Jasprit Bumrah Biography


Jasprit Bumrah is an Indian fast bowler who is widely regarded as the best death over bowler in the current scenario. He is right hand batsman and right arm fast medium pacer. His variations and ability to deliver accurate yorkers make him one of the most lethal death ball bowlers.


Background


Bumrah was born on 6 December 1993 in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. His family was dealt a cruel blow when his father passed away in 2001.


Jasprit made it to the Gujarat U-19 team and was soon bought by Mumbai Indians from the 2013 players draft. Since then, his career has been on an upsurge. He made his debut for Gujarat senior team in a Ranji match against Vidarbha in 2013.


Debut


Bumrah was not a prolific wicket taker in his early years of the Indian Premier League. But his unorthodox slinging action which troubled the batsmen was the main reason selectors put faith in him.


He was handed his ODI debut against Australia in Sydney in 2016. It was the final match of a disappointing series for India but Bumrah produced a fantastic spell of 10-0-40-2. India had a face saving victory and lost the series 4-1.


His T20 international debut came three days later in the T20 series against Australia. Again he produced amazing figures of 3.3-0-23-3.


Rise to glory


Ever since his debut, Bumrah has been India’s lead bowler in the shorter formats. He rounded up a good start to international cricket with fine performances in the IPL.


In a T20 match against England, India had to defend eight runs in the last over. Bumrah conceded just two runs and became an instant hit. He continued performing well and was the Man of the Series in ODIs when India visited Sri Lanka in 2017. He produced his best ODI figures of 5/27 in the third ODI of the series.


Low points


Bumrah has had a relatively smooth sailing so far. Bumrah has been a consistent performer ever since his debut, although a lacklustre display in the 2016 World T20 can be considered a minor low. In the tournament, Bumrah could pick only 4 wickets in 5 matches.


Club career


Bumrah plays for Mumbai Indians in the IPL. He made his debut in 2013 and developed under the tutelage of Lasith Malinga and bowling coach Shane Bond.


His performances drastically improved in the 2016 and 2017 editions where he took combined 35 wickets in 30 matches.


One of his most memorable bowling performance actually came in a super over against Gujarat Lions. Defending a meagre 11 runs, Bumrah bowled right at the blockholes to give away just six runs and MI won by 5 runs.


Records


Bumrah holds the record of maximum number of wickets taken in a five match bilateral ODI series. He took 15 wickets against Sri Lanka in 2017 to achieve the record.
