The obsession of cricket in the 90s was growing rapidly like centuries of Sachin Tendulkar. This was the time when the addiction to ODI’s was overgrowing on youngsters in the same way as today T20 cricket is overgrowing. There were many Australian fast bowlers in this period and in the subsequent years whose bowling was admired by Indian fans also. Glenn McGrath, Jason Gillespie, Brett Lee, Mitchell Johnson and later Mitchell Starc, who is still part of the Australian team. But it was never so that an Indian fast bowler has a huge fan following among Australian cricket team fans.
Cricket fans may have understood what we’re talking about. Yes, we’re talking about Jasprit Bumrah who is a new sensation in the Indian cricket team. Jasprit is not only a fast bowler who can bowl 150 km speed delivery but his line and length are also very accurate. This is the reason why he is admired by all worldwide.
We are discussing all this because a video of Aussie kid is going viral these days, who is imitating Bumrah and everyone loved it. Especially, Indian fans are overwhelmed to watch this video and feeling proud about Bumrah. Jasprit Bumrah also reacted to this video and tweeted, “The kid is so cute. give him my best wishes.”
The kid is so cute . Give him my best wishes 😊.

The video is shared by Michael Curtin who’s the father of the kid. He tweeted the video of his son and wrote, “ The only problem from your great series win may be the next generation of Aussie cricketers you have inspired.”
He also tagged Harsha Bhogle and Jasprit Bumrah.

And Atul Bhogle admired Aussies as they are very gracious in own defeat.
This is what I admire about the Aussies. They are very gracious in defeat, especially if the Cricket has been good. Noticed during the series in 2001 and 2005 Ashes as well.
