Zaheer Khan about Jasprit Bumrah

“He (Bumrah) is a special talent; he has got that awkward action which works as an advantage for him over the batsmen. He is keen to learn and drive to excel. He has been working on his fitness, adding new things to his bowling. He has evolved as a bowler in a short time, that have been the keys to success,” Zaheer told PTI.

“It is about how you take things into stride and what kind of approach you have. I think Bumrah has shown all the attitude of achieving that success,” he continued.

“There are so many good bowlers and (Kagiso) Rabada has been right up there, and you have seen that in such a short time. He has made such a massive impact on Test cricket, and the numbers are a reflection of that fact,” Zaheer said.

“In India, we will have to see how he adapts to conditions. You have to adapt to conditions, and for any fast bowler to be successful in India, he should possess the ability to bowl with the old ball and use the reverse swing. So, I am looking forward to seeing how Rabada goes about it and how quickly he adapts in the (Test) series,” he continued.
