The cricket fraternity has come across countless interesting moments during the passage of play. Among the intriguing incidents that happen in the game, some moments usually draw the attention of the fans from all across the world. Imitating others’ action on the field has become quite a trend these days.
Recently, Victoria all-rounder Nic Maddinson hogged the limelight by unleashing his inner Jasprit Bumrah during the game. The video clip of him imitating Bumrah’s bowling action has been doing the rounds on social media.
The all-rounder left his teammates and commentators in stitches as nobody really saw this coming. The incident happened during the very first ball of the 160th over of Western Australia’s innings in the Marsh Sheffield Shield game. Nic Maddinson surprised all of us by bowling just like Jasprit Bumrah.

The all-rounder made up his mind to try something unique. Just as he approached the crease, he perfectly emulated Jasprit Bumrah‘s run-up and bowling action, in what looked pretty much similar.
Maddison then went on to release the ball from outside the off-stump. Quite interestingly, it was one of those light moments that happened during the game as both teams knew the match was tilting towards a draw.

Meanwhile, Jasprit Bumrah is representing Mumbai Indians in the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League. The right-arm fast bowler got off to a worst start as he turned out to be expensive in the first game against Delhi Capitals.
He conceded 43 runs in 3.2 overs as the five-time IPL champions were taken aback by late lower-order hitting by the Delhi Capitals. Nonetheless, Bumrah made a terrific comeback against Rajasthan Royals as he took 3 wickets, giving away only 17 runs.
Mumbai Indians are yet to get off the mark in this season. Having played two games so far this season, they lost all two games against Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals. They will take on Kolkata Knight Riders on April 6 at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium.
