Afghanistan’s young pacer Naveen-Ul-Haq expresses his big wish to acquire 50% of the Indian right-armed fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah’s skills that the latter has acquired during his career.
Jasprit Bumrah has proved himself back and again and has performed so well whenever his Team needed him. Naveen-Ul-Haq has admired him a lot. He admired Bumrah by saying:
“I admire him as a bowler. Such a cool and calm customer of the game. The way he carries himself even in the toughest of situations is a great example to learn from. I will be glad if I even become 50 percent of the bowler he is. He is simply terrific.”
The 22-year old states further about the big coincidence that even he got to notice after the display of the action on the big screen. The young bowler further added:
“Even I didn’t know I had a similar bowling action to Jasprit Bumrah. Before this T20 World Cup, no one had pointed this out. You know the similar load-up or the hyperextension. It was during the match that I saw it on the big screen that our bowling action was being compared and I was like ‘wow!’, there is indeed some similarity. After that match, people started to ask me about it. I feel the bowling action comes naturally. But the similarity is completely a coincidence.”
Being not so consistent with the ball, Naveen however managed to keep the critics impressed with his skills during the World Cup 2021.
