Team India has been going through rigorous training in the nets in Sydney for the Australian tour, starting from November 27 in Sydney. India will be resuming international cricket after a gap of nine months and will feature in three ODIs and as many T20Is followed by a four-match Border Gavaskar Trophy. As the players assembled on the match field to practice for the upcoming highly-anticipated matches, three players namely Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja, and Prithvi Shaw decided to take a break.
The premier Indian cricketers was seen imitating the bowling actions of other veterans. While the opening batsman Prithvi rolled his arms in the training session to mimic the actions of legendary spinners Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan and India’s Anil Kumble, Bumrah perfectly copied the bowling action of teammate Jadeja. On the other hand, Jaddu just returned the favor by copying Bumrah’s style.
The video of the three players having fun in the nets with the ball was uploaded by the official Twitter handle of the Indian cricket team. While uploading the clip, the handle left it upon the viewers to guess the bowlers the three players are imitating.

All three players Jadeja, Bumrah, and Shaw were last seen playing in the just-concluded 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). While Shaw IPL franchise Delhi Capitals finished the season as the runners-up, Bumrah’s team Mumbai Indians registered their fifth title win.
Jadeja’s Chennai Super Kings, on the other hand, had a forgettable outing in the IPL 2020 as they finished at the second-last position on the points table with 12 points. Both Bumrah and Jadeja had a decent outing in the IPL 2020 as the former picked 27 wickets in 15 matches and finished second to Kagiso Rabada in terms of taking most wickets in the tournament.
Ravindra Jadeja also had 6 wickets under his belt in 14 matches along with scoring 232 runs with the willow. Shaw, on the other hand, had a dismal outing in the tournament as he amassed just 228 runs in 13 matches and thus was dropped from the playing XI towards the business end.
