HARMANPREET’s RISE TO FAME
In December 2016, she became the first Indian woman to play the Big Bash league in Australia. But the best was yet to come from her. In the ICC Women’s World Cup in 2017, she played a staggering knock of 171 from just 115 balls against Australia. It was the semi-final of the world cup.
BUMRAH: THE KING OF DEATH BOWLING
Ever since his debut, he has only become better with each passing game and tour. He is one of the best death over bowlers across the globe and has won accolades from the entire cricket fraternity. He made his test debut against South Africa in the recently concluded test series and also got his first 5 wicket haul in the very third game.
Jasprit Bumrah has picked up 58 wickets from just 33 ODIs. In T20s he has scalped 40 wickets from just 32 matches and he was retained by the Mumbai Indians before the IPL auctions for IPL 2018 took place.
He made his ODI debut in 2016 against Australia and the rest is history. The 24-year-old has become one of the top bowlers in international cricket and taking giant leaps each day.
He has cemented his place in the Indian side across formats and he is one very valuable asset for team India. He is indeed the king of death overs bowling.
