An ex-captain from Pakistan discusses the similarities between Jasprit Bumrah and Shaheen Afridi.
Salman Butt claimed that while Pakistani bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi, 22, is still learning the game and has less experience than Bumrah, he will only grow better.
As India bowled out England for a pitiful total of 110, star Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah recorded his career-best ODI stats. India then chased down the mark with all 10 of its wickets remaining. Bumrah finished with figures of six for 19 in 7.2 overs after dismissing four England hitters for a duck. Following his performance in the first ODI, a number of commentators and former cricketers have claimed that Bumrah is currently the finest bowler across all forms, surpassing players like Trent Boult and Shaheen Afridi. Salman Butt, a former captain of Pakistan, believes that Shaheen isn’t far behind Bumrah in terms of his ability to take wickets.
The Pakistani pacer, Bumrah, has already played a significant amount of cricket. Is still learning the ropes, according to Butt, who also added that Shaheen will only get better.
“Shaheen hasn’t had a lot of playing time yet, but he is not far behind. In actuality, he will only get better with time. He offers a distinct angle and moves at a faster speed. Both of them are top-tier cricket bowlers. It’s entertaining to watch Bumrah and Shaheen bowl. When they bowl with the new ball, which is unusual for many bowlers, you get the impression that the wicket could fall at any moment. However, it is difficult for a 22-year-old man to regularly perform at this level. There shouldn’t, therefore, be any parallels at this time “In a video that was posted on the Youtube channel.
Bumrah moved up three spots to overtake Boult at the top of the ICC ODI bowling rankings.
Josh Hazlewood of Australia is fourth on the list, right after Shaheen, who is third.
