There is one miserable moment in Jasprit Bumrah’s career that stands out when he came onto the scene in the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2013 with a unique movement. The right-hand pacer took AB de Villiers out and sent him to the pavilion. Many specialists and critics were not pleased with the aggressive action. Bumrah does not appear to get emotional on the cricket pitch after nine years. Whether it’s getting wickets or scoring runs down the order, India’s pace attack has slowed. Let’s look at Jasprit Bumrah’s Career.
Bumrah slipped while trying to preserve a boundary during the third day of play in the ICC World Test Championship (WTC) Final against New Zealand. Rather than shouting or kicking the ground in frustration, the right-hand pacer simply got up and smiled.
Bumrah has now spoken up about his anger issues and how he deals with them. “When I started playing cricket as a youngster, I used to get angry left, right, and center. I used to do all the gimmicks back then, and it never helped my cricket,” Jasprit Bumrah was quoted as saying by the ICC.
Bumrah has a lot of experience and has learned what works and what doesn’t. Soon after winning the IPL, the right-handed pacer made his international debut in 2016 and has since become the team’s attack lead in all three formats.
“I realised what works for me. I am smiling, but the fire inside is burning all the time.”

“Now, over the years, when I have played a good amount of international cricket, I have realized what works for me. I am smiling, but the fire inside is burning all the time,” added Bumrah.
The 27-year-old also advises many young players in the IPL and the Indian team. He believes that remaining cool at all times has helped his development as a cricketer.
“I don’t try to show (aggression), and it has helped me to succeed, and with that controlled aggression, I take my game forward,” said Bumrah.
Bumrah also stated that he did not admire any particular bowler as a youngster and that he acquired this unconventional movement by practicing a lot as a growing-up.
