My head is held high & I am aiming for a comeback that’s stronger than the setback”.
Here’s see the recent Instagram post of ace pacer Jasprit Bumrah after major setback:
There is no doubt in saying that Bumrah is a fighter and he will surely come back with a bang. Currently, he is undergoing rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru. In his absence of the pacing spearhead Bumrah the responsibility came on Umesh Yadav’s shoulder as he has been roped in as Bumrah’s replacement. Now, Yadav will have to fill the boots of the ace pacer in the upcoming battle against Proteas.
