Other Bowlers Did Assist in Positioning Him for Success: AB de Villiers on Vizag’s Outstanding Performance by Jasprit Bumrah

<p>Veteran batsman AB de Villiers of South Africa praised India’s Jasprit Bumrah for his outstanding performance in the second Test match in Visakhapatnam against England. In two innings, Bumrah captured nine wickets and enabled India to secure a vital victory that leveled the five-match series at one. On a calm pitch, he was India’s best bowler and won Player of the Match despite Yashasvi Jaiswal scoring a double century.</p>

<p>Bumrah became the first Indian pacer to reach the top of the ICC Test Rankings for bowlers, thanks to his performance in the second Test. In addition, he is the only pacer in history to be ranked #1 in all ICC categories.</p>
<p>Bumrah bowls quite well. Jasprit Bumrah, what a bowler! On his YouTube account, AB de Villiers said, “He outbowled other Indian bowlers, but I feel the others took their turn and it was hunting in packs.”</p>
<p>Yes, their figures—those of the other Indian bowlers—do not seem good. However, they were part of the setup for him. This Indian assault appeals to me since it is not an individual sport.</p>
<p>On a calm surface in the first innings, Bumrah unleashed a stunning spell that proved too strong for the star-studded English middle order.</p>
<p>After setting up Joe Root with his incredible reverse-swinging delivery, he defeated Ollie Pope with a toe-crushing yorker to break England’s back.</p>
<p>In Test cricket, Bumrah also reached 150 wickets, making history as the quickest Indian pacer to do so.</p>
<p>In the meanwhile, one of the pinnacles of his genius at Vizag was his yorker to dismiss Pope.</p>
<p>During his IPL career, De Villiers and Bumrah had several close encounters. The Indian pacer was praised by De Villiers for his precise yorkers.</p>
<p>“That (yorkers) is undoubtedly Bumrah’s weapon in any format he participates in. When I was playing against him, I would always consider the yorker to be his primary or stock danger. He scoops up a lot of wickets with it even in Test matches, according to de Villiers.</p>
