T20 World Cup: Mark Waugh picks Jasprit Bumrah- Former World Cup winning Australian opener Mark Waugh has picked Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah as one of his top 5 picks for the upcoming T20Is. Bumrah recently returned to action after recovering from injury in the three-match T20I series against Australia which India won 2-1. The 28-year-old who has been rehabilitating at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru was fully fit but is yet to return to his former form.

I think he is a very good bowler in all formats. His ability to take the net in T20 cricket is very important. Waugh told the ICC website that he could bowl to death and bowl again.

Waugh chose Pakistans Shaheen Afridi as Bumrahs new bowling partner. A couple of the only two walkers are Rashid Khan including Afghanistan spinner Australia all-rounder Glenn Maxwell and Englands Jos Buttler.

To open bowling on the other side we will go with another great Pakistani pitcher Shahin Afridi who is a great left arm pitcher Waugh said.

Describing Shaheen as a wicket-keeper batsman Waugh said: He lifts the team. He is a guy that other players follow.

“He is a left-armer so that’s any other factor of difference. He can swing the ball again into the right-hander, he’s rapid as well, so I’ve received him wide variety two.”

On picking, Rashid Waugh said: Every match he has played he is just a guy who you know will bowl four overs. “He’ll in all likelihood get two or three wickets and go for 20 runs, and he can bat. He can additionally whack the ball over the fence.”

On his reason in the back of choosing Buttler, the Australian said: “I assume he’s likely the wide variety one batsman in world cricket in the T20 format. He’s simply a easy striker of the ball.”

The T20 World Cup will get underway on October sixteen
