Former India player turned veteran commentator Aakash Chopra has said that Jasprit Bumrah never allows the batters to play against him. The right-arm pacer registered figures of 3/7 in four overs in India’s 47-run win in their 2024 T20 World Cup Super 8 clash against Afghanistan. India set an 182-run target after opting to bat first in Bridgetown, Barbados, on Thursday, June 20 as well. Meanwhile, Bumrah’s spell helped the Indian team restrict the opponent for 134 to register a convincing win.

While talking about India’s bowling in a video shared on his YouTube channel, Chopra said, “India reached 181/8 and after that, it was India’s glory because Jasprit Bumrah was there. No one can get the better of him. Both openers were dismissed. First Rahmanullah Gurbaz was cleaned up and then Hazratullah Zazai. He got one caught behind and the other with a slower one. Axar Patel dismissed Ibrahim Zadran, who was trying to bat a little. Everyone had wickets in their accounts. Azmatullah Omarzai, Gulbadin Naib and Mohammad Nabi stayed in the middle for a little while but no one batted so well that it would cause anyone trouble.”

While talking about Axar Patel removing Ibrahim Zadran, the former India opener added that none of the Afghanistan batters put up
much resistance.

“Jasprit Bumrah picked up three wickets. Boom Boom was absolutely outstanding. He conceded only seven runs in four overs while taking those three wickets. He is a different-level guy. Arshdeep Singh once again got hit a little, he gave away 36 runs in four overs, but he also picked up three wickets. He caught the tail. Someone catches the top and someone catches the tail. Kuldeep Yadav picked up two wickets in the middle, one Axar and one Ravindra Jadeja. It was overall a convincing win for India. These are not just points, this 47-run win has helped the net run rate,” Aakash Chopra concluded.
