Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah has become the best limited overs bowler in the world after spending a couple of years under the wings of legendary Sri Lankan pacer Lasith Malinga as they both represented the Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Malinga believes that the young Indian pacer could become an even better bowler if he could master the art of handling pressure situations and extracting wickets at will. He said that having such qualities would surely make Bumrah a completely devastating bowler who would dominate world cricket for years.
“He learned everything quickly — be it the slower ball, in-swinger or out-swinger. He has that confidence and that’s why he is No. 1 now. I don’t think he has any pressure. That’s why he can deliver six yorkers and one slow ball at ease. I hope in the next one year he improves on how to analyse a game. Then, nobody can beat him. Trust me on that," he said.
Bumrah had an outstanding World Cup for India this year as he played a vital role in taking the blue shirts to the semifinals of the highly competitive tournament.
