He doesn’t only have a big heart but also has brains and we saw that yesterday when he outsmarted Ollie Robinson with a brilliant slower ball to dismiss him after peppering him with a few short balls,”.

Sachin Tendulkar further added that current Indian bowling is the best bowling unit in the world. Also, he talked about the people who make a comparison of Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, and Mohammed Siraj to Indian bowlers of other generations like Zaheer Khan and Kapil Dev. Sachin Tendulkar asserted:

Today this bowling attack is the best in the world. It’s a reflection of talent, discipline and ability to work hard on fitness and wanting to learn more. I don’t like comparisons across eras because bowling attacks should also be judged by batters who are batting against them. Be it during Kapil’s or Srinath’s or Zaheer’s generation, there were different batsmen facing them,”.
