Right-arm fast Bowler
Jasprit Bumrah adds to Indian cricket's never-ending legacy of producing genuine quality fast bowlers. From Kapil Dev to Javagal Srinath to Zaheer Khan… and now finally Bumrah. With his unorthodox action, a bag full of tricks and just sheer genius, Bumrah stands head and shoulders above his peers. Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Trent Boult, Kagiso Rabada, Shaheen Afridi… they're all good, but pale in comparison to the consistency, effectiveness, and wicket-taking prowess as Bumrah.

For a significant duration, Sachin Tendulkar set the standard, followed by Virat Kohli, showcasing that Indians can excel as the best batsmen globally. Now, Bumrah has added to this narrative by demonstrating India's prowess in fast bowling on the world stage. Despite being sidelined for a year due to a fractured back that required surgery and months of intense rehabilitation, Bumrah defied doubts about his effectiveness. He emerged stronger than ever, reaching the peak of his performance and rightfully claiming the top spot in the ICC rankings, the first time an Indian fast bowler has achieved such a feat.

As to how it all began, Bumrah's journey to becoming one of India's premier fast bowlers kickstarted in the Indian Premier League. Playing for Mumbai Indians, his unique bowling action and exceptional yorker control turned heads. He impressed in his debut season, leading Gujarat to a Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy title with a Man of the Match performance. Bumrah's unorthodox style and pinpoint accuracy didn't go unnoticed. After a successful IPL season, MI secured him for a significant sum, solidifying his talent. His rise continued as he received his maiden T20I call-up in 2016 for the tour of Australia.

Capitalising on an injury to Mohammed Shami, Bumrah earned his ODI debut in Sydney. He impressed with his skills, leading him to a spot in the T20I squad. His six wickets in the series whitewash against Australia further cemented his place. This stellar performance catapulted him to the number two ranking in T20I bowling. Bumrah continued his meteoric rise, playing a pivotal role in the 2016 Asia Cup and T20 World Cup. His exceptional death-over control earned him the trust of the selectors for the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy. While a minor setback occurred with a no-ball against Pakistan, Bumrah displayed remarkable resilience.

Bumrah established himself as Virat Kohli's go-to bowler in limited-overs cricket, eventually transitioning to Tests as well. On his Test debut tour of South Africa, he silenced doubts about his ability in the longer format with a five-wicket haul. The 2019 World Cup cemented Bumrah's status as a global force. He emerged as the tournament's leading wicket-taker for India with 18 scalps at a miserly economy of 4.41. His lethal yorkers not only brought wickets but also caused an injury to teammate Vijay Shankar during practice.

Continuing his impressive run, Bumrah etched his name in history during the 2019 World Test Championship match against West Indies. He became only the third Indian fast bowler to claim a Test hat-trick. But that was just the beginning. Over the next four years, Bumrah proved he is as good overseas as he is at home. Returning to top-flight cricket after a long gap, that forced him to miss the 2022 T20 World Cup, Bumrah put on a mighty fine performance at the 2023 World Cup picking up 20 wickets – the fourth highest of the tournament.
