Not Ronaldo or Messi, Bumrah draws inspiration from this footballer


Jasprit Bumrah is one of the best white-ball bowlers at the cricket scene at the moment. Time and again, the fast bowler has quoted Manchester United star Zlatan Ibrahimovic.


Ahead of the sixth ODI between South Africa and India played in Centurion, Bumrah shared this on his Instagram handle.


The Swedish footballer Zlatan has won eight consecutive league titles with five different clubs including Ajax, Juventus and Inter Milan. Currently playing for Manchester United, the striker has an outspoken nature.


On Zlatan’s birthday, Bumrah had shared

On the ongoing South Africa, Bumrah has had his share of success. He picked 14 wickets in his debut Test series, and followed up with 8 wickets in 6 ODIs. Jasprit Bumrah is the third in the ICC Player Rankings for ODI bowlers and fourth in the ICC Player Rankings for Twenty 20 bowlers.
