A 19-year-old tall, and fast bowler with a highly unorthodox action left everyone impressed after he stepped his foot in the 2013 IPL for the Mumbai Indians. When he first came to bowl, his weird bowling run-up and action took everyone by surprise.

A short run-up mixed with the extension of his right arm diagonally upwards was something that no one had seen before. He had a great ability to generate pace with his arms and didn’t need to run long like other bowlers. What was most impressive about Bumrah was his line, length, and sheer consistency.

He began his IPL journey with the prized wicket of Virat Kohli and made his mark in the tournament. His toe-crushing yorkers became a nightmare for even the strongest of batter and he quickly rose up the ranks under the grooming of fellow MI teammate, Lasith Malinga. The Sri Lankan veteran has had a huge role in Bumrah’s accuracy with the yorker.

Bumrah became Mumbai’s most reliable bowler by 2017 and even pulled the team from the jaws of defeat with his wittiness at the death. It was because of the IPL that which he made his place in the Indian national team. India’s search for a reliable fast bowler who could open the innings as well as bowl at the death ended with Bumrah and he is considered a key player for the side. Bumrah has played 120 matches in the IPL and has picked up 145 wickets for the Mumbai Indians.

He will be the one to look out for in the upcoming 2024 IPL and would like to show his magic with the ball once again as he comes back into action after a long time. Here, we focus on Bumrah’s astonishing IPL career, looking at his best performances, records, and more.
