VIDEO: Internet unearths unique gully cricket bowler, is BCCI watching?


The internet can unearth some real talent in the hour of need, and we find out why. Ever since the Indian Cricket Team crashed out of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, after being beaten by New Zealand in the semi-finals, there has been a sea of suggestions by the fans towards the BCCI.

In a video that is doing the rounds in social media- a bowler can be seen delivering the ball in a unique action. Micro-blogging site Twitter is flooded with reactions from viewers. The clip was captured during a gully cricket game. Interestingly, the batsman looks to be in a spot of bother as he tries to decode the unique action.

Internet goes bonkers over unique bowling action

Certain cricket fans have even asked the BCCI to take a look at the promising talent. The Indian think-tank has been in hot waters after making certain controversial selection calls during India’s World Cup campaign. Ambati Rayudu was overlooked on two occasions before the batter called time on his career. The selectors faced the music as Virat Kohli’s men failed to lift the coveted trophy.

Among the latest crop of cricketers- India’s Jasprit Bumrah bowls with interesting action. The paceman was first spotted by the IPL franchise-Mumbai Indians. He ended the recently concluded World Cup as one of the highest wicket-takers in the tournament.

We have witnessed many such wonders in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Whilst an IPL contract looks like a distant dream for the internet sensation at the moment, it won’t be surprising if the scouts keep an eye on the talent.
