Jasprit Bumrah is not just a top class pace bowler, he is also someone with a lot of sportsman spirit. An example of this was seen yesterday during the IPL 2019 final between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians. During the penultimate over, Bumrah did not get angry on wicket-keeper Quinton De Kock after he missed to grab an easy delivery which went for a four. On the other hand, Bumrah consoled him by giving him a hug.

The event occurred when Bumrah stuck to some tight bowling in the 19th over, after CSK needed 18 off the last two overs. Bumrah went well with the first five balls, giving out just 5 runs. On the 5th ball, he even managed to dismiss Dwayne Bravo through catch. When Ravindra Jadeja arrived to play the final ball, with CSK needing 13 off 7 balls, Bumrah bowled a back of a length delivery. The left-handed batsman could not understand the ball and missed it, however, even De Kock missed to catch the ball properly. The ball hit his gloves and went back to the boundary in byes, erupting a huge noise among the crowd.

While we can assume that Mumbai Indians fans would have been very angry due to the event and some may have also criticised the South African youngster just after his fault, Bumrah came with a very kind gesture. He didn’t lash out at him, did not even argued with him. Rather he put his hands over his shoulders and smiled, consoling him that it’s okay.  Even people watching the match found the gesture very pleasing and applauded Bumrah for his sportsman spirit. Have a look at some of the tweets praising Bumrah.
