Jasprit, who has been in dream form in the ongoing ODI series against Sri Lanka, did India proud in the third ODI by picking up his maiden five wicket haul (in ODIs) for the country. After the match, Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman took to social media to congratulate Jasprit, while Team India skipper Virat Kohli also hailed him at the post-match presentation ceremony, saying, “He’s among our top short-format bowlers at the moment. He hits the right areas, bowls at pace and in the death overs; he’s like a fish in water.”
Give Jasprit the ball during a tough match situation, and he will deliver outstanding results every time. Playing alongside him for Team Gujarat has been a joy. It’s his self-belief that is his strength.
He has had his bad days, but Jassi’s consistency makes him a cut above the rest. I feel proud that he is playing such an important role in Team India’s journey”.
