Former Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar said that pacer Jasprit Bumrah is the best bowler in the world in the current scenario. 

After Mumbai defeated MS Dhoni-led Chennai by one run in the final of Indian Premier League 2019 to clinch the coveted trophy, Sachin reflected his thoughts on Bumrah's performance. 

"Without any doubt, I go on record and say that he (Bumrah) is the best bowler in the world at this stage and the best is yet to come (from him) hopefully," said Tendulkar. 

In a video posted by the official handle of IPL, Tendulkar was chatting with Yuvraj Singh, who also agreed to Tendulkar's thought about Bumrah.

When Sachin asked what makes Bumrah a special bowler, Yuvraj said, "I think his action is a bit awkward but it is tough to understand what pace is coming. I think he is bowling the best I have seen in his career."

During the post-match presentation, Bumrah said, "We were trying to keep calm and not panic. We did the same thing in 2017. Eventually, it worked out. Really happy. We always believed in our team. We have confidence in each and every individual."

Bumrah was given Man of Match award for his economical bowling in the death overs and picking up two wickets in the crucial match.
