Former Indian all-rounder Irfan Pathan feels that there is no bigger x-factor in Team India than Jasprit Bumrah for the ICC T20 World Cup 2021.

Jasprit Bumrah has been one of the best bowlers for Team India and even in the whole world in recent years. The right-arm pacer has evolved into one of the finest fast bowlers and has become skipper Virat Kohli’s go-to bowler in all formats of the game.

Ever since making his debut in 2016, the Indian pace sensation has become a match-winner for captain Virat Kohli and has evolved into one of the bowlers currently on the scene who can become one of the greatest of all-time barring fitness issues.

With T20 World Cup 2021 taking place, there’s no brainier that the 27-year-old will play a pivotal role for the Indian Cricket Team. Bumrah had a terrific IPL 2021 campaign as he finished third in the race of purple cap and ended the season with 21 wickets to his name.

Irfan Pathan feels that there is no bigger x-factor than Indian pace sensation Jasprit Bumrah in any other team.

“According to me in terms of bowling, there is only one X-factor and that is Jasprit Bumrah. There can’t be a bigger X-factor than Bumrah in any other team,” Irfan Pathan told Star Sports

Former Indian skipper Gautam Gambhir echoed the views of Irfan Pathan and called Jasprit Bumrah the x-factor in the Indian line-up. “Reckon that KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli Varun Chakravarthy, and probably an X- factor, which will be Jasprit Bumrah,” Gautam Gambhir said.

Notably, Jasprit Bumrah was impressive when the Indian Cricket Team faced England in the warmup game. The right-arm pacer finished with the figures of 1/26.

The Virat Kohli-led side will take on Australia in their second warmup game on 20th October before starting their campaign against Pakistan on 24th October.
