Bumrah shared his favorite Zlatan Ibrahimovic quote on Instagram.
Jasprit Bumrah is sweating it out in the gym and leaving no stone unturned before facing the mighty Australians.
Indian team has a major focus on the fitness and every player is taking it seriously. Those who were not, started giving it more importance after veteran batsmen like Yuvraj Singh and Suresh Raina were dropped from the side because of lack of fitness.
Bumrah, who is one of India’s finest death bowlers currently, rues the fact that he lacks the charisma that someone like football legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic has.
Going by his recent Instagram post, Bumrah seems to be a huge fan of the Manchester United star as he keenly follows the footballer and his quotes.
Taking to Instagram, Bumrah posted a photo from his workout session which read: ““Lions dont compare themselves with humans “- zlatan ibrahimovic. Classic zlatan quote wish i had the same charisma which he has. #zlatanfan #fitness #hardwork.”
Bumrah is part of the Indian squad for the first three ODI matches against Australia. The series will start from 17th September.
Virat Kohli and boys are enjoying their leisure time after a long tour of Sri Lanka where they remained unbeaten in all formats.
Bumrah’s bowling performance was extraordinary in the series, picking up a wicket every 15 balls. His tally of 15 wickets is the most he has managed in any ODI series so far. His average was also a sensational 11.26 in this series.
The real challenge will be against a competitive Australian side. It will be interesting to see how he bowls on the Indian pitches which usually offers very less for the pacers and mostly helps the batsmen.
Bumrah will also look to work on his front foot no-ball which cost India in the World T20 2016 semi-final and Champions Trophy final.
