Jasprit Bumrah one of the shining lights for India in the tournament says that the defending champions will not take Pakistan lightly when the teams meet in the final. India had walloped Pakistan by 124 runs when the teams met at the start of the tournament.
On Pakistan’s resurgence in the tournament, Bumrah said, “Cricket is a funny game, anything can happen on any day.
“They are always a good side. On their day they can beat any side so you cannot take any team lightly, especially Pakistan, you have to give them equal respect. Now we’ve reached the final we’ll plan. There are no easy games over here,” he added.
Bumrah finished with two for 39 in the semis against Bangladesh. He took a return catch from Mosaddek Hossain, and then cleaned up Mahmudullah with a yorker.
On his performance, he added, “It always feels good whenever you’re contributing to your team.
“(Bowling yorkers) is not easy and you have to work really hard. Whenever I have a net session I always try and emphasise that.
“I’ll have a good death session because that’s the time I bowl in the match. It’s similar to bowling a length ball but the more you practice it, the better you get at it.”
