One of the best pacers in Indian cricket and the leader of India’s current pace-attack, Jasprit Bumrah is renowned for his crushing yorkers. But the talented 27-year-old is also great in emulating other bowling actions. In the past, Bumrah was seen emulating other bowlers during IPL 2020 with Mumbai Indians. On Saturday, BCCI shared another video where the Indian pacer could be seen emulating Anil Kumble in the Indian nets during a training session.

Bumrah turned to spin during the practice session and rolled his arm over while Washington Sundar was batting. In the video, Bumrah was seen mimicking Indian spin legend Kumble’s bowling action. “We have all seen @Jaspritbumrah93’s fiery yorkers and sharp bouncers. Here’s presenting a never-seen-before version of the fast bowler. Boom tries to emulate the legendary @anilkumble1074’s bowling action and pretty much nails it,” BCCI captioned the video.
