Legends don’t need to prove their worth to anyone: Jasprit Bumrah

The speedster also congratulated Team India for an incredible win.

MS Dhoni and his ability to finish the games came to the fore once again at the Adelaide Oval as India levelled the three-match series. He kept his cool during the nervy moments of the game and made sure that Virat Kohli’s charismatic century didn’t go in vain. In the process, the veteran fittingly scored the winning run which was a mere formality after he had sealed the deal with a gigantic six only a ball before that.

Dhoni, after getting criticised for his slow knock in Sydney, remained unbeaten on 55 off 54 balls smacking only two sixes during his stay in the middle. The finisher was back for the Men in Blue and among many even the resting Jasprit Bumrah was delighted for India’s most experienced player.

He termed MS Dhoni as a ‘legend’ and went on to say that players like him don’t need to prove their mettle having done it a number of times in their illustrious careers. Bumrah also lauded the Indian captain for his superlative ton and congratulated Team India on taking the series to the decider.

Here’s his tweet:

India missing Bumrah?

Meanwhile, Team India seems to be missing Jasprit Bumrah at the moment in the ongoing series. They conceded a lot of runs in the death overs in Sydney and the case repeated once again in Adelaide. While Bhunveshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami are doing a fair job, the third seamer is being targeted by the hosts.

Khaleel Ahmed and Mohammed Siraj have performed that role so far in two matches and both have struggled a lot. Bumrah would’ve made a huge difference had he played the series it seems. However, with him being rested, it remains to be seen how these players perform in the most important series clincher in Melbourne on Friday.
