Jasprit Bumrah Secrets: Indian team’s fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has confirmed his place in Team India with his superb bowling. The fast bowler has played 24 Tests, 67 ODIs and 50 T20s for the Indian team so far. Recently Bumrah has completed 100 wickets in Test matches. He did well in the Test series against England and picked up wickets with his deadly yorker. He has been troubling the batsmen with his superb yorker in T20 and ODI also. Jasprit Bumrah was seen sometime back in an episode of “What the Duck”, where he revealed many interesting things.
Indian fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah told Vikram Sathaye in an episode of “What the Duck” how his yorker started bowling. The Gujarat pacer admitted that he used to watch videos of Pakistani bowlers and as a child he thought yorker was the only option to take wickets. So, he used to try and throw the ball in the lower part of the wall of his house and thus he started learning the art of bowling yorkers.
When during the interview, Vikram Sathaye asked him what did he do with a lot of practice and focus for bowling yorkers like Wasim Akram? Bumrah said, “No, I didn’t do any of these things. I started my cricket by watching television. I used to watch cricket all day, all the time. What I used to do, I used to watch their (Pakistan bowlers) videos. Because he was the king of bowling at that time. So I used to think that he is getting wickets for yorkers. So I always thought as a kid that if I want to take wickets then yorker is the only option.
He said that when you are a kid, you can’t always go out and play. So during a hot afternoon, we had a big hall. I used to try to hit the base of the wall there. If you bowl there and there will be no noise, you can play longer. Because, if you make noise, your mother will come out and you will be beaten up. Then I started playing with tennis ball and rubber ball. That’s why I bowled like this.
