Jasprit Bumrah was India’s top-performer in ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 as the men in blue crashed out of the semi-finals following an 18-run defeat to New Zealand despite Bumrah’s brilliance with the ball. Team India has since returned back home and have a couple to weeks to recuperate before leaving for the tour of West Indies. The fast bowler on Wednesday shared a selfie of himself resting, with a popular quote from Napoleon Bonaparte as a caption on social media.

The 25-year-old finished CWC 2019 with 18 wickets from nine games making him India’s highest wicket-taker at the 2019 Cricket World Cup. “The best cure for the body is a quiet mind” captioned Bumrah to his post.

There have been reports of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) wanting to rest him and regular captain Virat Kohli for the tour of West Indies. But recent reports suggest that the board has now taken a U-turn and will send a full-strength team for the full-fledged bilateral series.
His stock as India’s leading bowler in all three formats of the game has seen incredible rise ever since the youngster turned up in Australia to play despite jet-lag in 2016 amidst an injury-crisis in the Indian cricket team. Not given much chance by experts for his uncanny action, Bumrah has surprised everybody with his pin-perfect Yorkers and glimpses were once again visible in CWC 2019.
Meanwhile, India will next be seen action when they play West Indies in the Caribbean Island. The bilateral series will involve three T20s, three ODIs and two Test matches. The series will kick-start with the T20 series with the first match scheduled to be played on October 3, 2019.
