Jaspreet Bumrah Rohit Sharma

Indian skipper Rohit Sharma was effusive in his praise for pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah after their nail-biting win against arch-rivals Pakistan in the ongoing T20 World Cup. Bumrah’s exceptional bowling display, which included figures of 3/14 in four overs, proved pivotal in India’s defense of a below-par 119 runs.

Following a shaky batting performance by India, the bowlers had their backs against the wall. However, Bumrah rose to the occasion, dismantling Pakistan’s batting line-up. He dismissed key batsmen Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, and Iftikhar Ahmed, effectively curbing Pakistan’s chase. Notably, Bumrah bowled a staggering 15 dot balls in his spell, conceding very few runs and applying immense pressure.

In the post-match presentation, Rohit Sharma showered praise on Bumrah, calling him a “genius with the ball.” He acknowledged Bumrah’s consistent growth and his crucial role in the team’s success. “He is going from strength to strength,” Sharma said. “We all know what he can do. Not going to talk too much about him. We want him to be in that kind of mindset throughout the World Cup. He’s a genius with the ball, we know that, but hats off to the other guys as well.”

While Bumrah stole the show, Rohit Sharma didn’t shy away from crediting the entire bowling unit for their collective effort. He emphasized the importance of every player contributing in a high-pressure tournament like the World Cup.

India’s win against Pakistan keeps them undefeated in the tournament so far. With Bumrah in top form and the team brimming with confidence, they will be eyeing a strong performance in their upcoming matches.
