Have you met the five-year-old Pakistani fanboy who imitates Jasprit Bumrah to perfection? He is all of five and in the latest video, he was seen bowling with Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah’s action. Bumrah has been one of India’s go-to bowlers in the death overs in the limited overs format. He has also come of age as a Test bowler and it seems he is inspiring budding talent across the border as well. The video was shared by a Twitter handle named Umair Afridi and it read, “5 Years Old kid from pak is a big fan of Bumrah.. after watching him in the recently concluded Asia cup every time he tries to bowl like him.” Also Read - IPL 2020 Points Table Today Latest Update After Match 48: Mumbai Indians Beat Royal Challengers Bangalore to Extend Lead on No.1 Spot; Jasprit Bumrah Grabs 2nd Position in Purple Cap Tally
The kid surely promises a lot and would be interesting if he goes on to represent his country someday.
Meanwhile, Bumrah was a part of the triumphant Asia Cup team that clinched the crown for the seventh time. Bumrah is currently being rested for the first two ODIs versus the Windies keeping in mind the excessive workload India’s premier pacer has taken over the last few months.
Recently, former Pakistani pacer Aqib Javed reckoned that Bumrah’s unusual bowling action makes him prone to injures. But the pacer denied it saying, “I don’t focus on what the experts are saying or not. I focus on what has helped me and I try to focus on my body and what do I need to keep myself fit. There is not a perfect action in cricket, tell me a bowler, like that, who has not got injured. I focus on how to improve my fitness level.”
