Latest Cricket News: It makes for intriguing reading when one genius compliments another. Allan Donald, one of the game’s best pacers, experienced something similar. The ‘White Lightning,’ a former South African fast bowler, has heaped accolades on one of India’s and possibly the world’s best fast bowlers.
There has been no shortage of accolades for India’s world-class fast-bowling lineup. And it’s India’s great pacer Jasprit Bumrah, who has bowled Donald, who takes the prize this time. He considers Bumrah to be one of the best two pacers in the world right now, describing the 28-year-old as a fantastic all-around performer.
“(Kagiso) Rabada and Bumrah are two players I would maintain at the top in all formats. Bumrah, on the other hand, would stand out in all formats. His ability to adapt to any format is incredible, and everyone is talking about him. In all formats of the game, he is a master “The Telegraph reported on Donald’s comments.
“The other day, I was watching him bowl. It’s particularly insane how he delivers the ball after a slow run-up and unleashes the ball. He possesses a fantastic wrist turn-over that no one else has in the game right now. For him, nothing can possibly go wrong.”
During his playing days, Donald would occasionally rattle a few batters. Donald would not give up, whether he was in a toe-crushing yorker or a rib-threatening bouncer. Bumrah, whom he describes as the maestro of the yorker, possesses similar characteristics. Bumrah, whom Donald describes as a “gun bowler,” is a sure-shot inclusion in Donald’s XI in all three formats.
“In all formats, his ability to bowl yorkers at any time stands out. In Test cricket, he also knows when to bowl the yorker. In all media, he’s an absolute beast for me.” I’ve never seen such tenacity in a young fast bowler.
