T20 World Cup: USA’s All-Rounder Corey Anderson Reveals Special Affection for India’s Star Pacer Jasprit Bumrah

In a recent revelation, the USA’s all-rounder, Corey Anderson, expressed his special affection for India’s top fast bowler, Jasprit Bumrah, ahead of their face-off on June 12 in the 2024 T20 World Cup. Anderson reminisced about the days when both he and Bumrah played for the same team, the Mumbai Indians (MI), in the Indian Premier League (IPL). He praised Bumrah’s journey from being a young talent to becoming one of the best bowlers in the world.

Despite being considered underdogs in the tournament, the USA team has impressed cricket fans by winning both their Group A matches against Canada and Pakistan. The clash between India and the USA has garnered significant hype, especially after the Monank Patel-led team defeated Pakistan in a super-over thriller, with match-winning performances from Indian-origin players like fast bowler Saurabh Netravalkar.

Anderson, who has spent considerable time playing in India during his IPL career, also shared his experience. The New Zealand-born all-rounder has played alongside Bumrah, Rohit Sharma, and later Virat Kohli with RCB. Speaking to Star Sports, Anderson elaborated on his time with Bumrah at the Mumbai Indians and his perspective on the Indian pacer’s performance over the years. “I have a bit of a soft spot for Bumrah. I think when he was first brought to the Mumbai Indians, I was there, and it was amazing to see him grow from this natural talent into one of the best bowlers in the world. It’s nice to see that progression because you see what they talk about at the start of their career and how they gain that experience,” Anderson said.

“Watching him reach his potential has been fantastic. We are definitely going to play against him, and he can cause some serious damage. I think facing him will be extremely exciting,” Anderson added. While Bumrah is in excellent form with 5 wickets in 2 matches, the USA hasn’t needed Anderson’s usual brilliant batting in the T20 World Cup so far. The encounter between the two teams has already been hailed as an emotional clash by fans on both sides.
