BCCI posted a video of Jaspreet Bumrah, writing, ‘We have seen Jaspreet Bumrah’s fire-breathing yorker and fast bouncer. Now see his undiscovered style here. Jasprit Bumrah is mimicking the action of legendary leg-spinner Anil Kumble.
Like Kumble, Bumrah is a big match winner of Team India
Please tell Anil Kumble has been one of the biggest match winners in India. This legendary leg-spinner took 619 Test wickets in his name. His name is the record of taking 10 wickets in an innings. In 1999, Anil Kumble did this feat at the Ferozeshah Kotla ground. Like Kumble, now Jasprit Bumrah has also become a match winner for Team India.
