Jasprit Bumrah try out 6 different bowling actions during Mumbai Indians net session
When Indian fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah burst into the international cricketing scene, he was known for having a slightly different bowling action along with accuracy in his bowling. Now, imagine Jasprit Bumrah bowling to batsman in IPL 2020 with further variations in his bowling action? That would be a nightmare for the opposition.
In a video posted by the Mumbai Indians on Twitter, the bowler can be seen trying out not one or two, but six different bowling styles, during a net session in the UAE. The six bowling actions are actually of former as well as current bowlers, and the franchise put the post up with a caption ‘Can you guess all 6 bowlers Boom is trying to imitate?’
The post has generated a lot of response with most fans guessing: Munaf Patel, Glenn McGrath, Mitchell Starc, Kedar Jadhav, Shreyas Gopal and Anil Kumble in the respective order. But then again, there are others who have guessed Lasith Malinga, Shane Warne and so on. Watch the video and make your own guesses?
