Jasprit Bumrah is one of the best pacers of present times and at the moment, he is doing a good job for his Mumbai Indians team in the IPL 2020. However, one more thing which makes him stand apart from other bowlers is his unusual bowling action. In the past also, we have seen videos in which kids are trying to copy the bowling action of Bumrah but now a video is going viral on the Internet in which an international bowler is seen imitating Jasprit Bumrah’s bowling action.
Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Mumbai Indians (MI) played a match against each other on Sunday (Oct 25) at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. Before the match, both the teams had a warm-up session on the field and it was when the RR pacer Jofra Archer imitated Jasprit Bumrah. It is a very short clip but it is getting a lot of love online.
