Yorker is a delivery which takes the pitch out of the equation and can give any batsmen a run for his money. The delivery does challenge the striker but bowling it perfectly is an even difficult job. A little error can convert the delivery into s juicy full-toss which the batsman can smash quite easily. However, Bumrah doesn't seem to break a sweat while bowling the toe-crushers. On many occasions, he has uprooted the timber which has taken the batsmen by surprise. Talking about Bumrah's ability to execute impeccable yorkers, let's look at some of his deliveries which has left the batsmen awestruck.

As of now, Bumrah is recovering from a lower-back injury and hence will not be seen in action during the India vs West Indies series. He is expected to make a comeback in India's Tour of New Zealand next year. Indian team management will also wish for the pacer's speedy recovery as the ICC T20 World Cup 2020 is less than a year away and Bumrah will certainly be critical for India's success in the gala-tournament.
