My first one-day wicket is Steve Smith: Jasprit Bumrah



Jasprit Bumrah is among the best pacers in the world currently. He has competitions from different nations, but the speedster isn't paying attention to it. The India star bowler talked about his counterparts, and also the comparison between MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli as captain in a recent interview with Hindustan Times.
The 26-year-old sees both Dhoni and Kohli the same as captain in a certain way. "Both of them are pretty similar in the way that they want you to take ownership. They give you the field you want, the help you need. You take responsibility for your own bowling," Bumrah told Hindustan Times.
Currently, Australia batsman and former skipper Steve Smith is having a good run with the bat, keeping some failures against New Zealand away. Bumrah revealed how he would bowl to the number two Test batsman.
"My first one-day wicket is Steve Smith. There's no particular way that you get a batsman out. You study what the wicket is doing, then select the best option. What I look to do against any good batsman, is to have patience," Bumrah said.
Speaking on the growing competition among the pacers in the world. He opined, "I don’t look at it that way, no. I enjoy fast bowling. I am not the kind of guy who will get jealous. If good fast bowling is happening, I will always watch and I will have fun. Even if somebody is bowling really well against us," Bumrah said on his rivalry with Jofra Archer and Pat Cummins.
Jasprit Bumrah is clear about his preference for formats. He picked Test over limited-overs cricket. " If you do well in Tests, you can do well in any format. Because people saw me in the IPL first, they think that’s what made me."
