Team India pace bowler Jasprit Bumrah is known for his unique action in world cricket. Bumrah’s action is, even more, deceiving for the batsmen as they often get bamboozled by his yorkers. Such that his bowling action is imitated by many around the world. Just like many others, a little boy this time was seen imitating the Indian pacer’s distinct action.
Previously we saw Bumrah giving his views on the bowling action of another youngster from Australian last year. Similarly even this year a person walking on the streets in India recorded a little boy imitating his action. Bumrah was quick to retweet the tweet and also praised the little man’s efforts.

Well, this isn’t the first time someone has tried to imitate the unique bowling action of Jasprit Bumrah. Before it used to be Zaheer Khan, whose action we used to imitate but now that has now switched to Bumrah.
Jasprit Bumrah burst into scenes during the 2014 IPL, where he turned up for Mumbai Indians against RCB. He had a memorable debut as he dismissed Virat Kohli and Ab De Villiers in the same match. Following that IPL, we went on to debut for India in 2016. Subsequently making his test debut in 2018 against South Africa. As of today, Bumrah is the leader of the Indian pace attack.
After a 5 month delay, we will be able to see Bumrah back in action, as he’s all set to turn up for Mumbai Indians in the IPL this year which will be played in the UAE. He’s one of the contenders for the Purple Cap as he’s one of the highest wicket-takers every season.
