"The deliveries tail in late, so you don't get the time"- Navjot Singh Sidhu compares Jasprit Bumrah with Waqar Younis and Wasim Akram

Former Indian cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu heaped praise on Jasprit Bumrah after his Player of the Match performance in the World Cup match against Ireland. He compared Bumrah with legendary pacers Waqar Younis and Wasim Akram and felt the trio troubled the batters with similar weapons. Sidhu said on Star Sports:

"Waqar Younis, Wasim Akram and Jasprit Bumrah don't need any conditions. They are quick in the air, know how to bowl yorkers and slower ones, and their deliveries swing late. It seems like someone has climbed on you. The deliveries tail in late, so you don't get the time."

On what makes Bumrah special among his peers, Sidhu continued:

"Even when the batter tries to play the hook shot, it hits the sticker. So Jasprit Bumrah is a rare jewel. He has all the skills and is a complete bowler. Bowling yorkers with the new ball is a very big skill and I feel he is the most complete bowler among all bowlers who have come in Indian cricket."
