KINGSTON – India captain Virat Kohli has declared Jasprit Bumrah as “the most complete bowler in world cricket” after the quick's stellar performance in their 2-0 series sweep against West Indies.
Set an improbable target of 468 late on day three, West Indies lost their final six wickets for 51 runs and were bowled out of 210 to hand India a 257-run win in the second test at Sabina Park on Monday.
Bumrah finished as the leading wicket-taker in the series with 13 dismissals at an exceptional average of 9.23, which follows his impressive performance at this year's World Cup.
“There is not much you can say about Jasprit, the way he has been bowling,” Kohli told a news conference. “All we can say is we are really lucky to have him on our team.
“He confuses you with angles, with swing, he'll set up for the outswinger, then bowl the inswinger, and it's coming at pace, and then he can hit you with bouncers as well. So, I think he is the most complete bowler in world cricket right now.”
