Jasprit Bumrah has been the leader of the Indian pace attack for a while now. So far, the pacer from Gujarat has hardly displayed any chinks in his armour. Against Sri Lanka in the ongoing day-night Test match in Bengaluru, despite the spin assisting conditions, Jasprit Bumrah picked up a five-wicket haul. With this, Bumrah went on to topple a few records. In this article, we take a look at the one recent Tweet that sums up the legacy of Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah in Test cricket.
Jasprit Bumrah in Test cricket is of a different league
When Jasprit Bumrah started out in his international career, not many expected him to do well in Tests. At the start, Bumrah used to excel in bowling at the death and with his unorthodox action. However, a few experts commented that in the red-ball games, this might not be of great use.
However, ever since he made his Test debut in South Africa, Bumrah has re-invented himself to stay relevant in this format. He has been India’s leader in overseas games and has won a few matches on his own. In order to manage his workload, the management hardly used him in Test matches at home. However, against Sri Lanka, he played both games. He also picked up a five-wicket haul at Bengaluru. After his special show at the Chinnaswamy Stadium, here is a Tweet written about Bumrah which sums him his legacy:

Having knocked off the important milestones for a bowler, Bumrah is now destined for greatness. It needs to be seen as to how quickly he achieves the unaccomplished records in the game.
