It goes without saying that Jasprit Bumrah’s peculiar bowling action is one of his strongest points.

In fact, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who bowls in tandem with Bumrah, had corroborated upon the same in a recent interview, saying: “When he bowls slower ones and yorkers, those are totally different than anyone else. That’s because of his unique action.”

Such diffirent is his action that most would agree that it can’t be emulated. But, not a certain five-year-old.

A video of a little boy from Pakistan copying Bumrah’s action to perfection has been making rounds on Twitter.

Apart from getting the action right, the boy also beat the batsman all ends up, something his idol is known for, impressing the man himself.

“As a kid, I remember how I used to copy the actions of my cricketing heroes. It’s a wonderful feeling to see kids copying my action today,” he replied to the video.

Bumrah must certainly be a proud man!
