Since making his debut for Team India in 2016, Jasprit Bumrah has evolved into a match-winner for the Virat Kohli-led side, across all formats of the game. His stocks are always on the rise.
Jasprit Bumrah is currently the leader of the Indian bowling attack even with the presence of senior cricketers like Mohammed Shami and Ishant Sharma. During a chat with ICC, Bumrah highlighted how he has evolved as a cricketer over the years.
“So basically what I try to do is, I channelize my anger. When I started as a youngster, I used to get angry left, right, and center and I used to do all types of gimmicks which didn’t really help my game a lot,” he said.
“So over the years played a lot of international cricket, released what works for me. So I am smiling but the fire inside is burning all the time. I don’t try to show it all the time but this is the way that helps me to succeed and with that controlled aggression I try to take my game forward,” he concluded.
Team India’s bowling coach, Bharat Arun, who has played a crucial role in nurturing the 27-year-old, feels it is Jasprit Bumrah’s unique bowling action that makes him a special talent.
“The secret behind Jasprit is his uniqueness has been maintained. We have not tried and meddle with his bowling action. Because of his action batsmen pick up a little late that’s what makes him so special,” he stated.
