Pakistan speedster Mohammad Amir named Indian bowler Jasprit Bumrah as the best bowler of T20 cricket. Amir also stated that it would be wrong to compare Bumrah with Pakistan pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi.

Amir made his choice on who is the best bowler when asked to compare Bumrah and Shaheen Afridi. As India prepares to take on Pakistan in their tournament opener of the ICC T20 World Cup in Dubai on Sunday.

He also said currently the Pakistani pacer is the best bowler in the country and labeled Bumrah as the best death bowler in T20 cricket.

“See, comparing Shaheen with Bumrah at this point would be foolish because Shaheen is young and he is learning. And Bumrah has been doing well for India since so long and currently, I think he is the best T20 bowler, especially in the death over,” Amir said on the YouTube channel.

But Shaheen is Pakistan’s best bowler at the moment, given the way he has been performing in the last year, year-and-a-half. So, this promises to be a good contest. Bumrah bowls brilliantly with the new ball and among youngsters, Shaheen is the best when the ball is new,” he added.
