A tweet by India’s fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah is going viral at the moment. Generally speaking, Bumrah has tried to say something in this tweet in less words, which cricket experts are trying to figure out.
Bumrah has put two pictures of himself in his tweet, which is from the first Test against England at Trentbridge. He wrote the caption of this picture – Still don’t need you i.e. you still don’t need it.
Rain came in the way of India’s victory in the first Test at Trentbridge. India was in a very strong position at that time. India needed 209 runs to win in the second innings and India scored 52 runs for the loss of one wicket.
But the fifth day’s play could not take place due to rain and eventually the match had to be cancelled. India was disappointed, because India’s victory was considered certain.
Jasprit Bumrah took nine wickets in this match and took five wickets in the second innings. This match was excellent for Jasprit Bumrah.
But perhaps he must have been tight in his mind that despite his excellent performance, India could not win the match.
But his latest tweet is not about the vow of not winning the Trentbridge Test.
Actually you will remember that India’s team was defeated in the World Test Championship title match against New Zealand. India did worse with the bat in this test match and New Zealand’s team won the match by eight wickets.
barrage of criticism
Jasprit Bumrah did not get even a wicket in this test. Jasprit Bumrah was criticized as soon as India lost the match.
Various comments were made about Bumrah. There were all kinds of taunts. Someone said – Bumrah should be removed from the team, then someone said that now Bumrah is no longer the former Bumrah. Many people demanded to take him out of the team.
Even before the start of the Test series against England, there was a demand from many sections that he should not be kept in the team.
So once again let’s unravel the mystery of Bumrah’s tweet. Actually it seems that Bumrah was trying to answer his critics.
He was probably trying to say that now that his Trentbridge Test performance is being discussed, he is being appreciated, he does not need such people even in good times.
A large number of people have commented on this tweet of Bumrah. Someone has written that the team needs you, someone said that you are better than Dale Steyn and McGraw.
Somebody has also asked what Bumrah wants to say with this caption, then someone has written that you have proved those people wrong.
Jasprit Bumrah has played 21 Test matches for India so far and has taken 92 wickets. While he has represented India in 67 ODIs and has taken 108 wickets.
