India and Mumbai Indians speedster JaspritBumrah praised a lot on his veteran Mumbai Indians teammate pace bowler Lasith Malinga. Bumrah said that Malinga is "the best yorker bowler in the world" and he is considered as one as well. Even Bumrah too is renowned for his ability with the perfect yorker and in the past, he has also given the credit to Malinga for helping him with the yorker.
"Malinga is the best yorker bowler in the world and has used it for such a long period of time to the best of his advantage," he said according to a tweet by Mumbai Indians.
On the other hand, the entire world has been fighting against the global pandemic COVID-19 which has brought the world into a standstill and postponed all the sporting events including the cash-rich Indian Premier League for the indefinite time and also there are several imposed guidelines and lockdown as well. Even staying home and maintain social distancing is one of those ways to fight against the global pandemic.
However, JaspritBumrah said that he is not too troubled by the banning of hugs and high fives on the field while playing as the International Cricket Council (ICC) finds a way to start cricket amid the coronavirus pandemic. Although the ICC has banned using saliva to shine the ball, he said there need to be some alternative things to the use instead of saliva.
"I was not much of a hugger anyway! And not a high-five person as well, so that doesn't trouble me a lot. The only thing that interests me is the saliva bit," Bumrah said to Ian Bishop and Shaun Pollock on the ICC's video series Inside Out interviews.
"I don't know what guidelines we'll have to follow when we come back, but I feel there should be an alternative. If the ball is not well maintained, it's difficult for the bowlers. The grounds are getting shorter and shorter, the wickets are becoming flatter and flatter. So we need something, some alternative for the bowlers to maintain the ball so that it can do something -- maybe reverse in the end or conventional swing," he concluded
