Stuart Broad, who is out of cricketing action has been active on social media platforms. On his recent Instagram post, an Indian fan compared him with India’s bowling mainstay Jasprit Bumrah. “You are not great like Bumrah,” wrote the fan on Broad’s picture.
In reply, Broad added that he loves Jasprit Bumrah and also called him one of his favorites. Furthermore, Broad also suggested the fan to enjoy watching good bowlers instead of making comparisons.
“I love him, one of my favourites. I agree with you, but you don’t need comparisons. Just enjoy good bowlers,” wrote Stuart Broad. Jasprit Bumrah has been one of the consistent bowlers for India.
The 26-year-old will be seen in action for the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 edition. He will be looking forward to helping his team defend the title at the United Arab Emirates.

Broad registered his career-best figures of 8–15 in the 2015 Ashes series against Australia. The pacer dismantled Aussies in the first innings as they were bundled out for a paltry 60. It was named a Wisden’s Men’s Test spell of the decade.
Since then, he established himself as the consistent bowler for England. He carved out a reputation for himself as England’s bowling mainstay. Recently, Broad joined the elite club of fast bowlers to take 500 wickets.
He was the seventh bowler in the history of Test cricket to achieve the feat. In fact, he was the fourth pacer and the second bowler for England after James Anderson, to accomplish the landmark in his 14th year of traditional cricket.
