Yes, you have heard right….Jasprit Bumrah is now ODI top bowler according to the ICC. When I saw his bowling first I did not though for a while that he will go this long way. He is just amazing in his work. I have seen while playing against Bangladesh and other countries. A player should look like he is making huge concentration in his career and bumrah is one of them. As I have written about Babar Azam, Virat earlier I must say Jasprit Bumrah will be a legend at the end of his career for sure. I have seen the Indian bowling lineups and the duo of javagal Srinath and Venkatesh Prashad. I have seen them bowling with great accuracy and pace. But after their retirement, India was searching for the best bowler who can replace them easily and I must tell you that Jasprit Bumrah is that bowler they wanted.
A Glimpse of His Career So Far
Jasprit Bumrah has born in 6th December 1993 in Ahmedabad, India. He is one of the bowlers who can bow with the speed of 140-145km/h consistently. He can bowl dangerously. You might have seen him bowling in this world cup where he has just dominated highly. Even the last three wickets against Bangladesh when Bangladeshi were trying their best to win the match was just fantastic. His bowling is like “ you miss I hit”. If you look at his Domestic league career you can see that he is playing for Mumbai Indians these days. And he is one of the backbones of Mumbai Indians bowling lineups. India was searching for death over the bowler and suddenly Bumrah just came and proved himself as the best one.
So Jasprit Bumrah has just started his career in international cricket and this was his 1st world cup in 2019. I am writing this article in 2019 September and till now he has achieved lots of records.

And if you look at his best test bowling he has taken 9 wickets in a single test match within 2 innings. The strike rate in test matches is 14.88 runs only. I can say that he is going towards huge records. Now let’s have a look at his one-day bowling so far. He has played 58 one day international matches and taken 103 wickets so far and this huge. If you ask me what is his best bowling in a single inning I will say that he has taken 5 wickets haul at that match and his figure was 5/27 runs. His economy rate was 4.49 runs and he has taken 5 wicket haul once in his career so far. Jasprit Bumrah is now one of the best ODI bowlers even he is ranked 1 in ODI bowler ranking
