No one would have expected that Jasprit Bumrah is going to rule the world cricket when he first appeared in the Indian Premier League for Mumbai Indians. The first three deliveries of him were knocked to the fence by Virat Kohli but what followed next was the ribbon-cutting of Bumrah’s glorious cricketing career. The Australian Glenn McGrath showers words of praise on India’s fast bowler.
He trapped Virat Kohli plumb in front of the wicket. And then, he tasted success throughout the tournament. Within a span of the time, he was asked to represent India against the Australian side for the ODI series under MS Dhoni captaincy.
After receiving the debut cap for team India, Bumrah bagged Steven Smith, as his maiden wicket. It was followed by a stunning yorker to James Faulkner, who used to be a match-winner for Australia, especially, against Indian National Cricket Team.
It has been a great ride for Jasprit Bumrah since his debut. And also, he has grown from strength to strength to take the number one position in the ICC ODI rankings chart.
