Bumrah made his T20I debut in 27 January 2016 against Australia cricket team. He reached into the limelight due to his ability to bowl yorkers at the right time and perform well in the death. The good thing with Bumrah is that he has a slightly unorthodox action thus making it more difficult for batsmen to pick him up soon.
Also, his ability to bowl yorkers consistently has made him the leader of the Indian Cricket Team’s death bowling. Bumrah is a different bowler in pitches that assist fast bowling. The youngster bowls outside the off-stump or short quite consistently.
