IND vs SL: Here is how Jasprit Bumrah compared captaincy of MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli

Team India’s star pacer Jasprit Bumrah recently made his comeback into the national side for their three-match T20I against Sri Lanka after successfully recovering his injury.

Bumrah had picked up the injury in September and did not play in the home series against South Africa, Bangladesh and West Indies.

The 26-year-old is easily one of the best bowlers in world cricket and now shared his thoughts on how both MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli are cut from the same cloth when it comes to leading their teams.

“Both of them are pretty similar in the way that they want you to take ownership. They give you the field you want, the help you need. You take responsibility for your own bowling,” Bumrah told Hindustan Times during an interview.

The Indian speedster is also part of the ‘Men In Blue’ squad which will take on Australia for a three-match ODI series right after their encounter with Sri Lanka comes to an end.

“My first one-day wicket is Steve Smith. There’s no particular way that you get a batsman out. You study what the wicket is doing, then select the best option. What I look to do against any good batsman, is to have patience,” Bumrah said.

“I don’t look at it that way, no. I enjoy fast bowling. I am not the kind of guy who will get jealous. If good fast bowling is happening, I will always watch and I will have fun. Even if somebody is bowling really well against us,” Bumrah claimed while speaking about his competition.

Jasprit also revealed that he likes to play Test cricket over white-ball cricket as well.

“If you do well in Tests, you can do well in any format. Because people saw me in the IPL first, they think that’s what made me.”

Bumrah is part of the Indian squad which take on Sri Lanka at the Barsapara Stadium in Guwahati on Sunday (December 5) for the first T20I match.
