#4 Jasprit Bumrah vs Andre Russell

Enter caption

Jasprit Bumrah and Andre Russell have been in a purple patch for a fairly good period of time, making the death overs a nightmare for their respective oppositions. Russell has been unstoppable in the past few months, irrespective of venues, bowlers and situations. Such has been his dominance that even wrist injuries have not impacted his power-hitting, and it is his sheer strength that even a mistimed shot finds its way 10 rows back into the stands. However, if there is someone who can contain Dre Russ, it's certainly Jasprit Bumrah,

Bumrah has been at the top of his class across formats, and is ranked No.1 in ODIs. Be it cutters, bouncers, yorkers or deceptive slower balls, the 25-year old has all the weapons in his arsenal. Above all, his calm and composure at the death is an invaluable asset, which enables him to execute the yorkers to perfection. It would certainly be a visual delight when the master of death bowling and the world's most fearsome hitter lock horns at the biggest stage.
