Former Indian captain and legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar wished the young pacer on his birthday in a very amusing way by saying the bowler keeps coming back to attack the batsmen just the way a boomerang does and named the boomerang ‘Jasprit Boomerang’.
Tendulkar’s tweet read, “World-class bowlers keep coming back at the batsmen just like a Boomerang! For me, you are Jasprit Boomerang! Keep making India proud. Happy Birthday, @Jaspritbumrah93.”
Bumrah got to share the field with the master blaster during his early days with the Mumbai Indians. Bumrah’s fabulous performance had earned him the nickname.
Bumrah has been out of action since September due to a back injury and post recovery he is undergoing training. The cricketer is expected to make a comeback early next year.
