There is no one like ‘Jassi’, extremely lethal and economical, never giving away more than 50 runs in his entire T20I career.

New Delhi. The T20 World Cup 2024 has yet to reach the heights expected due to the ‘substandard’ pitches of America and West Indies. The pitches in this season of the tournament have so far proved problematic for the batsmen, calling them ‘bowler friendly’ might not be the right word as the ‘uneven bounce’ and making it very difficult to score runs. Not only the ‘double pace’ of most of the wickets, batsmen are also getting injured on the New York wicket. The batsmen’s struggle for runs is such that only one team – Australia – has managed to score more than 200 runs in the 20 matches played so far. The much-awaited ‘Grand Match’ between arch-rivals India and Pakistan (India Vs. Pakistan) on Sunday also did not give full enjoyment of the game due to the lack of bad wickets, but the way Team India defended the score of 119 runs certainly gave Indian fans joy. is

Jasprit Bumrah was the hero of the win
Of course, Rishabh Pant scored 42 runs off 31 balls with six fours on a tough wicket, but if there was one hero in India’s victory, it was Jasprit Bumrah who scored four runs in the 14th over after dismissing Pakistan’s trouble-shooter Rizwan to send the Indian camp into the match. Asha was sparked, going strong towards the target after scoring 80 runs for the loss of the wicket. Did him a favor by dismissing the dangerous Iftikhar Ahmed – at the same time, he was as economical as ever, putting Pakistan’s batsmen under pressure and Arshdeep Singh losing wickets. The hand bowler also took the wicket of Imad Wasim for 11 runs and Pakistan’s progress was halted at 113 for 7 in the 20th over. Over

The 19th over of the innings bowled by Bumrah can be considered the ‘turning point’ of the match. After 18 overs, Pakistan needed 21 runs to win with 5 wickets to spare but Bumrah became the batsmen’s first wicket in this over. Only 3 runs were scored in this over and Iftikhar’s wicket also fell. In his spell of 4 overs, Bumrah took 3 wickets for just 14 runs and became the ‘Player of the Match’ for the second consecutive time before he bowled Rizwan for just 3 runs in the 15th and third overs of the innings. Why is Bumrah currently considered the best bowler in all three formats in these two overs? He kept the ball wicket-to-wicket and did not allow the opposition batsmen to open their arms through changes and variations of pace.

Very dangerous and economical too

Besides being accurate, wicket-taking has always been the ‘USP’ of Bumrah’s bowling. Seasoned bowlers can sometimes prove expensive in T20 format cricket, but this master of fast bowling has never conceded more than 50 runs in his 64 T20 career so far. In his T20I career, he has conceded more than 40 runs only 5 times so far, in August 2022, in Hyderabad, he conceded 50 runs in four overs without taking a wicket, his worst analysis. 79 wickets in 64 T20Is at an average of 18.67 and an economy of 6.44 prove that he is India’s fast bowling superstar.
