Jasprit Bumrah has left everyone in his awe with his bowling at the international level. Not many gave him a chance after watching the youngster bowl with a weird action during the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2013. Many were of the opinion that the opponents will figure him out after a while and he will also have injury issues due to his action. But Bumrah has proved everyone wrong and has improved leaps and bounds over the years.
He’s now India’s best bowler across all the formats and his action is famous worldwide. The new generation is trying to imitate his bowling action in order to impress many. Rather recently during the World Cup, a video of an elderly woman trying to bowl like Bumrah had gone viral.
Bangladesh is now likely to get its own version of Jasprit Bumrah it seems. In a video going viral on Facebook, a young bowler is seen bowling exactly like the 25-year-old Indian and has impressed his teammates. If he continues to bowl well and perform when it matters, good days wouldn’t be far away for the youngsters and it could be one inspiring story.

Bumrah enhances his reputation
India is managing Jasprit Bumrah’s workload extremely well and was rested for the limited-overs leg of the West Indies tour after the World Cup. He made his comeback for the two-match Test series which also marked the start of India’s journey in World Test Championship. Bumrah got into his groove in the practice game and straight-away stamped his authority in the series opener in Antigua.
Though Ishant Sharma shined in the first innings, Bumrah found his mark in the second and rattled the opposition in no time. He returned with the magical figures of 5/7 as the Caribbeans were skittled for just 100 runs to lose the Test match by a massive 318-run margin. Jasprit Bumrah is now the first Asian bowler to pick five-wicket haul each in Australia, West Indies, South Africa and England in the whites.
