Former Indian Pacer Showers Jasprit Bumrah With Paise For His Unbelievable Spell Against Afghanistan- “He is Like The Reserve Bank of India”

Jasprit Bumrah

In a thrilling encounter during the 2024 T20 World Cup Super 8 clash between India and Afghanistan, Jasprit Bumrah showcased his brilliance. India chose to bat first and after a shaky start, they managed to put up a decent score of 181. Bumrah went all guns blazing and pocketed the match for India by clinching 3 wickets and giving away just 7 runs in his four overs.

His performance left former cricketer Irfan Pathan drawing an interesting analogy while reviewing the game on Star Sports.

“He is like the Reserve Bank of India. He is absolutely safe. You expect him to perform when he bowls four overs in any situation. He sets up the game. How does he do that? Twelve runs had come in the first over bowled by Arshdeep (Singh), which means Afghanistan had got the momentum,” he said.

Jasprit Bumrah’s Reliability and Consistency

Just as the Reserve Bank of India is a pillar of stability in the financial system, Bumrah provides unwavering reliability for the Indian cricket team. Whether defending a modest total or setting up a chase, you can count on him. His economy rate, wicket-taking ability, and adaptability across formats make him indispensable.

Pathan rightly points out that Bumrah sets the bowling tone. When the opposition gains momentum, Bumrah steps in to halt their progress. His variations—slower balls, yorkers, and well-directed bouncers—keep batsmen guessing. No wonder he’s the top-most asset in Indian bowling.

The Death Overs Specialist

As the T20 World Cup progresses, Bumrah’s role becomes even more critical. Expect him to excel in the death overs, where his mastery of reverse swing could prove decisive. Dry ball or not, Bumrah remains unfazed, much like the Reserve Bank’s resilience during economic fluctuations.

While Bumrah takes center stage, let’s not forget Arshdeep Singh’s contribution. His potent spell (3/36) complemented Bumrah’s brilliance. Together, they form a formidable bowling duo.
