Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah is rated as the number one pacer from the nation. His unique fast bowling skills, along with his sublime abilities to bowl consistent yorkers, have allowed him to become a pace-bowling sensation across formats, including the Indian Premier League.

The Gujarat-based pacer began his IPL career with Mumbai Indians in 2013 and has been rising in the performance chart ever since. Furthermore, his career began to take a steep rise ever since the 2015 season after he began to train under MI's bowling coach Shane Bond.

On the same note, Bumrah has given credit to Bond for shaping his career. "I always try to talk to him even when I am not here and with the Indian team. So, it's been a good journey, and hopefully, every year, I keep learning something new and try to add new things to my bowling. He has played a major role in that. It's been a great relationship so far, and hopefully, this continues for many, many years to come," he said in a video shared by MI.

"I met him for the first time in 2015. As a child, I had seen him bowl and was always very fascinated by how he used to bowl for New Zealand and how he used to operate. When I met him over here, it was a good experience. He helped me a lot to open my mind to different things that I could try on the cricket field. So, that was very good and that relationship has only gotten better each and every year," he added.

Bond was also given due credit by his fellow New Zealand pacer Trent Boult, as the latter rated him as a tremendous thinker and a good tactician. "He has been here for a long time, he knows what he is doing and he puts in a lot of work into making sure that the bowlers are well equipped and have got enough information to make some decisions on the day," Boult concluded.

Bumrah will have a significant role to play for Team India in the upcoming ICC World Test Championship final against New Zealand in Southampton next month. Boult would feature for the Kiwis in the game, as it would be interesting to see the two spearguns clash head-on.
