Legendary pacer Wasim Akram regarding Bumrah, January 2019
Jasprit Bumrah famous for his unorthodox action and his knack to bowl perfect yorkers at the right time and perform well in the death overs. He has a jarring action and coupled with natural pace, and a weird release point of his deliveries makes it hard for the batsmen to pick him up early.
“I think Jasprit Bumrah is very, very interesting. He runs off a very short run-up. He jogs and then bowls with a very short run. He has got straight arms. His bowling is not textbook by any means, but it works. He is very different from other pace bowlers, which reminds me of another fast bowler of my era, who was very different from everyone else – Jeff Thomson”

Bumrah is considered one of the fastest Indian bowlers India ever produced, He is leading the Indian pace attack which never looked so devastating in past ever
“My all-time favourite bowlers are Mitchell Johnson, Wasim Akram and Brett Lee. I used to watch their videos and learn from them. I have learnt a lot from Johnson, and Malinga too. I try to learn from any senior bowlers who have played international cricket.” – Bumrah
