Jasprit Bumrah like Hardik Pandya and Kuldeep Yadav is a key fixture in the Indian limited overs side. And he proved his worth again in Sri Lanka when he bagged the man of the series on the back of good bowling. He did not let his form dip, now that Australia is in India. He bowled rather well in the first One-Day International against Australia, which India won by 26 runs. It was a rain-truncated game and the Indian bowlers did the trick when India bowled second. Indian skipper Virat Kohli has already mentioned the importance of the youngsters looking to the 2019 cricket World Cup.
We have seen many Sachin Tendulkar lookalikes and recently we also saw a Virat Kohli lookalike, who was a Pakistani pizza delivery boy. But this time Jasprit Bumrah is making news for a very uncanny reason. Bumrah has a lookalike of him in Pakistan, who was also present to see the World XI take on Pakistan and that is where he was spotted at the Gadaffi Stadium.
The Facebook page of Greet Team Pakistan uploaded the picture and the post read, “Thank You Jasprit Bumrah for coming to Pakistan to watch World XI vs Pakistan. You always support Pakistan in the big events. Thank You, Love, from Pakistan.”
Recently, Pakistan hosted a World XI team for a 3T20 series at the Gadaffi Stadium. This tournament was the revival of cricket in Pakistan after matches were banned in Pakistan in 2008 following a terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan bus which was headed for the Gadaffi Stadium, some players also were minorly injured. World XI visiting Pakistan is a big news for Pakistani cricket fans, who must have been dearly been waiting for the day.
ICC is in talks with PCB for further international matches to be held in Pakistan.
