Jasprit Bumrah is the find of the T20 series: MS Dhoni

Sydney, Feb 1: India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is highly impressed with young Gujarat pacer Jasprit Bumrah, who has given the Australian batsmen hard time during the limited overs series in Australia that concluded on Sunday.

"At the end of the day, we have won and I am happy it's a comprehensive victory. Winning 3-0 against Australia in Australia is always a big one. But it is more about how the team is looking rather than just from a captain's view.

"We have won the series over here but it is important to look at the bigger picture. Jasprit Bumrah has potential and is looking very good indeed. Even today he bowled the yorkers really well." Veteran Ashish Nehra also came in for some praise from the skipper.

"The formats are different but it was the bowlers that we were really looking for and I feel when it comes to fast bowlers, Bumrah and Ashish Nehra have done a good job in the three games they have played. Hardik Pandya as a package is very good. He is a good fielder and at the same time if he gives me those couple overs, and the reputation he has with his batting lower down, he looks like a good one to have in the side," he said.

Dhoni in a roundabout manner also made it clear that likes of Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav might find it difficult to break into the limited overs side considering their inconsistent performances over the past few years.

"We came here with a slightly inexperienced bowling attack but at the same time we wanted to try different people. Because we had been trying the same few individuals and we have been getting the same results. So it was high time that we gave chances to a few individuals in the domestic circuit and see what really they have to offer.

"As far as only talent is concerned, there were a few people who looked good but they will have to improve further. But the find of the tour for me was Bumrah. The way he has bowled in the last three games he has been really good," he added.
