Ace bowler Wasim Akram is all praise for Jasprit Bumrah’s ability to bowl the “most effective yorker” currently in world cricket. “Jasprit Bumrah has the best and the most effective yorker among fast bowlers playing international cricket now,” Akram told leading news agency during an interaction.
Bumrah, who played a pivotal role in India’s maiden Test series win on Australian soil, has been an ‘x’ factor in Virat Kohli’s set-up.”Bumrah has an exceptional action, very different from other fast bowlers and yet he gets the ball to swing and also move off the deck at good pace,” Akram said.
“But what makes Bumrah special is his ability to bowl yorkers on a regular basis. Also yorker is not just used for ODIs but for Test matches too as me and Waqar did in our times,” the Sultan of Swing said.”When you play gully cricket with buildings on both sides and the batsman being deprived of playing cross batted shots on both sides, they are forced to play straight then.
