Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah is probably the find of team India over the last one year. A death over specialist, who is equally effective in the middle overs or while starting with the proceedings with the white ball. He has got many fans and followers, but the Indian bowler follows Manchester United’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Bumrah seems to be an admirer of Zlatan, who is well known for his catchy quotes and dominance in the field. Bumrah posted a picture on Instagram recently, from his workout session, which read”Lions dont compare themselves with humans “- Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Classic Zlatan quote wish i had the same charisma which he has. #zlatanfan #fitness #hardwork.”

Off-period post victory

The Indian cricketers are currently enjoying day offs, ahead of the important limited overs series against Australia, starting on September 17. Virat Kohli led India had a dominant show in Sri Lanka recently. They handed a whitewash to the hosts in the Test series, and went on to register a clean sweep in the ODI series followed by a win in the T20I game.

Bumrah’s bowling partner Mohammed Shami is confident of a good show, and he didn’t shy away from playing a bit of those mind games early on.”We have some plans for each of their batsmen — (especially Smith and Warner). There’s always some new plan in place. The key is about executing it on the field,” Shami told reporters at the Eden Gardens on the sidelines of the Bengal Ranji team’s training session. “It’s a matter of pride to play an ODI at my home ground. I hope to make it count and deliver for my team,” Shami, who last played an ODI against West Indies in July, said. “Australia are a strong team. It’s difficult to say that (clean sweep) but we will try our best for a good show. The conditions will play a big role,” Shami added.
