Highlights: Bumrah stands tall among legendary bowlers

Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah has enlisted himself among the best bowlers in the world with his unbelievable skills set and unprecedented bowling technique and that too within the initial few years of his career.

Moreover, the way Bumrah has transformed himself into an all formats bowler after starting his career as a T20 specialist is yet another remarkable achievement. He has been the most impressive in Test cricket after making his debut against South Africa last year.

Bumrah stands on the number 2 position in the list of bowlers with most impressive figures after having played 12 Test matches. With 62 wickets at an average of 19.24 and a bowling strike rate of 43.7, Bumrah sits behind West Indian great Andy Roberts who had 68 scalps in the first 12 games of his Test career.

Bumrah shares the number of wickets with Pakistani bowling great Waqar Younis who also had 62 wickets in as many games while he still has better figures than bowlers like Dennis Lillie, Alan Donald, Curtly Ambrose, Wasim Akram, and Glenn McGrath after 12 test matches.
