Jasprit Bumrah, the Indian pacer, is considered to be one of the best pacers of the present times and what makes him stand apart from his counterparts is his ability to take wickets in the critical phases and his unusual action.
He was first noticed when he made his debut in the IPL for Mumbai Indians and soon in 2016, he got a berth in the Indian squad. Soon, Bumrah earned the reputation of a lethal bowler in the shorter formats and in 2018, he made his debut in test matches on the South Africa tour and impressed everyone by troubling the batsmen.
Bumrah’s unusual bowling action should also be given credit for him garnering much attention in very less time and many times we have seen kids copying him. Recently, a Twitter user has shared a video in which a kid is seen copying Jasprit Bumrah’s bowling action on a footpath in Mumbai.
The video went viral soon and it was noticed by the speedster as well. The Indian pacer shared the video with caption, “The future looks bright, little one! Keep at it” and he also posted a flexing muscles emoji.
Here is the tweet shared by Jasprit Bumrah:
The future looks bright, little one! Keep at it 💪🏼 https://t.co/1xdtn1E77F

It was soon noticed by the former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh who is ranked among the best all-rounders that India has ever produced. Yuvi commented “Same” which means he is also giving the same wishes to the kid.
Check out the tweet of Yuvraj Singh:

After a long break from cricket, just like other cricketers, Jasprit Bumrah is also pretty excited for playing the IPL 2020 which will take place in UAE from Sept 18 to Nov 10. He is an important player of Mumbai Indians and a lot will depend on him if his team has to win the IPL 2020. Mumbai Indians is the most successful team as it has won the league four times under the leadership of Rohit Sharma.
