A video of a kid emulating Jasprit Bumrah’s action on the roadside surfaced on Twitter.
Bumrah was pleased with the kid’s effort and wished him good luck.
The peculiarity of Jasprit Bumrah‘s bowling action makes him a mystery for batsmen across the world. While many doubted his longevity and raised concerns over his quirky move, Bumrah seems to have silenced his doubters with consistent performance over the years.
The 26-years-old is at the forefront of the bowling revolution under the leadership of Virat Kohli. He leads the pace-attack for India across all formats.
Along with his much-talked-about action, the sheer pace, the sideways movement he generates, and the toe-crushing yorkers that he releases at an alarming regularity make him a tough to face.
Although more than any of the aforementioned aspects of his game, it is his action that steals the limelight among cricket aficionados, especially among kids. There have been a plethora of videos on the internet of some random kid imitating Bumrah’s action in the street, home and playground.
The Indian pacer came across one such video on Wednesday (August 12), where a child in the street was trying to emulate his bowling action.
The Ahmedabad-born was mighty impressed and praised the kid’s effort. He wrote, “The future looks bright, little one! Keep at it”.
The future looks bright, little one! Keep at it 💪🏼 https://t.co/1xdtn1E77F

For Bumrah, the last year was nothing less than a rollercoaster ride. After performing brilliantly in the World Cup 2019, he was sidelined from the squad due to a terrible lower-back injury.
Since his comeback, Bumrah has been going through a lean patch in the international arena. He last appeared for Team India in a bilateral series against New Zealand in February this year. But, he would be determined to make his presence felt while donning the Mumbai Indians (MI) jersey in the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The cash-rich league is slated to commence from September 19 to November 10 in UAE.
