Jasprit Bumrah reacts to Shane Bond’s “world’s best death bowler” compliment

Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah has been the chief attacker in his country’s bowling arsenal. Bumrah’s effectiveness in the death overs, especially with his toe crushing yorkers, make him indispensable for the side he plays. Whenever his team wants someone in the death overs, the skipper hands the ball to the 27-year-old.

Recently, Bumrah’s IPL franchise Mumbai Indians (MI) released a video on their Twitter handle where bowling coach Shane Bond can be seen lauding the precocious talent.

During the interview, Bond praised his mentee and hailed him as the world’s best death bowler.

“Jasprit Bumrah is the world’s best death bowler. And I think he will be remembered for that,” Bond stated on Friday.

Bumrah also spoke at length about his experience with Bond and revealed that the former had been a fan of veteran pacer since childhood. Bumrah further added that the ace speedster had taught him quite a few tricks to improve his game.

“I met him for the first time in 2015. As a child, I had seen him bowl and was always fascinated with how he used to bowl for New Zealand and how he used to operate. When I met him over here, it was a good experience. He helped me a lot to open my mind to different things that I could try on the field. That was very good and the relationship has only gotten better each and every year,” the Ahmedabad-born added.

Bumrah also divulged that he takes up the former New Zealand coach’s advice not only during his IPL stint but also when playing for Team India.

“I always try to talk to him, even when I am not here and with the Indian team. It has been a good journey and hopefully every year, I keep learning something new and try to add new things to my bowling. He has played a major role in that. It’s been a great relationship and hopefully, this continues for many years to come,” he concluded.

Prithvi Shaw’s travel to Goa halted by Maharashtra police

After being snubbed from the recently announced 20-man squad for the England tour, Prithvi Shaw had to face another setback as this time he was travelling to Goa without an e-pass.

With the horrendous corona pandemic raving havoc, Maharashtra has imposed lockdown like restrictions and asked the citizens to take a mandatory e-pass from the Government in case they want to leave their homes.

About 39,923 new COVID-19 cases were recorded on Friday, with the death toll rising to 695 for the day.

These unprecedented time made it necessary for the State to take strict measures allowing only essential movement.

Shaw was en route to Goa and stopped by the police administration in the Amboli district. The budding cricketer was stalled for over an hour for failing to apply for the e-pass. Shaw exercised the guidance of the police and requested an e-mandate through his phone.

The authorities immediately issued him one, and the 21-year-old was allowed to continue his journey after receiving the clearance.

Earlier, former Indian cricketer, Akash Chopra had expressed his disappointment on and England Tour.

During an interview with ESPNcricinfo, Chopra suggested that the youngster would have been dismayed at his exclusion since the latter hasn’t received many opportunities after failing to make a mark in the Adelaide Test.

“If I was Prithvi Shaw, I would be slightly surprised and disappointed. I’d actually be thinking ‘you haven’t given me so many opportunities. Since the Adelaide Test when I got out for 0 and 2, I have not played a single Test,” said Chopra.
