Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah has become the best bowler in the world within the first few years of his career as his ability to bowl continuous yorkers at the death and generate express pace from a rather simple and short action has earned him a lot of rewards in all formats.
The youngster is currently resting from national duty while the blue shirts are competing against the West Indies side at their home. Bumrah has said that he feels humbled by the love that he receives from the younger fans especially those who try to emulate his bowling action.
“As a kid, I used to watch a lot of cricket on TV and tried to emulate bowling actions of all the top bowlers in the world. So, every day when I went out to play it was a new bowling action. There is no better feeling when kids are emulating your bowling action because I used to do that when I was growing up," he added.
The 25-year-old is expected to join the Indian squad for the 2-match Test series against the West Indies later this month as he wants to excel in the longer format as much as he has in limited overs cricket.
