After completing a whitewash in the Test series and securing full 120 points available from the series, Team India skipper Virat Kohli has called Jasprit Bumrah as the most complete bowler in world cricket right now. The 25 year old pacer picked up 13 wickets from the two match series at an exceptional average of 9.23 with 2 wicket-hauls. During the second Test, he also became the third Indian bowler after Harbhajan Singh and Irfan Pathan to achieve a Test hat-trick.

In a news conference, Virat Kohli said, "There is not much you can say about Jasprit, the way he has been bowling. All we can say is we are really lucky to have him on our team. He confuses you with angles, with swing, he'll set up for the outswinger, then bowl the inswinger, and it's coming at pace, and then he can hit you with bouncers as well. So, I think he is the most complete bowler in world cricket right now."

Bumrah, who has played 12 Test matches so far, achieved his best bowling figures of 6-27 in the second Test, which included a hat-trick. He also became the first bowler from Asia to pick five-wicket hauls in Australia, England, South Africa and West Indies.

"He has absolute control of what he is doing. So when he steps out on the field, he knows how much he can contribute for the team. It is really pleasing to see a guy who was tagged as a T20 specialist, he came in and took over the one-day scene and now he is taking over Test cricket."

Jasprit Bumrah, who has been India's premiere pace bowler across all three formats has been given a break for the 3 match T20I series against South Africa in order to keep him fresh for the Test series which is also part of the ICC World Test Championship.
