Dilhara Fernando on Jasprit Bumrah
“Bumrah is just amazing. If you look at India’s performance in the last five years, Bumrah has played a very big role. He has been leading the pace attack really well. He is a game-changer. I am not sure about his injury updates, but he will be a key player for India in the World Cup. Rohit will need him in the World Cup. India and Rohit will really need him in the World Cup,”
“Bumrah in Indian conditions is at another level. He is a nightmare for the opposition. India’s pace attack looks good, and India are top contenders at the World Cup,”
Dilhara Fernando further added that
“Bumrah and Rohit know each other closely and have good camaraderie so Rohit would want Bumrah badly in the World Cup. IPL and Mumbai Indians have played a big role in Bumrah’s career. Rohit and Bumrah have a good mutual understanding, especially in tough conditions. Bumrah will be key for India and Rohit,”
The Indian Fast Bowler lastly played a cricket match was back in 2022. In the month of September 22 Bumrah played a match.
