Indian cricketer Jasprit Bumrah, who represents Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Indian Premier League, shared a mysterious Instagram story that has created a buzz on social media amidst the ongoing IPL trade and transfer period. Bumrah posted an anonymous quote on his handle that reads as: “Silence is sometimes the best answer.”
The post instantly went viral and it raised a lot of questions about the pacer’s future with Mumbai Indians. Bumrah’s cryptic post came after Hardik Pandya was traded from Gujarat Titans to his former franchise Mumbai Indians.
Is Jasprit Bumrah Leaving MI For RCB? What Went Wrong?
The return of Hardik Pandya to Mumbai Indians from Gujarat Titans has sent shockwaves through the cricketing world. It marked a significant transfer as Pandya moved from the Titans to the Paltans. With the transfer window still active, there is a possibility of additional trades before the IPL 2024 auction.
Fans are connecting the enigmatic story to Hardik Pandya’s comeback to MI. The sentiment on social media among supporters suggests that Bumrah may be displeased with Pandya’s return, or the fast bowler might be leaving the Mumbai Indians camp and join some other franchise like Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Nevertheless, all of these speculations are merely rumors and only time will tell what’s written in stars for the talented bowler. Check out some reactions from the fans:
Based on Bumrah’s previous Instagram updates and Stories, it seems he frequently shares such quotes in his Stories to drown out external distractions. Cricketers often face criticism and abuse throughout their careers. Bumrah’s Story could be a response to trolls who are attributing him as one of the reasons for not winning the World Cup. It’s worth noting that Bumrah took two wickets in the World Cup final.
Bumrah had a fantastic performance in the 2023 World Cup, where he took 20 wickets. Playing in all matches, he made significant contributions to Team India. Bumrah made a comeback to international cricket after a year-long break to recover from a back injury. He also missed the entire 2023 season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). However, Bumrah is now fit and is all set to represent MI in IPL 2024.
