Top 10 Debutants of 2016

3. Jasprit Bumrah (India)

Top 10 Debutants of 2016India’s Jasprit Bumrah was one of the most promising finds of the year. Especially, considering India’s struggle to find a quality death bowler in shorter-formats, Bumrah seems a jewel. In his debut match, when other Indian pacers were belted all-around the park at Sydney, the Ahmedabad-born Jasprit ended up with 2 wickets and an economy of 4.

And remarkably, he was able to hit the blockhole with great accuracy. His top-notch skills when combined with his uncanny action, makes him a tough bowler to pick for batsmen. He performed brilliantly in shorter-formats throughout the year and is living up to his promise.

In 21 T20Is, the right-arm pacer has pocketed 28 wickets at 18.82 with an economy of 6.62. With 17 wickets in 8 ODIs at 14.64 and economy of 3.63, he has replicated his T20 success in One-dayers as well.
