Asia Cup: India vs Bangladesh, 1st T20I – Mustafizur Rehman vs Jasprit Bumrah contest would be delightful to watch
Mustafizur Rehman had a dream ODI debut against India last year where he picked 13 wickets from three matches.
New Delhi: Indian cricket team does not have memorable memories from their last tour of Bangladesh where they were stunned by the Mashrafe Mortaza-led side in a bilateral series.
Men in Blue were dismantled by pacer Mustafizur Rehman, who troubled the star-studded Indian batting line-up with his variation.
MS Dhoni's men failed to decode Rehman's off-cutters, which got him several wickets in the three-match series. Fizur picked 13 wickets from three matches and was rightly adjudged the Man of the series.
This time however, India too have a unique bowler in their arsenal – Jasprit Bumrah. The 22-year-old has already made headlines with his unorthodox action and ability to bowl pin-point yorkers in death overs.
The Ahmedabad-born pacer was very impressive against Australia in a T20I series recently, where he picked six wickets from three matches and the hosts looked extremely vulnerable against him.
A lot has been said and written about his action since the beginning of the year and he has also been accurate with line and length.
It would be interesting to see how batsmen from both the teams cope up with the pressure of playing these two unique bowlers.
