Danny Morrison showers praises on Jasprit Bumrah: Former New Zealand fast bowler was wax lyrical about the Indian fast bowler.
Former New Zealand fast bowler and current commentator Danny Morrison is known for hilarious style of commentary. While he doesn’t compromise on the technical side of the game, the manner in which he puts forward his words are liked by the listeners.
In an interview with Sportstar, Morrison praised the ‘healthy mutual respect’ between India captain Virat Kohli and Head Coach Ravi Shastri claiming the latter to be an ‘important cog in the machine’ for Indian cricket.

Currently commentating in the Bangladesh Premier League, Morrison talked about India fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah. A regular in the Indian Premier League, Morrison has seen Bumrah evolve as a bowler right from his IPL debut in 2013.
“[Jasprit] Bumrah is a classic product of IPL and white-ball cricket development of new breed of India talent. It is fabulous to see the unusual/unorthodox bowling actions still cutting it at the highest levels of the game, unearthing unique talents from the subcontinent,” Morrison said of Bumrah, who is one of the best fast bowlers across formats right now.

Bumrah might have come as a product of a T20 tournament, but the way he has fitted into the Indian team across formats is a lessons for the others who fail to perform outside the bubble of T20 leagues. Perhaps, it is constant learning and delivering which has worked in the favour of the 25-year old fast bowler.
While Bumrah will miss India’s next international assignment, that of the tour of New Zealand, he will be seen in the home series against Australia in March. Going into the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Bumrah remains a vital part of the Indian team.
