken 68 wickets in 27 matches across all formats, averaging 16.22. He was also a standout performer in the disappointing 2024 IPL season for Mumbai Indians, finishing third in the highest wicket-takers list with 20 wickets in 13 matches. How has Bumrah managed to silence his critics and remain one of the most feared fast bowlers in the world? Veteran coach Gopal Jasapara and international pace bowler Zahoor Khan shared insights into Bumrah's craft. Jasapara recounted seeing Bumrah during a visit to Ahmedabad, noting his meticulous approach to recovery and fitness. Zahoor, who trained with Bumrah during the UAE-hosted IPL in 2020, praised Bumrah's hard work and resilience, emphasizing his unique bowling style and effectiveness. Both coaches highlighted Bumrah's humility and continuous learning, making him a standout player in the cricketing world.
