"This Guy is a Joke": England star hails Jasprit Bumrah as 'best in the world'

After witnessing his spell in Vizag, England pacer Ollie Robinson hailed Jasprit Bumrah as the 'best bowler in the world'.

During the second Test against England in Vizag, India's premier fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah became the talk of the town. Bumrah played a pivotal role in the hosts' triumph by taking 9 wickets. While all of Bumrah's 9 wickets were special, the yorker he bowled to Ollie Pope in the first innings of the match made big headlines. The video of the delivery went viral on social media, drawing reactions from all across the globe.

Even England fast bowler Ollie Robinson was amazed by the delivery, stating how exceptionally talented Bumrah is.

Robinson said Jasprit Bumrah has been exceptional. He named Bumrah "the best bowler in the world" ten times in Vizag.

Robinson also discussed Bumrah's impact in Indian conditions with England's pace bowling icon James Anderson, acknowledging how special Bumrah had to be to succeed on a pitch that favours spin bowlers.

During a conversation with James Anderson after the last game, Robinson agreed that watching Jasprit Bumrah bowl in India is truly special. His performance is extraordinary and has given England some food for thought.

Bumrah will undoubtedly look to produce similar magic for India as they take on England in the third Test at Rajkot.
