Australia and Victoria batter Nic Maddison was seen imitating the bowling action of ace India speedster Jasprit Bumrah during a Sheffield Shield match between Victoria and Western Australia. Maddinson, who is a left-hander, was seen bowling trying to copy Bumrah’s action with his left-handed bowling delivery.

Jasprit Bumrah first broke onto the seen in IPL 2013 when he was signed by the Mumbai Indians as an unknown entity. Bumrah had only previously made his debut for Gujarat in domestic cricket and his unique action became the talk of the town. Under the tutelage of Sri Lankan great Lasith Malinga in MI, Bumrah honed and polished his skills and soon made his India debut in 2016.
After continuing to wow audiences and experts alike, Bumrah, who was previously written off as a red-ball bowler due to his action, made his Test debut in 2018 against South Africa and now has a Test hat-trick for India and fifers in South Africa, Australia, England and West Indies, apart from India.
Jasprit Bumrah has claimed 113 wickets at an average of 25.42 in 70 ODIs with five four-wicket hauls and one 5-fer, while his T20I wicket-tally read 67 in 57 games at an economy rate of 6.50. The right armer from Gujarat also has 123 scalps in 29 Tests at 21.73 with eight five-wicket hauls.
Australia’s Nic Maddinson Imitates Jasprit Bumrah’s Bowling Action
Meanwhile, Maddinson, who plays for Victoria, was seen imitating Bumrah’s action. Bowling the 161st over, Maddinson came over the wicket to Aaron Hardie and during his run-up, one could spot something different.
The steps were shorter, the arms were clattering and on the very first instance, it appeared as if this was Bumrah bowling left-arm pacer. The ball landed wide and the batter decided to let it go. There were smiles on faces all around, including the wicketkeeper and the fielder at first slip, and even the commentators were in splits. “Well… well bowled Bumrah,” the commentator said on air.
The video was shared by Cricket.com.au, and suddenly, the world of Twitter reacted to the viral video.
