Jasprit Bumrah has taken the limelight of Word cricket with his spectacular performance at Oval in the 1st India vs England ODI match. England former captain Nasser Hussain termed him as the best all-format bowler. When Jos Buttler was asked in the post-match presentation what his take on was on Hussain’s view, Buttler gave a cool and calm reply. But he got irked with the reporter’s repeated question.
Jasprit Bumrah broke the backbone of England’s batting lineup and picked up 6 wickets including the crucial wickets of Jason Roy (0), Joe Root (0), and Jonny Bairstow (7), and Liam Livingstone (0) with the new ball. Hussain, in the commentary box, was impressed with the brilliant performance of Bumrah and said he is currently the best all-format bowler and has very few challenges.
When Buttler was asked in the post-match presentation about Hussain’s view, Jos replied that he does not doubt that Jasprit is one of the leading bowlers of India right now. That’s why he feels excited to face India as they have a great quality of players and would be prepared next time to face the challenge.
But the reporter asked again that Jos didn’t reply to his question of whether Bumrah is currently the best all-format bowler or not. Jos Buttler got irked with this repeated question and replied, “You decide”.
India won the first ODI by 10 wickets and got the lead of 1-0. They will indeed look up to give another clinical performance at the Lord’s and clinch the series victory at London.
