Jasprit Bumrah is a rockstar. He is not your usual fast bowler. He can hit the yorker length at will and haunts batsmen whether he is bowling with the new ball or in the death overs. The unorthodox action makes him a fan-favourite as kids try to copy him even if it is tough to pull off.
Last year, a video a Pakistani kid trying to imitate him surfaced on social media. Then came the Australian kid who tried to copy the 25-year-old and on instances tripped over in order to that. And now comes a young cricketer from a country which isn’t exactly known for producing cricketers, let alone menacing fast bowlers.
A video posted by Hong Kong cricket on Twitter shows a bowler playing in a Under-13 league doing the Bumrah bowling action. The result is also similar as the batsmen had no idea where the ball went and ended up missing it outside the off stump.
Here’s the video that has gone viral on Twitter:

In the video, not just the batsman but the wicketkeeper had trouble collecting the ball. This kid can go places if he continues to bowl like this and maybe one day represent his national team.
Here are other kids who tried to imitate him. Who did it the best?
