Former African player statement about Bumrah and Jansen fight kept the country ahead of IPL did not think about bank balance – Latest Cricket News –


Former South African opener Ashwell Prince has heaped praise on young pacer Marco Jensen for “not holding back” against Jasprit Bumrah during the recently concluded Test series. Prince said that he put his country above their relationships in the IPL in the fight against the Indian bowler.

Interestingly, both Bumrah and Janssen were part of the Mumbai Indians squad in IPL 2021. Jasprit Bumrah has been retained by the five-time IPL champion while the young Proteas pacer will take part in the auction. Jansen took 19 wickets in his first series and troubled the Indian batsmen with his disciplined bowling.

Jansen and Bumrah had a heated argument during the second test match in Johannesburg. During the second innings in Johannesburg, before the atmosphere heated up between the two, Jensen took revenge on Bumrah by hitting a bouncer off short deliveries. Bumrah was seen staring after the South African pacer was dismissed in the first innings of the third Test. But Prince was impressed by Jenson.

Prince made his official Twitter The profile read, “Another thing that I especially liked during the SAvIND series, the fact that Marco Janssen didn’t hold back even once in a fight with Bumrah! He didn’t think about IPL and it was for the people there. How could that affect their relations with him. He put the country first, the way it should be.”

He continued, “Very good kids, never change. You are you and if people can’t respect you, being competitive, putting your country first. That’s their problem. Sports is about competitiveness.” Not even an inch should be given and sportsmanship should be maintained. Not about bank balance.
