MS Dhoni called him the ‘find of the tour’ after the bilateral T20I series against Australia that India won 3-0. For long, India had struggled to find a bowler who could be effective in the death overs. Dhoni's long search finally ended when Bumrah answered his calls with his ability to bowl yorkers. While the yorker is his most potent weapon, Bumrah's unorthodox action makes it very difficult for batsmen to read him. If the IPL is all about spotting Indian talent and giving them the platform, the credit for Bumrah's rapid rise must go to Mumbai Indians. It was John Wright, who spotted him in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and drafted him into the squad. Bumrah has shown improvement in every edition and the presence of Lasith Malinga has been an added advantage. The Sri Lankan star has backed his strength and boosted his confidence. The master of yorkers has passed on his experience and the young Bumrah has benefited immensely.
