“Figures Don’t Look Great…”: RCB Legend On Indian Bowlers vs England And Why Jasprit Bumrah Stands Out

Feb 9, 2024






South African batting great AB de Villiers has praised Jasprit Bumrah for helping India level the five-match series by “outballing” his teammates in the second Test against England in Visakhapatnam. Bumrah's performance in the second Test enabled him to reach the top of the ICC Test rankings for bowlers, becoming the first Indian fast bowler to achieve this feat.

“Bumrah bowls great (Bumrah bowls brilliantly). What an amazing player, Jasprit Bumrah! 9 wickets at an average of 10.11 and other Indian bowlers also took 10 wickets. De Villiers, who has faced Jasprit Bumrah several times while playing for the South African cricket team and Royal Challengers Bangalore, said on his YouTube channel, “Bumrah has done better than his teammates, but I would like to add that he hunts in packs. Were staying.”

“Their (other Indian bowlers') stats don't look good, yes. But they made up for it. It's not an individual game, and that's what I like about this Indian attack.” In the second test, Bumrah performed brilliantly and took nine wickets in two innings. His impeccable yorkers were unplayable.

“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.

“Gil showed incredible character”

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 (Gill) came to Vizag and showed the incredible character that the young player has. What an incredible player!” “I don't know if he's worked on his technique at all or changed anything, but it just shows you the talent he has,” said the South African.

“In the second innings of a big Test match, that was a brilliant century and let me tell you, that was the difference between the two teams,” he said.
