Former India all-rounder Irfan Pathan believes that there cannot be a bigger X-factor than pacer Jasprit Bumrah in India’s bowling line-up for the T20 World Cup.

“According to me in terms of bowling, there is only one X-factor and that is Jasprit Bumrah. There can’t be a bigger X-factor than Bumrah in any other team,” Pathan said on the Star Sports show Follow the Blues.

Even cricketer-turned-politician Gautam Gambhir supported Pathan’s statement, saying: “Reckon that KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Varun Chakravarthy and probably an X- factor, which will be Jasprit Bumrah.”

On Monday, Team India got off to a winning start in their new kits as they defeated England by seven wickets in their opening T20 World Cup warm-up game.
