Jasprit Bumrah is not only the No.1 ranked ODI bowler at the moment, but he is also wreaking havoc in the ongoing ICC World Cup 2019. He picked a four-wicket haul against Bangladesh in a must-win encounter and steered India to semis. Besides India, only Australia made the last 4.

The right-arm quick is the joint highest wicket-taker for India tied with Mohammad Shami on 14 wickets. Bumrah was the hero in India’s close win over Afghanistan, as he bowled a brilliant penultimate over to leave Shami with 16 runs to defend in the last over. He is a terrific role model for the young kids who are looking to take up the sport seriously and it was endearing to see an English colt copying the Indian pacer.

A Twitter user by the name Chris Bunting shared a video on his account which mentioned that his elder son is starting out in cricket and wanted to perfect his bowling action which has been modelled on Jasprit Bumrah. Bunting also tagged Bumrah, India skipper Kohli and former England captain Michael Vaughan in the tweet as well.

Bunting’s tweet read, “My eldest son told me he wanted to practice his #Bumrah @Jaspritbumrah93 technique in the garden this evening! He was causing me all sorts of problems… He’s getting into his @imVkohli @MichaelVaughan”

Meanwhile, Bumrah and Indian team restored parity with a win against Bangladesh to get their World Cup campaign in order, after the defeat to hosts England in their last game. Bumrah picked up wickets in death overs with yorkers. The main architect of the win was opener Rohit Sharma, who became only the second batsman to make four centuries in a single edition of World Cup and also surpassed David Warner in this tournament. Indian still has a match against Sri Lanka in hand, which will be played on July 6 at the Headingley ground in Leeds.
