Former India player Sunil Gavaskar has heaped massive praise on the 28-year old fast bowler while hailing the current T20 squad. Gavaskar’s comments came after India’s 3-0 win over West Indies at the Eden Gardens.
Bumrah wasn’t a part of the T20I series as he was rested owing to workload management. In his conversation with Star Sports, Sunil also praised Deepak Chahar for his ability to swing the ball both ways.
“There is Jasprit Bumrah. He can play for any team in the world and not just India. Then you have Mohammed Siraj and Mohammed Shami,” he said.
“Deepak Chahar is a terrific bowler as he can swing the ball both ways. He is genuine wicket-taker and has been impressive for the Indian team,” he added.
