Jasprit Bumrah is a name which has been surfacing around the world due to the phenomenal rise in the field of cricket that the particular individual has been a part of in his short career.
Having been preferably selected for the T20Is mainly due to his unorthodox action, and ability to execute the yorker with perfection, one would have thought the young bowler's abilities will be limited to the shorter formats of the game. But it looks like most of us were wrong as Bumrah’s 2018 turned out to be a game changer for the bowler himself, as well as Team India, after being inducted to the Test squad for the country.
His tours to South Africa and England, gave the batsmen a major headache, as a substantial rise in pace and unfamiliarity with his bowling action made Bumrah got the better of them. His final frontier of the season was on the hard Australian decks where he managed to impress yet again with his line, length, pace and bounce.
Jasprit Bumrah was the go-to-guy for Captain Kohli in winning the Border Gavaskar Trophy as he scalped 21 wickets in the 4 tests which made him the joint most wicket taker along with Nathan Lyon.
With the 25 year old ace pacer now getting tons of attention from all around the world, a certain Aussie parent shared his child’s footage of emulating Jasprit Bumrah’s unique action, which the bowler was quick to acknowledge.
