R Ashwin or Harbhajan Singh,” Yuvraj asked.

The Indian fast bowler also added the fact that he played along with Ashwin in Team India but grown up watching Harbhajan Singh. and picked the latter as the better off-spinner. “Why so many controversial questions for me? I have played with Ash (Ashwin). But I have grown up seeing Harbhajan Singh. So Bhajju pa, it is,” Bumrah said.

In reply to that question, the Ahmedabad born pacer said that he has not played enough cricket to rate such big cricketers. However, in the end, he took the name of Master Blaster ahead of the current Indian skipper in terms of better batsman between the two.
“Yuvi pa, look it’s been only 4 years I have been playing international cricket. I am giving you a long answer. I am not experienced enough to judge them. Virat Tendulkar or Sachin Kohli. I am in no position because they have played a lot more cricket than me.
“Paaji ki fan toh puri duniya hai, Virat khud bhi hai toh mai paaji ka nam lunga, Sachin sir (The whole world is a fan of Sachin Tendulkar, Virat himself is his fan so I will go with Sachin Tendulkar).” Bumrah said.
