He asserted that Bumrah’s skills transcend those of Afridi, highlighting the absence of any competitive comparison between the two. While Afridi excels with the new ball, Bumrah, according to Pathan, is a true master in all phases of the game. Pathan’s statement underscores Bumrah’s exceptional versatility and impact, positioning him as a top-tier fast bowler capable of influencing matches throughout their duration. This assessment from a seasoned cricketer sheds light on the high regard Bumrah commands in the cricketing world.

Irfan Pathan said, “Jasprit Bumrah is way ahead of Shaheen Afridi, there’s no competition between them. Afridi can do wonders with the new ball, but Bumrah is the master at any stage of the game”. 

Jasprit Bumrah’s exceptional performance in the 2023 World Cup match against Afghanistan earned him well-deserved praise from cricket pundits, with former cricketer Aakash Chopra asserting that he should have been named the Player of the Match.

Bumrah showcased his prowess with the ball, delivering an outstanding spell that resulted in his best-ever bowling figures in a World Cup game. He claimed four crucial wickets while conceding only 39 runs in his 10 overs. His impact on the match was significant as he played a pivotal role in limiting Afghanistan to a total of 272-8.

In the World Cup match against Afghanistan, India displayed a dominant batting performance that culminated in an emphatic eight-wicket victory. Chasing a target of 273, Rohit Sharma showcased his batting brilliance, amassing 131 runs from just 84 balls, thereby claiming the record for the most centuries in World Cup history. Rohit and Ishan Kishan initiated the onslaught with a formidable 156-run partnership for the opening wicket, laying a strong foundation for the chase. Furthermore, Virat Kohli’s unbeaten 55 and Shreyas Iyer’s 25 not out ensured that India comfortably achieved the target in a mere 35 overs, underlining their batting prowess and overall dominance.
