After making his India debut in 2016, Bumrah’s unorthodox action and natural pace, which he generates with a short run-up, have baffled many. Bumrah’s action, which was frowned upon in his initial days, is so unique that fans have been trying to copy it ever since he made his international debut. Jasprit Bumrah, the top-ranked bowler in ICC ODI rankings, ended his World Cup 2019 campaign with 18 wickets from nine matches.
Recently, a fan shared a video in which her mother has almost perfected Bumrah’s unique action and the Indian pace spearhead appreciated the effort.
In the video, an elderly woman can be seen imitating Bumrah’s bowling action. “Just like the rest of us, the mothership was so impressed with Bumrah’s performance in the world cup, that she decided to mimic his run-up,” read the fan’s tweet.
Bumrah watched the video and was polite enough to reply. “This made my day,” Bumrah replied.
This made my day 😁 https://t.co/ZPLq0gSVzk— Jasprit Bumrah (@Jaspritbumrah93) July 13, 2019
