The Men in Blue finished on the top of the points table and lost just one game against hosts in their league matches. The team showcased excellent balance in their bowling attack and were able to restrict some of the greatest names in cricket to a low total.

Former Indian cricketer, Krishnamachari Srikkanth wrote in his column for ICC that looking ahead in the semi-finals, Jasprit Bumrah is going to be a key man for Virat Kohli. He also said that India is lucky to have someone with the ability to take wickets with the new ball, come back later to break a partnership if needed and to restrict at the death. “From a bowling perspective, it was all about Jasprit Bumrah again. He really is the leader of the Indian attack,” Srikkanth added.

India’s Jasprit Bumrah is currently the third highest wicket-taker in the tournament so far and has managed to claim 17 wickets for the Men in Blue. According to the former cricketer, Jasprit Bumrah is the main weapon and can do everything. “He takes wicket, he can put on the brakes when the opposition are getting on top, he can do everything,” said Srikkanth.

He also added that they saw it against England, when they were cutting loose and they once against saw it against Sri Lanka, when they were trying to attack. Bumrah picked up three crucial wickets for the team against the Lankans and bowled exceptionally well with an economy of 3.70.
