Jasprit Bumrah, during the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 final, overstepped when he got the wicket of Fakhar Zaman.

India seamer Jasprit Bumrah, who has been rested for the ongoing tour of West Indies, was not pleased with Jaipur traffic police advertisement. In a large billboard, a picture of Bumrah overstepping has been used. The text next to it reads, “Don’t cross the line. You know it can be costly”.

Bumrah, during the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 final, overstepped when he got the wicket of Fakhar Zaman. The left-hander was in single-digits then and made most of the early life to score a match-winning hundred. In reply to the mammoth 338 posted by Pakistan, India lost early wickets and never posed any challenge with the bat. While Bumrah feels it was not in good taste, the comments on the post are otherwise. Most of the users have asked the seamer to take humour in the right spirit, and felt nothing disrespectful.

This is what Bumrah tweeted with the image of the ad, “@traffic_jpr well done Jaipur traffic police this shows how much respect you get after giving your best for the country.”

“No offence,fine it is. Wot disrespect in it.? Everyone gives their best to their Nation,jpr Police too. Cricketers shud stop acting special,” said one of the user. “That’s not even close to disrespecting. Didn’t it turn costly to cross the line? What’s wrong if it can be a good example for others?,” read another tweet.

After a hectic season, where he played the IPL and turned out in Indian blue for the ICC Champions Trophy, Bumrah was rested for the five ODIs and only T20I against West Indies. Not only Bumrah, his Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma too was rested for the short limited-overs series. India commence their campaign, without a coach, in the first ODI at Port of Spain on Friday. The series will end with the only T20I.

    Timely and great ad. Kudos to the Jaipur police! There is nothing offensive in the ad for Bumrah to cry about. We Indians don't understand humour and are too thin skinned.

      Bumrah........ you are not serving anything to country, you are just giving entertainment, Cricket win is not an Olympic Medal honor so stop saying that. Also, you are getting paid in lacs per match so you did nothing right giving so many extras in match.

        Even Chetan Sharma was haunted with such reactions for his last ball six which Have Mi a's hit to win the match for Pak in 1986....Take it in your stride Bumrah..... You are a very good bowler

          It's very easy to comment or criticize others. In 60 balls of spell if someone make 1 mistake then what were the others doing with 240 balls and 300 balls with bat? Other bowlers or our world class batsmens could have rectified Bumrah's mistake. You know what we Indians are very professional in trolling and criticizing others and same time we are talking about tolerance.

              Bumrah do not be disheartened with the comments as it will take sometime to forget turning points of the match.Not only you but our leading batsmen and bowlers including the captain have miserably failed to deliver at the crucial hours.These are lessons for you to avoid such mistakes in future.

                  Dear Bumrah, Your overstepping has cost us the match, a sign of indiscipline, not following the basics correct! No wonder, you are led by a precocious Captain who thinks nothing of insulting the most successful talented Coach to date and thus your protest at Jaipur Police, which believes in educating people through most pampered undeserving heroes of the youth of nation!
