A recent clip of the flamboyant Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya imitating the bowling action and celebration style of the premier pacer, Jasprit Bumrah has gained traction in the last few hours. The clip is shot in the practice nets. It seems that 28-year-old Hardik was preparing for the upcoming 2022 Asia Cup there.

Hardik himself shared the video on Tuesday on his Instagram, and in it, he can be seen imitating the slingy action of Jasprit Bumrah (although without a run-up) and then going on to celebrate like him –with a total lack of emotion and both his hands spread out– as if nothing really happened. He captioned the post as “How’s the form, Boom? @jaspritb1”, demanding feedback from the star bowler.


Notably, Hardik’s demand was fulfilled by the pacer in no time as Jasprit Bumrah acknowledged the imitation from the all-rounder. The golden comment from Jassi Bumrah read, “Bowling action 🎯 celebration 🤷‍♀ @hardikpandya93”.

Krunal Pandya and Kieron Pollard also responded to the clip from Hardik, writing, “Zlatan”, referring to Sweden forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic who celebrates his goals in a similar spread-arms style. Meanwhile, it has to be pointed out that while Hardik Pandya has been included in Team India’s 15-man 2022 Asia Cup squad, Jasprit Bumrah isn’t a part of it.

Bumrah is currently recovering from a back injury at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru alongside fellow India pacer Harshal Patel.

The Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) has allowed Bumrah and Harshal ample time so that the duo can be match ready for the 2022 T20 World Cup that is scheduled to kickstart in October. Team India will be looking for redemption in the upcoming T20 WC after their group-stage exit in the 2021 edition.
