Bangalore: In-form Australian pacer Pat Cummins could not help but praise another fast bowler on the top of his game — Jasprit Bumrah, saying the Indian’s pace and accuracy has made him a serious threat in all three formats.
Bumrah brought India back into the game in the first T20I in Vizag by taking two wickets in the 19th over in which he conceded just two runs. In his comeback game, he showed how invaluable he has become for India in all three formats.
“He is obviously a class act. Two of the basics he does really well is that he bowls fast and he bowls accurately. Anyone who does that in world cricket will pose a real challenge for the batsmen. He has got a great slower ball, seems to have a great cricketing brain, executes his skills really well,” Cummins said.
“He has done really well in all three formats and the one to watch out for,” added the Aussie speedster.
Cummins on the other hand has been Australia’s standout fast bowler over the last 12 months and has even made some useful contributions with the bat, including in the first T20I in which he got a crucial four and a double on the final two balls to pull off a three wicket win for his team.
