He might have been rested for the five-match ODI series against West Indies but he surely has a lot of fans. This includes a 5-year-old Pakistani boy who became the pacer’s fan during Asia Cup 2018. He went on to copy Bumrah’s bowling action and the video of the same viral. For a couple of days now, the clip has been making the rounds of social media and obviously, the pacer noticed the same.
