Jasprit Bumrah has gotten immense success in a short span of time; with his hard work and exceptional skills, the young gun has made his name into the likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and others. The man has made the pace bowling touch the zenith in the limited over matches.
In the latest interview, the man addressed that Rohit Sharma is the man because of whom his bowling has improved gradually, he said: “He's seen me before I was an India player and he's seeing me now. He's seen phases that I've been through. The thing with Rohit is, he's never been different with me. He used to back me with a lot of space then and he does it now. He'll come, ask me what I see or believe in, set the field accordingly and then keeps backing me up all the time. Some days it works, some days it doesn't but it's always so reassuring.”
Bumrah was also asked about his decent behaviour on the field. He is one of the few players who is never seen getting engaged in sledging or other activities, he told: "That aggression is there, of course. In fact, when I started playing the game, I used to be really assertive, trying to sledge batsmen, giving send-offs. But then, as I continued playing, I realised, all said it wasn't helping me bowl better. I would drift away from my set of plans, not be able to execute in the manner I thought and stuff like that. That's when I began to realise something here wasn't working. I had to channelise that aggression and let it show in my stride and delivery. Just mouthing off would make no sense. Anyway, if the ball is doing the talking, it's enough. I don't need to talk."
Bumrah is expected to make a return against Australia in the limited overs series starting February 24.
