Jasprit Bumrah has been the wrecker-in-chief for the Indian cricket team in the T20 World Cup 2024 in the West Indies and the United States.

In their opening Group A game against Ireland in the T20 World Cup 2024, Jasprit Bumrah dismissed Harry Tector to bag his first wicket in the ongoing ICC tournament.

Bumrah later removed Joshua Little to help India bowl out Ireland for 96 in 16 overs. The Indian bowling spearhead finished with impressive figures of 3-1-6-2. 

Under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, India successfully chased down the target in 12.2 overs to register a comprehensive eight-wicket win at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York. Bumrah was later adjudged the Player of the Match for his brilliant spell.

The 30-year-old continued his sensational form against arch-rivals Pakistan in their second Group A fixture. 

After India were bowled out for 119 in 19 overs against Pakistan, the Men in Blue needed some inspiration from their bowlers. Bumrah gave India an early breakthrough as he bagged the massive wicket of Pakistan captain Babar Azam.

The right-arm pacer later cleaned up wicketkeeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan in the 15th over to change the game in India’s favour.

He then claimed Iftikhar Ahmed’s wicket to finish with figures of 4-0-14-3. Bumrah’s magnificent spell guided India to a thrilling six-run victory in New York.

The Gujarat-born cricketer bagged back-to-back Player of the Match awards in the T20 World Cup 2024.

In their third Group A match against co-hosts United States, Bumrah produced another economical spell in New York. While India’s star pacer didn’t pick any wicket, he conceded just 25 runs in his quota of four overs.

Rohit Sharma’s men secured a seven-wicket win over the United States to book their place in the T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8 stage. India’s final Group A match against Canada was later abandoned due to wet outfield.

In the T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8 stage, Bumrah continued to torment the opposition batters.

Bumrah set a new Indian record against Afghanistan in their opening Super 8 clash in the T20 World Cup 2024 at the Kensington Oval in Barbados.

The speedster bowled the most economical spell by an Indian in the T20 World Cup history. Bumrah troubled the Afghanistan batters as he scalped three wickets while conceding just seven runs in his four overs. 

Defending 181, Bumrah removed Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Hazratullah Zazai and Najibullah Zadran to skittle out Afghanistan for 134. India won the game by 47 runs.

Later in their second Super 8 game against Bangladesh, Bumrah produced another economical spell. After India scored 196/5 in their 20 overs, the Men in Blue rode on an all-round bowling performance to restrict Bangladesh to 146 in their allotted overs.

Bumrah dismissed Bangladesh captain Najmul Hossain Shanto to finish with figures of 4-0-13-1. Know Jasprit Bumrah T20 World Cup 2024 stats.
