It’s nothing new to spot fans who bear more than a passing resemblance to certain cricketers sitting in the stands and enjoying the matches.

The likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag and even Yuvraj Singh have earlier posed for pictures with their lookalikes.

The latest cricketer whose doppelganger has been spotted is none other than Indian fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah. His lookalike was spotted outside the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore during the recently concluded Independence Cup.

Many Pakistan cricket fans sorely missed the presence of Indian cricketers in the recently-concluded Independence Cup against the ICC World XI.

The fans were expecting the Indian cricketers — especially the likes of Indian skipper Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni — to be a part of the team that helped mark the return of international cricket in the country.

Many of them even turned up with placards displaying their affection for the two star performers of the Indian cricket team.

India will take on Australia in the second one-day international of their five-match series in Kolkata on Thursday. They currently lead the series 1-0.
