Yuvi Trolls the Pacer!!
Bumrah, who is currently the top-ranked ODI bowler, enjoyed a sensational run in the year gone by where he tormented many potent batting line-ups and guided his side to several triumphs. However, the Gujarat-born pacer sustained a lower-back in September 2019 and was out of action for more than three months. Nevertheless, he made a stunning comeback in the T20I series against Sri Lanka and will eye to replicate his heroics in India’s upcoming assignments too. He will be seen in action during the three-match ODI series between India and Australia, starting from January 14.
