Jasprit Bumrah has one of the most quirky run-ups and bowling actions in the world. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) shared a video where Ravindra Jadeja and Jasprit Bumrah are seen copying each other’s actions in the nets. Prithvi Shaw also joined the party, mimicking both the bowlers.
“Whose bowling actions are @Jaspritbumrah93, @imjadeja, and @PrithviShaw imitating?” the BCCI captioned its tweet.

While Bumrah does a better job at imitating the all-rounder, Jadeja tries to copy Bumrah’s run-up but finishes with his left-arm off-spin. Shaw also tried to copy the bowling actions of Bumrah, Jadeja, and Yuzvendra Chahal.
The Indian team is currently in Sydney, undergoing their quarantine-cum-training period ahead of their two-month-long tour of Australia. The tour starts with a three-match ODI series beginning on Friday.
First two ODIs will be hosted by the Sydney Cricket Ground while the third ODI will be played at the Manuka Oval. The One-Dayers will be followed by the T20 International (T20I) series, which will again see one game in Canberra and two in Sydney.
The tour will conclude with the four-match Test series, starting with the day-night Test at the Adelaide Oval. The second match will be the traditional Boxing-Day Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, followed by Tests in Sydney and Brisbane.
