Indian speedster Jasprit Bumrah is one of the many Indian cricketers celebrating their birthdays today (December 6). Legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar has given him a new nickname while wishing him on his special day.
Jasprit Bumrah got the opportunity to play with the legend in his early days at Mumbai Indians. His career has gone only upwards since then. He skittled a lot of batsmen since then and Tendulkar has picked that to give him a new nickname.
Adding to his nicknames like ‘Boom’ and ‘Yorker king’, he will be proud to add ‘Jasprit Boomerang’ to the list. Tendulkar tweeted that Bumrah keeps coming at the batsmen and he should keep doing the same while making India proud.
Tendulkar wrote in his tweet, “World-class bowlers keep coming back at the batsmen just like a Boomerang! For me, you are Jasprit Boomerang! Keep making India proud. Happy Birthday, @Jaspritbumrah93.”
The birthday boy is currently out of the Indian squad with a lower back injury and is expected to join the team in a few weeks.
