'He sneaks up on you, you don't hear him coming'

Modest and likeable off the pitch but a fast-bowling demon on it - the story of India's pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah.
Bumrah is unquestionably a thrower, no doubt, compare his action to a genuine fast bowler like Jamie’s on of New Zealand that will tell you all you need to know about a legal bowling action, Removed

Most definitely a dubious bowling action. Just because he's taken a few wickets down under, why celebrate him ? He is not even India's best bowler according to their own Indian experts.

Really ??? His right arm is 15 degrees straighter than Murali's. He doesn't get much above 140 clicks so 'fast' maybe an overstatement but is very accurate.

Anyone who is serious about cricket knows that in these days of multiple angle TV and multiple replays it is not possible to get away with an illegal action in 1st class cricket. Those with no serious interest in the game but unhappy at seeing their heroes diminished will convince themselves of the opposite of the truth.

They just need to protect him from the leeches that run gambling in that gambling mad part of the world. Look at all the problems in Pakistan cricket.
Agree the Indians are as bent as a 2 bob note when it comes to gambling. Removed
All Indians??? And all Brits smell cos they take Baths??? Talk about ridiculous generalisations Removed
the english are about the same fella, please see kierean trippier betting scandal.. Removed
Gambling isn't as big a part of Indian culture as it is in the far east or the UK. The problems in Pakistan stem from the fact they are paid naff all compared the the riches in Indian cricket, a few quid can buy you a wide, NB etc. If you want to look at corruption you need look no further than the English championship and lower league football. If the Indians are bent, the English are contorted. Removed

What is the logical basis of this dispersion? So easy to be a keyboard warrior and say whatever you like against people or countries you don't like. You should be ashamed of yourself. Clearly, you need to be sent back to school and get a few more lashes for the headmaster to sort out your attitude problem.

He is NO chucker

? do you know what a chucker is ? I dont think so
