Tendulkar calls Bumrah, the world's best bowler

Sachin Tendulkar showered rich praise on Jasprit Bumrah after Mumbai finished with figures of two for 14 in their 1- run win over Chennai in the final of Premier League: 2019.

No doubt, it was exceptional bowling performance from Bumrah in the IPL final as the bowler came with a game-changing spell.  He gave only 14 runs in his four overs and picked two crucial wickets of Ambati Rayudu and Dwayne Bravo to dent the chances of CSK's wing. 

When the batsmen are taking his pace partner Lasith Malinga to cleaners, Bumrah performed his class and made it extremely difficult for the CsK batsmen to attach his bowling. Speaking after MI's title win, India's batting icon Sachin Tendulkar called him the world's best. Sachin said that Bumrah's best has yet to come indicating that he would perform better in the World cup. 

Responding to Tendulkar's statement, Bumrah took to Twitter and thanked the batting great. He tweeted, "I am speechless thank you Sachin sir". 

Bumrah finished the IPL 2019 campaign with 16 wickets in 16 matches he played at a miserly economy rate of 6.63. He was the bowler who performed consistently this IPL. Though pacers from other countries performed well, they did not show the consistency shown by Indian star pacer.
