New Delhi: “boomrah fantastic Bowls,” said the former South African captain AB de Villiers He praised India's leading fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah After his excellent bowling performance in the second test against England in Vizag.
Bumrah, who took nine wickets in both innings of the second Test on Wednesday, became the first Indian fast bowler to achieve the No. 1 spot in the ICC Test bowlers' rankings.

De Villiers said in his YouTube channel, “Bumrah bowls brilliantly. What a bowler, Jasprit Bumrah! He outshone other Indian bowlers, but I think others took their turns, and it was like hunting in a pack. “

Bumrah was in brilliant form in the second Test, producing his career-best figures of 6 for 45 on Indian soil and his impeccable yorkers were impossible to play.
“That (yorker) is definitely his (Bumrah's) weapon in all the formats in which he plays. Playing against him, I would always think of the yorker as his stock threat or main threat. Even in Tests Even in IPL, he takes a lot of wickets.” That,” de Villiers said.

Although Bumrah received the Man of the Match award, major credit should also go to young opener Shubman Gill, whose inning of 104 runs in the second innings was crucial in India's 106-run victory.
He said, “He (Gill) came to Vizag and showed the incredible character that that young player has. What an incredible player!”
