Though India has said goodbye to the ICC World Cup 2019, there were many players from the Team Blue who stood out for their performances. One among them is fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah. With 18 wickets to his name, the bowler surely took the tournament by storm and grabbed attention of fans. One supporter was so impressed by Bumrah, she couldn’t help but mimic the bowler.
Shared by a Twitter user Shanta Sakkubai on July 13, a gif shows an elderly lady imitating Bumrah’s bowling style with absolute perfection. “Just like the rest of us, the mothership was so impressed with Bumrah’s performance in the world cup, that she decided to mimic his run-up,” Sakkubai wrote in the caption.
