Playing Bumrah is one of the most difficult player to play on the 22 yards because of the quality and variations he brings to his bowling. And with that being a fact, why would not any cricket aspirant in the world want to add those qualities to his arsenal?
Happens to be, some youngsters are already trying to imitate his action on the field. Former New Zealand coach Mike Hesson on Saturday retweeted a video that shows a young boy from New Zeland perfectly imitating Bumrah’s bowling action.
“How good is this kids impersonation of @Jaspritbumrah93 in Auckland. @BCCI @BLACKCAPS #woweee,” wrote Ollie Pringle on Twitter while sharing the video.
And here is the same:
Netizens and some folks from the cricket arena were bamboozled after watching the video and have a word or two to share.

Jasprit Bumrah is currently in Auckland as a part of India’s ODI squad against New Zealand. After a 5-0 T20 series whitewash, New Zealand have come stronger in ODIs beating India in the first ODI.
In the second ODI, India is currently ailing at 180/7 and needs 94 runs in 71 balls to keep the series alive.
