I think I’m just going with Jasprit Bumrah: David Gower

‘These are the ones in dispute (Bumrah, Robinson, Anderson). Everyone had their ups and downs, but it was the three who bowled well throughout. This is a difficult choice to make. I would like to say Jimmy, because he has proven himself again at that certain age – he is approaching 40 – there is still an ability, the fitness that makes him a unique animal. “But I think I’m just going with Bumrah,” Gower told Cricket.com.

It could have been 1-1, but the difference was that Jadeja threw in the spot and Bumrah just delivered the perfect game.
