Ahead of the World Test Championship (WTC) final at the Hampshire Bowl, India cricketer Jasprit Bumrah opened up about some of the old pictures on his Instagram feed and shared stories behind each.
In a conversation with his wife and anchor Sanjana Ganesan, Bumrah recalled his childhood memories and days when he was playing in U-17. The first photo shown to the pacer was where Bumrah was seen holding the Border Gavaskar Trophy after India’s registered victory over Australia at The Gabba earlier this year.
Bumrah revealed that even though a ‘third string’ side was playing against Australia in the land of the kangaroos, there was a lot of belief in the Indian camp ahead of the 4th Test. He also opened up on a photo that showed him playing the guitar, on which Bumrah accepted that he does not play one. The cricketer disclosed that back in 2014 he was trying to learn to play the guitar but couldn’t. Next in line was a childhood picture with his sister, that took him down a memory lane. It was followed by a selfie which he took after getting a hat trick during U-17 days. Sanjana finally showed the Indian pacer their wedding picture, and Bumrah called it the best day of his life.
The video was shared by International Cricket Council on their Twitter handle.

Several cricket fans commented on the post and veteran cricketer Dinesh Karthik was also amongst them. Calling the video cute, Karthik jokingly wrote that it was good to see Bumrah blushing as it is not seen often. He also stated that Sanjana is clearly hiding all her reactions under the mask.
