Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah gave a befitting reply to his trolls after lifting the 2018 Asia Cup after a nervy 3-wicket win over Bangladesh in Dubai. Jasprit Bumrah posted a sarcastic message for his naysayers with a picture of the Asia Cup trophy on his official Twitter account. "Some people love to use their creativity on the signboards. Hope this one fits there as well!! #Champions #AsiaCup2018 #lionalwaysroars", he captioned on his social media account.

The post appeared to be a veiled attack in response to a post tweeted by Jaipur Police, who had used his infamous no-ball image on a signboard for a road safety message in 2017. Taking a dig at his no-ball, the advertisement showed him overstepping along with the caption, 'Don't cross the line. You know it can be costly.' Bumrah was evidently left unimpressed with the unwarranted jibe and hence tweeted the same.

 

The Jaipur Traffic Police did apologise for the tweet but the damage was already done.

Bumrah's front foot no-ball had given Pakistan opener Fakhar Zaman an early life in the final of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 which proved costly. Zaman went onto to score a brilliant 114 helping Pakistan post 338/4 wickets after 50 overs. In reply, India were bundled out by Pakistan for 158 runs, winning the final by 180 runs.

However, Bumrah made amends in the next major tournament which was the recently-concluded Asia Cup. He finished with 8 wickets (4 matches) becoming the second highest wicket-taker.

Highlights
  • Jasprit Bumrah was a vital cog in the Indian cricket team's wheel
  • He was India's go-to bowler in the death overs
  • He finished the Asia Cup with 8 wickets
