An Australian kid caught the attention of Jasprit Bumrah after a video went viral on social media of him trying to imitate the Indian fast-bowler’s bowling action.

Bumrah was the leading wicket-taker for India in the recently-concluded Border-Gavaskar Trophy and his 21 wickets played a major role in the visitors winning their first-ever Test series Down Under.

A cricket fan user posted the video on Twitter with the young kid trying to imitate Bumrah’s bowling action. He wrote: “@bhogleharsha @Jaspritbumrah93 The only problem from your great series win may be the next generation of Aussie cricketers you have inspired!”

Bumrah took note of the video and responded by writing, “The kid is so cute . Give him my best wishes.”

Veteran commentator Harsha Bhogle, who was also tagged in the post, replied by terming the kid’s effort as “excellent”.
