Ever since Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah has made his debut in international arena, his unusual bowling action has become quite famous and many across the world try to copy it. A video of a 5-year-old from Pakistan trying to copy Bumrah’s bowling action has gone viral on social media. The small boy’s action has got internet talking. A Twitter user named Umair Afridi has shared the video and writes, “The kid is a big fan of the Indian bowler and tries to bowl like him every time after watching him in action in the Asia Cup held last month.”

Watch video below:

Afridi while sharing the video tagged Bumrah, who was amazed and remembered his young days. Replying to the video, Bumrah wrote, “As a kid, I remember how I used to copy the actions of my cricketing heroes. It’s a wonderful feeling to see kids copying my action today.”

Bumrah made his ODI debut in 2016 and every time he takes on field, leaves no option but to get impressed by the bowler. As of now, keeping next month’s Australia tour in mind, Bumrah has been rested for the series against West Indies.
