India’s premier seamer Jasprit Bumrah is certainly one of the most lethal bowlers across all formats at this moment. His clinical line and length and the economy he maintains during the death overs has helped the Men In Blue win several contests over the years.
Because of his world-class figures, the 26-year-old has gained several fans across the globe and a recent video, where a kid from New Zealand imitating the Indian’s action is proof of it.
The video shows the kid nail Jasprit Bumrah’s action and it has taken the internet by storm, with former Kiwi cricketer Scott Styris also applauding the youngster for his perfection.
