Jasprit Bumrah, has gradually climbed up the ranks to become one of India's ever reliable fast bowlers. In the 12 Test matches he has played, he has picked up 62 wickets at an average of 19.24 including 5 five-wicket hauls, the most recent one being the six-wicket haul, which included a hat-trick in the second Test at Jamaica.

Anil Kumble, who was the head coach of the National side when Jasprit Bumrah started his career has said that he has the ability to become the greatest fast bowler for India ever.

In an interview, Anil Kumble said, "Bumrah is a lot more consistent, he knows how to get a wicket. It is not just about the skill set you have or you possess the ability to bowl in, away or a bouncer. Bumrah has done that brilliantly and he is a great student of the game, he understands the nuances, he bowls differently to different batsmen, assesses those conditions really quickly and that has been the ability of Jasprit Bumrah in this series."

Kumble, a veteran of 619 Test wickets also feels that he has shades of becoming a great fast bowler. "Yes, he certainly has the quality to go on and become the greatest ever fast bowler from India. I think that is something that he has and you can see those shades early in his career. He is only 25 so he has a long way ahead of him and you know it is wonderful to see the kinds of performances he has put together."

Up next, Team India will host South Africa for 3 T20Is and 3 Tests from September 15th.
