India’s bowling wizard  Jasprit Bumrah  has emerged as one of the world’s foremost T20 players over the years. Bumrah will be back at the T20 World Cup after missing the previous edition due to injury. The Indian bowler made his debut in 2016 and has been one of the names who haven’t been able to win the World Cup. The 30-year-old was recently a part of the Indian Premier League, where he scalped a total of 20 wickets in 12 games at an economy of 6.48 and an average of 16.80. Bumrah would aim to make the most of the season, and will undoubtedly be one of the strongest contenders to be named Player of the Tournament.
