Pat Cummins has heaped praise on Jasprit Bumrah, stating that he is a class act across formats and his pace and accuracy has made him one of the best bowlers in international cricket at the moment.
The Indian pacer was on-song in the first T20 against Australia. He picked up three wickets in the game and his last over almost led India to win before Umesh Yadav’s expensive 20th over spoiled Bumrah’s hardwork.
“He is obviously a class act. Two of the basics he does really well is that he bowls fast and he bowls accurately. Anyone who does that in world cricket will pose a real challenge for the batsmen. He has got a great slower ball, seems to have a great cricketing brain, executes his skills really well,” Cummins said.
“He has done really well in all three formats and the one to watch out for, added the Aussie speedster ahead of the second and final T20 here Wednesday.
Pat Cummins was Australia’s top performer in the Test series against India before raking in another exceptional performance against Sri Lanka.
“I haven’t seen too many memes (of myself on social media) but really happy with how my game is going at the moment. So many things have fallen into place. Playing quite consistent cricket has helped,” Cummins said.
