India vs New Zealand: Virat Kohli mimics Jasprit Bumrah's bowling action

0 votes

ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: Virat Kohli was in high spirits as India restricted New Zealand to 211 for 6 in 46.1 overs before rain forced officials to move the semi-final into the reserve day.

With his unconventional bowling action and unplayable yorkers at extreme pace, Indian fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has emerged as one of the best bowlers in the world in the modern game.


Bumrah takes an easy run-up with both arms out in front during his delivery stride and then releases the ball at a 45 degree angle.


Many videos have also surfaced on the social media where young kids have been seen imitating Bumrah's bowling action.


Ahead of the World Cup 2019 semi-final between India and New Zealand, Virat Kohli was spotted emulating Jasprit Bumrah's unique bowling style and his wicket celebration.


In the ongoing World Cup 2019, Bumrah has reached several career milestones. The 25-year-old became the second fastest Indian, after Mohammed Shami, to complete 100 wickets in one-day international cricket.


Later, the young Indian speedster, with his impressive average of 21.6, became the first Indian bowler to enter the list of top-ten pacers with the best bowling average in One-Day Internationals (ODIs).


During the first semi-final of World Cup 2019 on Tuesday, Jasprit Bumrah gave India an early breakthrough when he sent back New Zealand opener Martin Gutpill for 1 run in his second over.


However, rain forced the semi-final match to be called off after 46.1 overs of the New Zealand innings were bowled. The Kiwis were 211 for 5 before the match was suspended to be continued on the Reserve Day.


On Wednesday, the game will be resumed from the point where it was left on the scheduled day. Bhuvneshwar will bowl to Ross Taylor, first ball tomorrow, which will be over number 46.2.
