Representing the national team is a dream for many players. Making their debut a memorable one isn't that easy. But this pacer from Gujarat called Jasprit Bumrah, has had a 'Dream debut' in all the formats of the of the game.
With his unique action and a good pace variation, he has cemented his place in the Indian Cricket team. The fact that he has got the wickets some of the best in his very first game in all the formats, needs to be noted. Let us now look at his Dream Journey.
He started his IPL journey as a 19-year-old with the Mumbai Indians in 2013. He made his debut in the same season and showed some promise in his bowling with some pace and swing. He grabbed eyeballs with his slingy action and variety in delivering the ball.
He got three wickets for 32 runs in his debut match against RCB on April 4, 2013, at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. Virat Kohli was his first ever IPL victim. He followed Kohli's wickets with the wickets of Mayank Agarwal and Karun Nair.
Though he competed in just a couple of games in his debut season, he became only the second bowler in the side to get three wickets on the debut. He was bought again by the Mumbai Indians in 2014 for a massive 1.2 crores and since then there has been no looking back for Bumrah.
He has become one of Mumbai’s death-over specialists. Piking up the wicket of a batsman like Virat is not that easy, especially when you are playing your first match. But this guy has made that look easy by doing it in his very first IPL match. What a way to launch his IPL career!
