Indian fast bowling spearhead Jasprit Bumrah stole the show against Pakistan to clinch a low-scoring thriller in the T20 World Cup 2024 group clash. The Player of the match awardee hit back at his critics, who once wrote him off after his long injury layoff with a stiff back.

India stole a victory from the jaws of defeat against Pakistan in the T20 World Cup 2024 as Babar Azam’s troops bottled a run-a-ball chase in New York last night. 

With 120 on board, Jasprit Bumrah proved to be a nightmare for Pakistan as he picked up 3 wickets in his 4 overs spell while controlling the flow of runs. His 3-run 19th over sealed the PAK’s fate as India won the game by 6 runs. 

That being said, the Player of the Match award winner, Jasprit Bumrah, took the opportunity to reply to his critics who once wrote him off. 

Bumrah said when he suffered from a back injury that led to a prolonged layoff, many said that he would never be able to play again. But those opinions have changed now.

"See a year ago, the same people were saying that I might not play again and my career is over and then now the question changed," Bumrah said taking a shot at all those who doubted his ability to fight back. 

Jasprit Bumrah also opened up on his game plan against Pakistan and how he managed to execute it in a high-pressure chase. 

"For me, I am not looking at whether I am bowling at the best of my ability. I try to solve the problem that is there in front of me. I know it's a cliched answer...but I was trying to focus on what is the best option over here on a wicket like this," the 30-year-old revealed.

Bumrah said he wasn’t trying to unleash his full potential but rather trying to bowl as per conditions. He assessed his options on how he could make stroke playing difficult for the men in green.

"How do I make shot-making difficult? What are the best options for me? So that way, I try to stay in the present and focus on what I have to do."

Needless to say, Jasprit Bumra was spot on with his execution, as Pakistan had no answers to his extraordinary skills and impeccable accuracy.
