'Started from the bottom,' Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah's throwback post will leave you inspired
Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah has come a long way since making his debut for India in January 2016. The Indian speedster is currently the number one ranked bowler in ODIs and is placed on the third spot in Tests. He had a brilliant campaign in the World Cup 2019 and carried his fine form on the tour of West Indies before being sidelined from the ongoing South Africa series due to injury.
Bumrah is regarded as one of the best pacers in the world at the moment due to his consistent ability to bowl in the right areas without compromising on pace. He has earned tremendous success with his hard work but it didn't come easy for the 25-year-old, who had lost his father at a very tender age. Bumrah had to overcome several hurdles in life to reach where he stands today and it has been an incredible journey for the star cricketer.
He recently took to Twitter to post a throwback picture remembering his initial days in cricket. He can be seen taking his award as a teenager in one picture while the other one shows him standing with his Man of the Match trophy at the recently concluded World Cup where he played an instrumental role in helping India reach the semi-final. "Started from the bottom now we're here," the pacer wrote on Twitter.

Bumrah was sensational with the red-ball in India's 2-0 win over West Indies earlier this year. He picked up a total of 13 wickets in two games including back-to-back five-wicket hauls. He was expected to make his home Test debut in the ongoing Test series against South Africa but had to be rested due to an injury.
He is currently recovering from his back injury and will be looking to make a strong comeback in India's upcoming international assignments. Bumrah has so far played 58 Tests, 12 ODIs and 42 T20Is picking up 62, 103 and 51 wickets respectively in the three formats.
