Being stingy as a bowler is one undebatable advantage but Bumrah has combined that with wickets. Such cordial communication was out on display when Bhuvneshwar, talked about a new addition to his armory, the knuckle-ball with Bumrah in a video made for BCCI's official website after the second ODI against New Zeland in Pune.
New Zealand: Kane Williamson (capt), Todd Astle, Trent Boult, Tom Bruce, Colin de Grandhomme, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Tom Latham, Henry Nicholls, Adam Milne, Colin Munro, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee. "I was just saying that as a bowler when you get hit, you learn". We were trying our best and Munro was also going berserk and he was also a bit lucky as well because one or two catches here and things would have been different.
Bumrah has risen through the ranks at incredible pace and given the team management huge flexibility, allowing them to rely on him and Bhuvneshwar as their lead new-ball pair in both T20Is and ODIs while resting Shami and Umesh for the Test cricket. The swinging yorker Bhuvneshwar bowled to get Munro in the first match of this series would have made the Kiwi left-hander's appreciation of the Indian seamer's skills greater. "We complement each other and we always discuss strategies prior to a match. But he was also hitting the slower balls well". In the last T20 at Rajkot, while every other bowler went for plenty, it was the measly spells of Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar that prevented the Kiwis from posting a 200-plus total. Even though Bumrah has admitted it is tough to bowl at the end of the innings, he has picked up 23 of his 38 T20I wickets (60.5%) from overs 16 to 20. "We don't plan too much, we saw the wicket and we had a chat with our bowling coach".

"This was a hard wicket because when we were bowling with the new ball; it was coming onto the bat well and they had a good start".
When asked about the team missing the training and net session on Friday, Bumrah was quite candid.
If the match on Tuesday goes down to the last few overs with the series on the line and New Zealand chasing, they will have to contend with a bowler in top form, running in brimming with self-confidence.
