Jasprit Bumrah has been rested for India's limited-overs series against West Indies. However, he will be traveling to the Caribbean islands shortly as he is a part of the Indian squad for the Test series. Team India will be playing a two-match Test series against the Windies later this month. The series will also be a curtain-raiser on Virat Kohli & Co.'s ICC World Test Championship. India have been the top-ranked side in the game's longest format and would be looking to capitalise on in their quest to become the first-ever World Test Champions in June 2021.
However, before Bumrah travels to the Caribbean to showcase some exceptional performances, he got a privilege to meet someone special and according to him, it was a day well spent. So who was it? Let's find out.
Guess what? The top-ranked ODI pacer met the 'Wall' Rahul Dravid . Joining them both was Karun Nair, who is the second Indian to score a triple century in Test cricket. The 25-year-old speedster took to social media and wrote that it is so great to meet Rahul Sir and that it was an honour to spend time with him.

Even the fans liked this interaction and came forward to hail both the great cricketers.
Jasprit Bumrah had an outstanding ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. He was the fifth-highest wicket-taker of the tournament and the Men In Blue's leading wicket-taker with 18 scalps in nine matches at an economy rate of 4.41. His performances were instrumental in India reaching the last four. Even in the semis, he was quite impressive against New Zealand which restricted them to 239. Nonetheless, an early top-order collapse ended India's title hopes.
