Jasprit Bumrah becomes No.1 Bowler across all formats

The Indian ace pacer Jasprit Bumrah has become the first bowler in history to attain the No.1 Rankings for Bowlers across all formats of the game. This achievement is due to the consistency and skills of the player.

Jasprit Bumrah is a bowler who can deliver under pressure and proved to be a nightmare for batters. He has been one of the most formidable bowlers of his generation.

His journey to the top spot in Test, ODI, and T20 cricket has been a testament to Bumrah’s excellence. His ability to swing the ball both ways has made him a force to be calculated with.

 His wicket-taking skills in crucial roles have gained success for India in the Test Cricket. His advance in the ranking was the immediate effect after the second Test in England’s India tour.

Bumrah picked up six wickets in the first innings and dismissed three batters in the second innings of the test to help India beat the visitors by 106 runs and level the series 1-1.

It is the first time Bumrah has held top ranking in Test format, having placed in third despite picking 10 five wickets hauls in 34 Test appearances.

Bumrah is the fourth Indian bowler after Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, and Bishen Singh Bedi to achieve no.1 ranking in Test Cricket.
