Mumbai Indians (MI) frontline bowler, Jasprit Bumrah, returned to his blazing form in the twentieth match of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 against Rajasthan Royals (RR) on Tuesday.
Bumrah completely dominated the RR batting unit by picking up four wickets in his quota of overs and conceding only 20 runs. His fiery spell guided MI to a 57-run win at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
Bumrah first dismissed Royals’ skipper Steve Smith and then castled Rahul Tewatia. The Ahemdabad-born speedster didn’t just stop there as he also bagged the wickets of Jofra Archer and Shreyas Gopal.
Meanwhile, former Indian international Yuvraj Singh heaped praises on Bumrah for his remarkable spell against Royals. Yuvi reckoned that the 26-year-old was his ‘Player of the Match’ along with Surya Kumar Yadav, who scored a match-winning 47-ball 79 runs.
“Jassi jaisa koi nahi! Great spell @Jaspritbumrah93 my man of the match !! Along with @surya_14kumar #IPL2020 #MIvRR,” Yuvraj wrote on Twitter.
