Jasprit Bumrah Is The Best Death Bowler Going Around – Ross Taylor
New Zealand’s veteran batsman Ross Taylor was full of praise for India’s gun paceman Jasprit Bumrah. Taylor said Bumrah is the best death bowler going around in world cricket. Bumrah was once again right on the money in the first T20I against New Zealand as he conceded only 31 runs in his quota of four overs and scalped one wicket.
Thus, Bumrah conceded his runs at an economy of 7.75 as he hardly gave an inch to the Kiwis batsmen. The ace pacer was at his best in the fag end of the innings as he leaked only 16 runs in his final two overs and also provided the breakthrough.
Bumrah is mostly right on the money.
In fact, New Zealand looked set to get past 220 at one stage but it was Bumrah’s spell that kept the target in check. The talisman was once again able to deliver the goods.
Bumrah keeps mixing it up, yorkers, slower ones, bouncers, bodyline, he has got it all under his quiver and also the guile to know which arrow to take out at which time. Hence, Bumrah is the most successful bowler in the world as he breathes down the neck of the opposition.
“He has been a class bowler for a long time, he is the best death bowler going around. He has got that extra pace and then he can bowl a good slower ball. We need to learn quickly,” Taylor told reporters.
On the other hand, Ross Taylor was also at his best as he scored three fours and as many sixes in his knock of 54 runs. New Zealand was able to post a stiff total of 203 runs and it was never going to be an easy chase especially after Rohit Sharma was dismissed cheaply.
Subsequently, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli added 99 runs for the second wicket alliance that laid down the foundation of the run chase. Rahul scored 56 whereas Kohli scored 45 and when both of them were dismissed, India’s chase looked in trouble. However, Shreyas Iyer played a fine knock of 58 runs off 29 balls to get India over the line.
The second T20I will take place at the same venue in Eden Park, Auckland on 26th January.
