Bumrah is the best pacer of this time:Brett Lee
Former Australian Cricketer Brett Lee, who was recognized as one of the fastest all-time bowlers in the world, today said that ace Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah was the best fast bowler of this time.
Lee who was here for a program regarding awareness about hearing loss and its treatment as the brand ambassador of Cochlea, an Austrailan medical device company that designs, manufactures and supplies the Nucleus cochlear implant for patients with damaged cochlea ( the part of the inner ear involved in hearing) said during an event at the BJ Medical college auditorium here that Bumrah was of-course the best pacer of this time in the world.
He said, ‘ Bumrah had done particularly well and is the best pacer of this time.”
Notably, Bumrah, who was from Ahmedabad in Gujarat, was number one bowler in the ICC ranking.
To another query he said that it was difficult balling to all the India batsmen of his time including Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman, Rahul Dravid and M S Dhoni.
‘In fact all the Indian batsmen gave me nightmares,’ he said in a lighter vein.
On being asked about the lowest moment of his life and how he came over it, the former pacer said that there were many lowly moments in his life and career but the worst one was when his son lost his hearing temporarily after a fall. But he regained if naturally which relieved him of it.
Lee also emphasized on the need of the early intervention for hearing related issues, universal newborn hearing screening and spread of awareness about impact of hearing loss.
