Jasprit Bumrah is one of the most lethal bowlers in the world and has risen to fame in no time. While the cricket fraternity is impressed with his toe-wreaking yorker and wicket-taking abilities, his unconventional bowling action also grabbed a lot of limelight. In a fresh video doing the rounds on social media, Australian spinner Nic Maddinson was seen imitating the Indian pacer during a Sheffield Shield game.
In the video, which is shared by Cricket Australia on Twitter, the slow left-arm spinner was seen channelising his inner Bumrah during a Test match between Western Australia and Victoria at WACA Ground in Perth. The incident occurred during 160th over of West Australia’s innings when Nic Maddinson left everyone in splits after copying Jasprit Bumrah’s orthodox bowling action. Watching Maddinson imitating Bumrah, commentators and his teammates laughed around, and the video immediately went viral.

After being invited to bat first, Western Australia scored 386 runs in their first innings and were able to gain a crucial 80-run lead as Victoria bundled out for 306 in their first innings. WA carried on their super form in the second innings as well and declared their innings on 400/7. Cameron Bancroft, Sam Whiteman and Aaron Hardie reached a three-figure mark in the match, while Will Sutherland was the lone bowler to take a five-wicket haul.
