Bumrah's stock has risen over time

It's going to be a tough battle between the two.

During the 2-1 Test series win against Australia, Kohli had heaped praise on Bumrah and said he wouldn't want to face him.

Bumrah has risen as a bowler and is currently the number one in ICC ODI Rankings for bowlers.

In Test cricket, the right-handed bowler picked up 48 wickets in 2018.

Kohli has been on top gear himself

Meanwhile, Kohli has been plundering runs at will. He is the world's best ranked batsman in both Tests and ODIs. The 30-year-old topped the charts in 2018 across both formats in terms of scoring runs.
