Jasprit Bumrah, undoubtedly, is one of the most fierce and dangerous bowlers in world cricket at the moment. He has got many options in his armoury to attack with and can trouble the world’s best batsmen incessantly. No doubt he is being praised by the legends of the game at regular intervals.
The former South African legendary pacer – Allan Donald– is the latest one to heap praise on Jasprit Bumrah. Donald has been mighty impressed by the skillsets of the speedster Jasprit Bumrah. The 55-year old labelled Bumrah as “an absolute gun.”
Donald said, “I was watching him bowl the other day. Especially how he delivers the ball after a stuttering run-up and releases the ball is simply crazy. He has got a magnificent wrist turn-over that no one else has presented in the game. It just can’t go wrong for him. His ability to bowl yorkers any time in all formats also stands out. He also knows when to bowl that yorker in Test cricket.“
The Bloemfontein-born feels that Bumrah’s adaptability in any condition is what “stands him out”.
He added, “I was watching him bowl the other day. Especially how he delivers the ball after a stuttering run-up and releases the ball is simply crazy. He has got a magnificent wrist turn-over that no one else has presently in the game. It just can’t go wrong for him.”
“The one who would stand out in terms of all formats is Bumrah. His adaptability to all formats is just crazy and everyone talks about him. He has sublime skills in all formats of the game” he exclaimed.
Allan Donald was himself one of the most ferocious fast bowlers of his era. His impeccable bowling was a treat for the viewers. Him appreciating is surely a big compliment for the ace bowler Jasprit Bumrah.
