A video going viral on social media shows a young English domestic cricketer mimicking the distinctive bowling action of the Indian star pacer, Jasprit Bumrah, the world’s No.1 Test bowler. While Bumrah has been making headlines for his exceptional performances in the ongoing Test series against England, the imitation by the English cricketer drew attention due to the striking resemblance in run-up and bowling style.
The cricketer’s run-up resembled that of Jasprit Bumrah, and his bowling action mirrored the quirky style for which the Indian pacer is known. The video created a buzz in the cricketing community. The County Championship shared the video on ‘X’ on their official social media handle and captioned it, “How’s this for an impression of Jasprit Bumrah’s bowling?”

Meanwhile, Bumrah achieved a historic feat by becoming the first Indian pacer to claim the top spot in the ICC Men’s Test Bowling Rankings. His outstanding performance in the second India vs England Test in the ongoing five-Test IND vs ENG series propelled him past Pat Cummins, Kagiso Rabada, and fellow Indian bowler Ravichandran Ashwin, marking him as the fourth Indian to reach this pinnacle after Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, and Bishan Singh Bedi.
Bumrah’s remarkable nine-wicket haul in the match, leading India to a 106-run victory and levelling the series, contributed to his rise to top in the rankings. His record-breaking achievement of becoming the fastest Indian pacer to reach 150 Test wickets further solidified his position. With a tally of 881 rating points, Bumrah now stands as the top-rated Indian pacer, with only Ashwin (904) and Jadeja (899) having accumulated more rating points.
India are gearing up for the third Test of the IND vs ENG Test series in Rajkot, set to commence on February 15 (Thursday). They are optimistic about the return of Ravindra Jadeja and KL Rahul to the series after their absence in the second Test due to injuries.
