It seems that Jasprit Bumrah just cannot wait for the IPL 2020 to get underway as he is looking forward to bamboozling all the batsmen with his ability of bowling yorkers at will. However, just days before the tournament gets underway, the premier pacer took his experiment to the next level as he switched over from fast bowling to spin. 

Bumrah turns spinner

During MI's recent practice session, the youngster decided to put himself in a spinner's shoes and was seen bowling spin. By the look of it, it seems that he imitates the bowling actions of spin legends Anil Kumble and Shane Warne. However, what really stood out here is that 'Jassi' did not imitate Muttiah Muralitharan's bowling action. 

Apart from the spinners, the Indian pace spearhead was also seen imitating a few pacers as well and on one occasion, he was spotted bowling with his left-arm. He possibly tried to imitate Ashish Nehra as it looked somewhat evident during his follow-through. The video of Jasprit taking his experiments to the next level was posted by the four-time winners on their official YouTube channel. Take a look.
