Jasprit Bumrah is known for his sensational accuracy and bowling talent but he isn’t regarded highly for his batting capabilities. However he showed a glimpse of his hitting prowess by slamming a six of the last ball of the innings in the 4th ODI against Australia.
And Bumrah’s surprise attack shocked the Indian team including skipper Virat Kohli and he was seen jumping up and down in delight and clapping for Bumrah with a big smile on his face.
On a good batting wicket, Team India made the most of the opportunities and posted a big total against Australia.
Shikhar Dhawan slammed 143 runs while Rohit Sharma scored 95 runs. However in the pursuit of scoring quickly India lost wickets in the death overs and Jasprit Bumrah had to come to the crease to face the last ball of the 50th over.
Patt Cummins had already got two wickets in that over and was bowling supremely. However Bumrah went for a massive slog on the only ball he faced and got a good connection. The ball sailed over the long-on fence and the Indian cricketer collected a six.
This shot by Bumrah was a pleasant surprise for his teammates as everyone in India’s dressing room had a big smile on their face while skipper Virat Kohli couldn’t control his joy. The Indian skipper was seen jumping up and down in delight and clapping.

During India’s recent tour of Australia, BCCI had posted a video in which Bumrah was having batting practice during the training session.
In that video, the Indian cricketer was seen smashing a few big hits and batting aggressively. It seems that this practise has come good for the Indian cricketer.
