Team India suffered an embarrassing defeat in the first Test match of the ongoing Border Gavaskar Trophy against Australia in Adelaide. However, a cute little fan of India’s frontline bowler Jasprit Bumrah has been able to spread smiles all over.
During the Adelaide Test, a small boy named Jiyan from ‘Bharat Army’ – Team India’s global supporters’ group – came to support his hero in the stands. He was spotted pronouncing Bumrah’s name in the most attractive manner.
Bharat Army shared a video of a fan naming Jiyan shouting Bumrah on their official Twitter handle. In the video, the little fan can be seen supporting his favourite cricketer and pronouncing Bumrah in his own toddler ways.

All eyes would be on Bumrah in MCG
Ahead of the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne starting from December 26, the Indian team is working hard on nets to get into the groove.
The absence of Mohammed Shami has put more pressure on Bumrah. Fans would be expecting from the Bumrah to deliver and shine for the visitors at Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).
The positive thing for Bumrah is that he has a pretty good record at the Boxing Day Test when the last time India met Australia down under. During the 2018-19 tour, Bumrah had taken nine wickets in the MCG Test at an impressive average of 9.55 and a remarkable strike-rate of 23.2.
