We think it is safe to say that Indian medium-fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah had left a mark on the Australian cricketing fans after his historic performance in the 4-game Border-Gavaskar Test series.
It is a well know fact that Bumrah has a rather unorthodox bowling action, which clearly seemed to have worked in his favour and also for his team as they won the series 2-1.
What nobody, not even Bumrah could have expected was exactly how much was his style loved by his Aussie fans.
On Wednesday, an Australian man by the name of Michael Curtin, who clearly loves a good game of bat and ball, uploaded a video of his son trying to mimic Bumrah's bowling action in his backyard.January 9, 2019
The video went viral as soon as it touched Twitter as fans from all over the world appreciated the youngster's enthusiasm.
When Bumrah, who was tagged in the video, saw it, he couldn't help but reply to the extremely entertaining tweet.
The kid is so cute . Give him my best wishes ð.— Jasprit bumrah (@Jaspritbumrah93) January 9, 2019
This video is probably the best example of how cricket has brought the world a lot more closer than it used to be.
While a decade ago, Indians grew up trying to imitate Brett Lee and Shane Warne, now, the Indians players have the same level of love and respect in the eyes of cricket followers worldwide.
The bowler has been given a well-deserved break during the ODI series between India and Australia starting tomorrow. For now, Bumrah could maybe give some coaching classes to the kid.
