Jasprit Bumrah is considered one of the leading fast bowlers around the world and is known for his fiery bowling spells. His perfect yorkers often catch the attention of the entire cricketing community.

From a young age, Jasprit was showing a high interest in cricket. In early 2008, when Bumrah was only 14 years old, he decided to pursue cricket as a career. He started playing for his school in Ahmedabad and soon his name became well-known, bringing fear into the local domestic circuit due to his unorthodox action.

India had historically struggled to produce quality fast bowlers, therefore, when Jasprit Bumrah decided to knock the door leading to the world of domestic cricket, he was welcomed with open hands. He made his domestic debut in the 2012 – 2013 season while playing for Baroda in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. His bowling action was truly demolishing with many batsmen finding it impossible to understand. Bumrah won the Man of the Match in his first domestic game. It was in this season when former Indian coach John Wright noticed the qualities of the promising player and brought him to Mumbai Indians in IPL.

His bowling action made several experts draw parallels with then star bowler of Mumbai Indians Lasith Malinga. An ability to bowl accurate yorkers the two shared made the word spread. Jasprit Bumrah made his IPL debut against Royal Challengers Bangalore, led by Virat Kohli. Jasprit took three wickets in the game and became the second bowler to take three wickets in his debut IPL game.

He impressed the management with his performances and was retained for the next season as well. Mumbai Indians bought him for a whopping INR 1.2 crore in the IPL auctions, which was a significant sum for a player yet to make his international debut.

2013 proved special for Bumrah in other ways as well. Many analysts doubted his abilities in red-ball cricket. However, with his Ranji debut in 2013, he made all his critics go silent after his brilliant performance. He became the best wicket-taker of the domestic season in 2013.

His consistent bowling performances in IPL and domestic circuit forced Indian selectors to consider him for the national team. He was invited to play for India during the 2016 tour of Australia. The series proved to be a launching pad for Bumrah.

T20I Career

Jasprit Bumrah started his career in the second T20I against Australia in Melbourne. The right-hander started his career with the audience’s high expectations for him. After a little of hesitation, Bumrah proved his worth in the game when he dismissed John Hastings and Andrew Tye in the last over of the innings. His accurate yorkers once again stole the limelight and he was soon called the ‘Yorker King’ by various media. The year turned out to be a dream year for Bumrah, who made his mark at the international level. He ended the year as the top wicket-taker in the world, having taken 28 wickets in his debut season.

ODI Career

Jasprit Bumrah made his One Day International debut during the same tour. He was part of the Indian team for the final match of the five-game series in Sydney. His first ODI wicket was Steve Smith. Bumrah again proved his mettle and ended the game with 2/40 – best figures for India team in the match.

Bumrah’s name was in all headlines later in the year. While playing against Sri Lanka, he took 15 wickets in the series and broke the record of the biggest number of wickets taken by a pacer in a five or less game bilateral series.

His no-ball against Pakistan in the 2017 Champions League final proved to be the worst performance of his young career.

Test Career

Even though Jasprit Bumrah was performing with the utmost perfection in limited over cricket, he had his doubters in red-ball cricket. Bumrah made his Test debut in November 2017. His first test wicket was no one else but world-famous Mr. 360, AB De Villiers. In the third match of the series, Bumrah took his maiden 5-wicket haul and played a central role in the series.

However, his moment of fame came against Australia in 2018. Bumrah established himself as an undisputed leader of Indian bowling and played a major role in a historic series victory for India. He became the first Asian bowler to take a five-wicket haul in Australia, South Africa, and England in the same calendar year in 2018.

Jasprit Bumrah has since then established himself as one of the best bowlers in all formats of the game and is a feared opponent for most of the batsmen.
