Commentator and retired cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar showered praise on Jasprit Bumrah's bowling performance in India's T20 World Cup game against Pakistan on Sunday, June 9, 2024.

Bumrah's exceptional bowling -- 3 wickets for just 14 runs -- proved decisive in India's narrow six run victory.

Manjrekar took to social media to acknowledge Bumrah's impact, stating, 'While Indian media obsesses over Virat & Co, Jasprit Bumrah quietly wins games for India single-handedly. By far the best player in the Indian team & has been for a while now. #JaspritBumrah #ICCT20WC.'

His tweet subtly contrasted Bumrah's performance with Virat Kohli, who scored only 4 runs.
