Yuzvendra Chahal Reacts On A New Zealand’s Kid’s Video Who Copied Jasprit Bumrah’s Action:The Indian team is currently battling New Zealand away from home. The Men in Blue comprehensively whitewashed the Kiwis in the T20I series as they recorded a historic 5-0 win.
However, the hosts seem to have gained their momentum back in the 50-overs series. In the short 3-match series, New Zealand have already taken a 2-0 lead. The 3rd ODI match will be played on 11th February but it is not a New Zealand international player who has gained the world’s attention after the series against India.
A young kid from the nation has taken the internet by storm by perfectly replicating Indian fast bowler, Jasprit Bumrah’s action in a video. The video had gone viral prior to the second one-dayer between the two sides and it was even shown on national television by the official broadcasters. Host Simon Doull was present with the man himself, Bumrah and Indian leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal when this video went on air. You can watch the video here.

Jasprit Bumrah is truly a once in a lifetime bowler as his action has seized every budding cricketer’s attention. Earlier, there was a time when the Indian kids used to impersonate the likes of Sir Richard Hadlee, Brett Lee and Glenn McGrath but the time seems to have changed now as the foreign kids are replicating the Indian fast bowler’s actions. When Bumrah was shown this video, he reacted with a smile while Chahal mentioned that the kid bowled in a better way than Bumrah.
“It’s better than Bumrah,” the Indian leggie said.
Although Bumrah is a world-class bowler, he is yet to pick up a wicket in the ongoing ODI series. The right-arm pacer has gone wicketless in the first two ODIs but he will look to bounce back in style when India faces off against New Zealand in the series finale.
