Following India's thwarting of Pakistan's attempt to chase a modest 119 on a challenging wicket in New York during the thrilling T20 World Cup match on Sunday, the cricketing community is abuzz with praise for Jasprit Bumrah's exceptional bowling skills. Despite his short run-up and unconventional style, the Indian fast bowling ace managed to tightly control the Pakistani batsmen, delivering a memorable performance (4-0-14-3) that will be admired for years. Interestingly, it was Bumrah's unique bowling action that led many, including former Pakistani fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar, to doubt his longevity after 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 injury hiatus, Bumrah has shown no signs of struggle, leaving batsmen, including those from Pakistan on Sunday, grappling with his exceptional skill. The 30-year-old continues to bowl yorkers and length balls with undiminished effectiveness, maintaining his distinctive bowling action. Since his comeback during a bilateral series against Ireland last August, Bumrah has taken 68 wickets in 27 matches (average 16.22) across all formats. He was also a standout performer in the disappointing 2024 IPL season for Mumbai Indians, securing 20 wickets in 13 matches and finishing third in the highest wicket-takers list. How has Bumrah managed to silence his critics and continue as one of the world's most feared fast bowlers? Veteran coach Gopal Jasapara and international pace bowler Zahoor Khan shared insights into Bumrah's mastery. Jasapara recounted seeing Bumrah diligently working on his fitness during a visit to the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, emphasizing Bumrah's careful approach to recovery and cricket management. Zahoor Khan, who trained with Bumrah during the UAE-hosted IPL in 2020, praised Bumrah's hard work and mental strength in overcoming his back injury. Both experts highlighted Bumrah's unique bowling style and his continuous efforts to improve, making him an invaluable asset to the Indian team.
