Jasprit Bumrah, No.1 One-day international fast bowler in present, turned 26 on Friday. Fans and Cricket fraternity the world over sent wishes to fill the social media with love and well-wishes for the Star Indian Bowler.
Mumbai Indians, the franchise he represents in the IPL, took full toll of the special occasion not only for wishing him but at the same time mocking the former Pakistani all-rounder Abdul Razzaq also.
Abdul Razzaq in a recent interview called Bumrah a ‘Baby bowler’ and that he wouldn’t have had any kind of problem facing him and could have easily dominated the Indian.
“After having faced world-class bowlers in my time, I would have had no problem against a bowler like Bumrah. The pressure would have been on him,” boasted Razzaq.
Before adding, “I have played against great bowlers like Glenn McGrath and Wasim Akram, so Bumrah is a baby bowler in front of me, and I could have easily dominated and attacked him.”
These comments stirred the social media as the fans and the Cricket world slammed Razzaq for these comments in their own way.
Here is the Mumbai Indians comment
Irfan Pathan without taking any names blasted the all-rounder on twitter, “Irfan jese bowlers hamari gali gali mein paae jate hay” par jab jab ye gallibowler inke samne khela har baar inki gilliyan nikal ke rakh di. Request to all fans not to pay any heat to those unnecessary over the top statements. Just read and ( smile)… #bumrah #ViratKohli”
Though he did not mention any name but the #Bumrah was enough indication to rip apart the egoistic self -boasting of Pakistani All-rounder.
Bumrah has been off the field due to stress fracture, one of the most important cogs in Indian Team is expected to return for the tour of New-Zealand next year.
