Chris Gayle picks Jasprit Bumrah as the toughest bowler he faced in the IPL

Meanwhile, the veteran cricketer must have faced top-quality pacers in the Indian Premier League. According to him, Jasprit Bumrah is the toughest bowler that he has ever faced in India’s premier T20 competition.

Jasprit Bumrah is best known for his impeccable bowling potential and has been a top bowler for Team India for a long time now. He is currently out of cricketing action owing to an injury and is expected to be back in action for the sixteenth edition of the IPL.

Bumrah has played 120 games in the IPL and the Mumbai Indians’ paceman has bagged 145 wickets to his name. Notably, he took two four-wicket-hauls and a fifer to his name.

Jasprit Bumrah didn’t play Asia Cup and the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 tournaments. Team India lost both tournaments in a disappointing fashion. The team management wants Bumrah to be back in action soon such that he can be fit and ready going forward into the ICC ODI World Cup 2023.
