Speedster Jasprit Bumrah will lead the Indian bowling attack in the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024 to be played in USA and West Indies in June.

Meanwhile, Bumrah has drawn massive praise from legendary Australia speedster Brett Lee. The Australian great feels that apart from Bumrah, pacers are failing to nail yorkers effectively in the death overs and he wants them to master the pivotal delivery.

On a general rule, other than Bumrah, we haven't seen enough fast bowlers nailing their yorkers recently.I want to see fast bowlers bowl more yorkers. I still don't reckon they execute enough yorkers at the death," said Lee during a recent interaction.

"If you look back at 17 years of Indian Premier League, on average a yorker goes for a strike rate of less than 100. Which tells me that one run or less per bowler that's executed. Now, when you bowl a yorker and you've got guys who can go down and scoop you over the head, well that puts pressure on you as a bowle," he further said.

"You've got to set in the right field and put two men back, third man fine and back and then bowl," he added.
